Default Weldless fitting on aluminum?

Love my aluminum pot. (also have a keggle). Is it feasible to use weldless ball valves etc on aluminum?

Yes, no problem as long as it's not extremely thin wall.

No problems with my weldless ball valve from bargain fittings or sight glass/temperature probe from Bobby_M on my Aluminum brew kettle.

I have an Update International APT-40

Go for it.
