Paid $36.00 for a roll of Solder today from Ferguson.
We raised our prices today the moment we hit Ferguson's parking lot.
That is all.
Something is wrong with your relationship with your supply house.
My branch managers are comfortable looking at the soles of my boots on their desks while we discuss daily events mixed with family matters.They are good people I love messing with.
The whole serious business thing makes me laugh and the branch managers know this."I know how much you pay,so let's get to it"
I am not a large volume purchaser.Just an honest man looking for a fair deal.
$36.00 a roll.It would behoove you to use me as your purchasing agent.
Gimme this guys phone number...He'll never know where I got it.
Adam, when we use to do new work in the 80's & 90's we were spending close to $15,000 a month at the supply house, and some of those contacts are still in the area. We always buy bulk even though we are a 2 man shop, but we are going to have to get serious on the solder issue here. Ferguson has been out of the ball park with it's prices lately, and it's been forcing us to buy elsewhere.
I probably shouldn't complain too much though, considering I got over $400.00 worth of Moen cartridges(1222 & 1225) for free today from ferguson.
It just seems lately that we are working for the supply houses and not ourselves. We have not had a price increase on service in 10 years...it's time.
Well stolen I believe a half inch fitting takes a half inch of solder and a three quarter takes a three quarter inch peice ect ect.. I used lenox didn't care for it I do use there flux thou I usually use aqua... Floss maybe something aqua I pay 24.99 at my local building supply " they order it thru my wholesaler thou. Seanny
