sorry to side track the thread.
Honestly they would be very hard to implement onto a kettle with our tooling. There are a lot of alignment issues and tolerance issues that come up

I drilled a hole in mine for the weldless spigot. No problems cranking that bad boy down.

Hey Poptarts, nice job on the kettle. Do you mind sharing the website(s) you used to get the kettle, valve, and thermometer setup? What was the total cost? I love the setup so I am trying to price it out myself. Is this the 18/10 or 18/8 kettle? Did you do the drilling yourself? How difficult was it?
Thanks in advance!

18/10 means 316 and 18/8 is 304. Many people don't know the difference and a lot of times kettles are labeled as 18/10. You will not find a standard kettle that is 18/10 (316).

Is that thermometer a little below the bottom of the pot? Or if you put it on a flat table, is it even with the bottom? When I put mine in, i plan on it going higher, so that the heat doesn't hurt the thermometer. You may need a heat shield with it that low.
