  • Solder

    We usually buy Solder by bulk, 50 rolls at a time, and we are just about of out stock.

    So today my father went to place an order, and he was quoted $25.00 a roll from the supply house!

    Barnett wants $19.50 a roll.

    Wtf happened to the Solder prices?

    They're getting kinda out of hand the last year or so.

    have you considered Hodes Co or Wolverine Brass? They usually give good discounts especially when you buy in bulk.

          There is no way to propress everything you do..At some point in time you have to solder something ..I may be wrong though..Personally, I am not going to invest in propress till I hit the lottery

            50 rolls lasts us about 2 years or so, and we were floored when we heard these prices today.

            We are going to have some decisions to make... that's for sure.

              What a fleecing ..$ 1,250.00 before taxes of course..But if it lasts 2 years doesn't seem that bad ..Yeah it does..

                im the one who does the most soldering and i get 6 roles at a time so they may not see the jump in price as much as you see it every 2 years

                  Re: Solder

                  I was billed $30 a roll with Ferguson a couple months ago and when I brought it to my salesman's attention......he corrected it and I got them for $15/roll. I bought a dozen from Southern Supply down here for $14/roll. All these prices were for Sterling solder which is the most expensive....but I love it. I know that metal prices have gone up in the last few months but they might be able to take care of you if you order in bulk.
