best price that I have found

call Mike at coolightwest.com rather than go online and order. 208-861-2187 let him know you are a fellow burner - why call? can't let them know online you want the burner discount - can only get it if you call. I recently purchased 2.3mm for $0.99 per foot with no quantity limits - don't know the c...
