Trash Chute?

Has anyone found the OEM for the galley trash chute and lid that FP uses? It seems a lot of models use the same one. I would like to replace mine with the same model. I've seen very similar ones on Lagoons also.

Caution: don't put paper towels soaked with acetone thru the plastic trash chute, the plastic immediately turns a terrible shade of brown. Now our trash chute looks like it was used for head!!

Maybe have one made up out of stainless or aluminium and be done with it. As I recall it is basically just a tube with a lip on it right?

Re: Trash Chute?

We had a trash shute and lid (galley bin next to sink) turned from some wood, stained to match the galley panels, fitted a flush draw pull and it all looks very smart.
