I had one of these buckets in my previous setup and never had problem when boiling in it.
HLT is almost done, I screwed up trying to tighten lock nut on RTD sensor (M8 thread)- too much force and thread on sensor broken.. I was pissed off..
When I calmed down I got the idea, I am going to use 1/2"-1/4" reducer which fits perfectly, put sensor trough it and seal it with epoxy.. hope it will work.
