Hmmm.. How about online? I can't find any decent ones on ebay and Swagelok seems to charge a fortune for them, beside their 90 degree elbows look welded.. :?

Let me shed a little light on this. I deal with Swagelok here in Calgary. "The Main Man" there told me, and I quote, "Stainless steel elbows, couplers, etc don't have an official pressure rating because the testing facilities have never been able to produce enough pressure to cause them to fail". Even the 1/8" tubing and compression fittings are rated at 10,000 psi. Yes, you pay a little more for this, but in the long run, whatever you build will not fail. Not to mention the corrosion resistance factor.

The flaw with experience is, it causes us to forget what we were like when we didn't have any.
