Hi Bob,I would say no, there is not a shortage of copper. I order 6 pounds of Cu and a bunch of tin cups from Isomass in Calgary last Wednesday, it arrived here in Vancouver on Friday morning. I don't know if you're able to order from Isomass (American vs Canadian suppliers? what a headache!) but I've always found their service very prompt.Cheers,Reba

Over the years I’ve worked with Bruno and Costech, and they’ve been very prompt with filling orders. However, I’ve been waiting since August on reduced copper wire and tin capsules. Is there a worldwide shortage of copper? Anyone else having trouble with Costech backorders?
