Default cheap camlocks

Looking to upgrade brew stand to camlocks. Does anyone now where to find 1/2" camlocks kinda cheap? Have been on bargainfittings.com and didn't know if that's the cheapest place.

Thanks
Jake

I found good prices, reasonable shipping, fast order delivery, and fantastic customer service with stainlessbrewing.com.

I had been using 1/2" barbs and hose clamps that had winged screw heads.

You can try here as well.

AHS also has them if you want to pick up some ingredients at the same time, free shipping this weekend so you may save some money.

Advice:
The Barbed fittings restrict flow to 3/8", with a little elbow grease you can get the 1/2" silicone hose on the 1/2" threaded fitting with a hose clamp without restricting flow.
If I had to do it again I would not have purchased the barbs. Also, get some extra silicon o-rings, you will thank me later.

Pro-flow dynamics has them in aluminum and nylon, both of which are much cheaper than SS. Their prices on the SS are also the same as the other vendors. And FWIW worth I've been happy with my aluminum ones.

For two dozen donuts my company's machine shop can put the NPT fittings on a lathe and mill off the threads. I got 6 done in just a few hours.
