yeah i have a mig welder in the garage and would never dare go at a keg. the silver solder method is pretty amazing. cut the hole, dimple, apply heat. tada.

Attached are my test solders on some 1" ferrules into the keg lid. Pretty pleased with how it turned out, some things to improve on for the real thing, hard to level the lid so the solder pooled a little on one side.

I plan to do 1" ferrules for piping and 2" ferrules for the heaters, hope to get to them soon.

Well done! I'm going to try solder for sure, welders here seem to want about $40 a piece to put on anyway which will add up fast.

did you ever try the 2" ferrules? If so can you post some specifics of your dimpling tool for them?

I braised on a 1.5" ferrule onto my keggle earlier this week so I could triclamp an element. My first shot at it, wasn't the best solder job but its watertight. I used stay-silv flux with safety-silv 56 solder. I used this fitting to dimple the keg (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o04_s00_i00) altho when I bought it, it was only $10, not $30 as it is now.

so your dimple is to the outside yet the TC went from the outside inwards. how did you manage that? make the dimple slightly bigger and count on the solder to mechanically bind them instead of a press fit?
