Default B3 full couplings not ready for welding?

The first line of the description states:

Quote:
This fitting is not currently suitable for welding.
http://morebeer.com/view_product/174...upler_-_1_2%22

What gives? Do you think these are not cleaned and therefore covered in flammable solvents? I don't know why they would not be suitable for welding.

Any info would be appreciated. Thank

Those appear to be the same as the couplings that I use for all of the welded brew gear I've made. I'm not sure where B3's claim is coming from.

here is the response I received from MoreBeer:

Quote:
Hi Justin,
The couplers we currently have are gas pipe couplers and do not look as pictured. They have flanges on either end making them almost impossible to get a clean weld on.
We hope to have the regular straight piped couplers back in stock in the next 2-3 weeks. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks,

If any of you are looking to buy fittings from B3 right now, CONFIRM YOU ARE GETTING THE FITTINGS YOU THINK YOU ARE!!!

This has been a public service announcement from your favorite gnome

If you need full 1/2" fittings that will work, you can order them through mcmaster.com I have ordered through them in a pinch and all of their stuff is reasonably priced and arrives fairly fast..

I order from B3 all the time, and i have never had problems like this from them.. sorry to hear. Thanks for the heads up!!!

B3 has been saying that their "weldable" couplers will be in stock in 2-3 weeks since February. I recently bought my SS couplers from Northern Brewer Homebrew Supply.

Prost
