    Hey there ! Was wondering if anyone knows a source for titanium or stainless steel beads/balls in the size of 3 or 4 mm ? I heard it mentioned few times in various thread so if someone has done the reasearch already please share. I have a concept in the works that allows me to have metal ,since my heater is not in direct contact with the balls :). It works great with the glass ones but i dont see why not to satisfy the curiosity for the metal ones.

    I feel like titanium spinning around in quartz could cause some damage.

    None of those balls will ne spinning .They will sit immobile in the heater.It is a dry herb log concept.

    I had a link vxb.com but it is in the US and sells also chinese parts so not for you I think. You'd rather order from china direct, if you trust their materials.
    But there are many ball bearing manufacturers.
    Spheres are used for grinding too.

    But
    No need for high precision balls. They just need to be safe health wise up to this temperature, no?

    Sure, McMaster Carr will sell you several types of SS balls in lots of sizes. Also Ti, but there you'll have to buy them in 'real' (SAE) size, and they're kinda pricey.
