Default Best place to buy a thermowell?

I have to put a thermowell in my kettle for my incoming controller, I was just wondering where I could find the cheapest ss thermowell, pref weldless.

I bought some weldless thermowells from Brewer's Hardware that I never ended up using as I ultimately bought Stout Tanks. But, I can tell you they are extremely high quality even if mine do nothing but sit on a shelf looking shiny.

Dudda diesel also has a nice one for about 15 bucks, IIRC. A DS18b20 will slide right in.

I have to plug Brewer's Hardware. I am happy with the one I bought from them. I also have one from More Beer as well. The Brewer's hardware one is better. It has a rounded end and the More Beer has a crimped end.

Yeah, I bought one from MoreBeer a long time ago that goes through the airlock bung to monitor ferm temps in the center of the carboy. It is nothing more than a ss tube that has one end crimped and poorly welded shut which makes it extremely difficult if not dangerous to get it through the bung. On the other end it has a flared end. The flaring process reduced the diameter of the tube at the flare so I had to use a dremel to grind it out so that I could get the temp probe in it. Over all that Morebeer part sucks, hopefully they have updated it.

Would it be too hard to buy some tubing and spin it closed?

Making copper thermowells is not too difficult. Stainless I would definitely buy.
