Where is the best price on tower shanks?

I'm either doing a DIY tower or I'll buy from ACU Metal Fab. (most likely) so I'll need to supply the shanks. I see most online HB retailers don't carry them. MicroMatic and a couple others have them... So I'm looking for the not so common retailers I might not have checked yet...

Thanks

The cheapest place I've found for shanks and the like is http://rapidswholesale.com especially if you buy in bulk.

Good luck!

They are expensive. I am adding a PVC tower to my portable kegerator. Shanks cost $25 each, twice what the taps cost.
