Default Best place to buy Perlick's, shanks?

Started searchng but Perlick is mentioned in a thousand threads so thought I would start a new one and ask: what is the best place to get 4-5 faucets and shanks? Looking to do a keezer build as I have outgrown my two keg kegerator. Looking for a great price and good customer service. Free shipping would be awesome as well. Thanks in advance!

I will check you out this week birdman!

I am looking to snag 5 or so 525SS, shanks, and knobs. Looking around HBT some more, it looks like they have gone up in price quite a bit since last year. I saw several posts of low to mid $20's from 2010 and 2011 but most places are now selling for $30-$40 per 525ss. Did they inflate that quickly in price? I saw a couple of group buys that did not seem to get off the ground either...odd!

a vendor accidentally sold the 525SS for the wrong price, it took them a while to notice and judging by the folks here that bought they probably lost quite a bit of money.

That twenty dollar price for the 525's is from about two years ago before they discontinued the 425's. Since then the 525's have increased almost double.

If there is interest I guess we could try to go a group buy and perhaps one of the fine vendors on these forums would cut us all a little discount? If interested, post here and I will contact the vendors (or like BBC here, they may be monitoring and volunteer something?). If so, I think this thread moves to another forum...
