  • Price of solder? W.T.F.

    Was looking to restock the van today went to the supply house for some odds and ends so I ask for 5 rolls of lead free, counter guy tells me that the price just went up and it is now $30/lb. Lead free and 50/50 is over $20/lb. What the hell is going on?

      I know a certain company that sells a tool allowing a user to join pipe without using solder!

        That's funny, I'll continue to demote the trade by buying at HD where I get 1 lb of lead free solder for 16.82 a lb.

                Going to HD right now to buy some. Maybe my local HD hasn't risen the price yet. I just priced some last monday. Maybe I'll still get it at the lower price.

                  Rick called the other night and was complaining about the cost of lead and some how we got into solder and he said he is paying $30 per pound for lead free at his supply house.

                    I don't know how to tell the guy how much I'm paying.
                    What'd he do,beat his sales manager at pencil shaving?

                      Ko-inky-dinky.

                      Just picked up a roll of Silvabrite this afternoon, never bothered to look at the reciept.

                      $28.77...WTF???

                      HD here selling Oatey for $23.94, as far as I'm concerned Silvabrite is worth the extra.
                      Can't put a price on assurance when you're in the basement edging the valve back on and ready to scramble up two flights of stairs.

                              Thats $18...sheesh, seems like it was $12 a roll no so long ago.

                              I personally won't use the Oatey HD sells unless I'm out & supplies are closed...bad experiences with it.
