I test the continuity and it solid. I hope to get 400 square feet of tile down over yhe weekend and if i do I can pull all the toy out of my brewery and try to get some shots of it.
Thanks Sorry to here about a flooded basement. I think I follow. Does the wire solder to the big nut on the element itself ? Is the o-ring on the outside of kettle as on the Jbox or attached different without the shim?
