Default Drilling for elements

I almost don't want to share this one, for fear that they'll all disappear before I get one.

Holy crap! Does IKEA ship in the states? Up in Canada they don't offer any sort of shipping whatsoever (or didn't last I checked).

I'd wonder if sink stainless steel is the same density/thickness/hardness as a kettle wall.

Super cool find, most likely!

LOL so it's even available on the Canadian site, $15, but still. I go to check shipping (they suddenly DO ship) and shipping alone for this 1lb item, is $62!

Nearly fell over dead.

Hand delivered by a Swede perhaps.

It says hole diameter 1-1/4 and the problem is that an element needs 1-3/8".
