I had that surprise a while ago. Bartoline is 6.75 per 4 litres at my local hardware store. I can only think that the escalating cost is because it is hardly used for heating these days. I use it...

I'm not planning any production, just the repair of some old frames. The local expert says he wants to mig weld them, which is a bad idea if it's 531. You're right, clearly the tubing available...
