I need SS 1/2" elbow fittings for my heat exchanger coil in my HLT. The best deal i found so far was here http://www.gvc.net/p/4662/male-90-elbow however, the shipping turned out to be rediculous. Anyone know of a better deal?

What size tube connection do you need? You need to make sure the tube connection and the threads are the right size.

The number I set out above is for 1/2" NPT x 1/2" tube elbow (ss-810-2-8).
