I'm trying to find about 10' of 6 awg 4 conductor SO (SOOW, etc) cord to power my brew rig. Anyone know of a cheap source, say less than $4.00/foot?

I found this late last night and bought it RV Power Cord. It's 6/3 & 8/1, 36' with plug attached. It cost $67.00 after shipping.

how much do you need. I think I paid less than $2 a foot at my local ELE store. If you paid for it and shipping, i will go to the store and ship it to you

I got 10/3 and 10/4 on teh cheap at Menards - By the construction power cords, not in electrical. It was about $1.00/ft for 10 10 gauge...

Not sure if they have 8 though...

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

That was AFTER shipping, so it worked out to be $1.86 per foot. I'll be able to wheel the rig out in the driveway if I want to so it worked out great.

I needed 6 awg, lots of places I've found locally carry up to 8 awg but I couldn't find what needed for less than $4 a foot.
