Over here copper rod is available on Fleabay. Are you trying to buy imperial sizes? Try quoting metric sizes.

Surprisingly, stainless steel is not suitable for boiler work, because of corrosion problems.

This is true for every grade of stainless steel with the exception of duplex stainless steel.

Now you mention that I know that's the case. There's still a major debate going on even about duplex boliers. (Promise I'll wake up soon)

Good idea but, as you know, getting Ebay to deliver is a bit of a problem at the moment

What about bronze welding (brazing) rod?  :thinking:  Your local welding shop should have some as small as 3mm.

Good idea, I'll be calling the BOC depot later today, They are only about 15mins from the house.

Thanks for your input Team. Some great suggestions, and confirmation my question was a bit dumb.
