Looking for the basic gear- spiles primarily. found a few sites:

this seems about the best Ive found:
http://atkinsonmaple.com/catalogue/pipes/5_16
http://atkinsonmaple.com/catalogue/pipes/beginner_kits

Lots of ebay and secondary merchandisers showed up, this was the only supplier that looked like they were in the business, and not just hocking crap they'd lifted.

any other thoughts about mail order suppliers?
or where to find more local to SW washington suppliers?

Completely irrelevant comment really, but I love learning new words for unfamiliar stuff!
No maple-related activities in this part of the world.

originally, sugarmakers used wooden spiles. You could certainly make your own, assuming you don't want hundreds of taps. The advantage of the metal spiles is that you can hang a bucket from them with ease, but a simple metal ring around a wooden spout would work the same. For that matter, cut blank metal tube stock would also work with some filing.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
