Default Stainless suppliers, Mandrel bends and tubing

Looking at making an exhaust. Wondering who you guys use for suppliers of bends and tubing. 3" 304 is what I am looking for.

Also I found this ACE Stainless from another thread, I see they don't have seamless tubing, but welded. How is that for quality? How smooth is that weld? Should seamless be what I am looking for?

16-gauge?

While we are in a new thread. Solarflux, worth a dam or not really? I have read mixed reviews. Seems like the guys that have been doing this for a while hate it, while other say it works. I really don't have a back purge system.

TIA

Thanks for the info, I ended up buying from Columbia Mandrel Bending, it shipped today. Good prices but I was a little disappointed that it took them so long to ship out. Oh well, I still have some supplies to get ready but I was hoping to start planning with the bends.
