Holy crud, that place is the most expensive I've seen yet, by far, at least for compression fittings. The prices are almost 50% more than buying directly from a Swagelok dealer.

Yeah, McMaster Carr rocks... especially with the compression fittings, you can build exactly what you need on the site. I have ordered from them a couple times.
