Default Copper discount

I was wondering if anyone wanted to go in on 100' of copper tubing with me. I can get it through McMaster-Carr. It costs $295 for 100'. So if I can get three other people to toss in $74 we can all get 25' of tubing. Copper is so f*cking expensive.

What size is that? I was looking through some thread here last week and someone had found a place that sells copper very reasonably. It was like 50' of 3/8 for less than $40. I can't seem to find it now.

You can get a 25' copper chiller online for $50. Why pay $74 and still have to make it?

let me know what you guys are looking for. My brother is a copper tubing importer. He sells rigid tube, but I can likely get a deal on coils of soft too.

I was looking for copper to build a counterflow chiller and I found a good price at Ace Hardware.

Lowe's had it for something like $77 for 20 feet or something ridiculous. Ace had 20 feet for $25. You can find it on their web site. I got mine at the local Ace. I wanted 25 feet but the precut package only came in 10 or 20. The guy said he could cut me 25 feet from a big roll in the back but that was almost $3 a foot! He said it was the same copper but he didn't know why it was so much more expensive.

There is also 25 feet of copper on eBay for about $25 (search for copper tubing) including shipping. But it says it is .020 wall thickness, compared to the .030 that you usually find. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.

Just thought I'd let you all know what I found in my recent search for copper.

Oh, and that's for 3/8 OD soft copper.

Or you could go through your neighborhood and steal some out of all the AC units.
