Where's the best place to buy copper tubing for making your own Counter Flow Chiller? I've heard some people use EBay-- but I'd be willing to pay another 10 bucks or so to get it at an actual store. Do stores like Home Depot carry this stuff at a reasonable price?

Thanks!

In my area HD is much cheeper than Lowes for copper tubing. When I built mine I think the price at Lowes was 75% higher.

Look in the yellow pages for a plumbing supply house. I get any length I want and at a price well below Lowes or Home Depot.

I read in another forum that scrap yards sometimes have good copper stockpiles. I plan to visit the local place today for another project I'm working on.
