Default Where to buy SS counter flow chiller?

NY brew supply said they where to busy for a custom one. Anyone knows of a vendor that sells one or can take a custom order? I just want a stainless steel one. I am trying to go all stainless for my brew setup.
Thanks!

Would it be easy or would bending tools be required?

Midwest Supplies has some. I don't have one myself and I don't know size you are looking for.

If I was going to do something like that and it had to be SS, I would buy one of these and mod it.

That might be the only way to end up with a stainless CFC, because I can't seem to find one pre-made on the interwebs...

Cheers!

Can I run a hose through the immersion coil with out kinking the pipe? I could go immersion but people here likes their counterflows.

am i the only one missing the point? the coil is housed in rubber hose, why the extra expense of stainless. Stainless is much more difficult to bend than copper, cant imagine that it would be easy to coil inside a hose. Not to rain on your parade though, I have learned so much by people here just going for things I would not have thought of.
