Default Swagelok bulkhead fittings

Disclaimer: I am not selling these, not bidding on these, and I don't have any affiliation with the seller.

I have these swagelok bulkhead fittings all over my brewstand. SS-810-11-8. They normally sell for about $25 new, best I've seen is $15. There are some on eBay for crazy low prices. Now is a good time to need these!

Here are some photos of where I use them:

Only selling the male half makes this pretty damn useless right? haha

Not if you use them as I have. Valve on the outside, 1/2 tubing on the inside. Quite versatile and useful.

Right, but how do you connect things to your kettle and mash tun?

I'm confused with the question. The fittings have a locknut to lock the vessel wall between the hex of the fitting. You get 1/2" male thread outside and a compression fitting inside.

My valves all have male camlock quick disconnects. My hoses have female fittings.
