buy some SS filler rod.
the most shocking was the gas
$38 +tax :-0
normally I pay $25
I ask ...whats going on?
the guy said ; did'nt you hear about the price increase due to gas
shortage? and shows me a piece of print out. there is a shortage of
the gases which the argon and other welding gases are extracted from.
then he said; you know .......supply and demand , price goes up.
the filler rod was $18 ( 1/16" , 1 lb, 308/ 308L)
he goes your total is $56 = tax.....
I say ..... let me.... see there is something wrong there.
he hits the esc key to go back to the prev screen. and shows itto me..
get this !!!!!!
on the screen detailed info ;
Argon gas: cost : $5.80
gross profit: $31.00
the bottom line.....these as*****s are copying the oil companies and
scaming the customers, knowing that we have NO choice but to pay for
I had to take my business else where.
Got the argon for $26 and the filler rod for $6.50 /lb
