What is a good source for ball valves? I need a few for my r.i.m.s. system Iím working on and I canít seem to find a cheap source. I tried McMaster-Carr but the site is so big I canít find Ĺ inch stainless steel ball valve that are cheaper than Homebrew shops. Any help would be appreciated.

Do they need to be SS? If not, your local HD or Lowe's will have plenty o' brass ball valves.
