+ 1 for create a bolt. Just built 10 gal MLT. Used create a bolt, worked great.

I have a bunch left over from when I built my cooler MLT. PM me if anyone needs a few.

Thanks guys... I can get the stainless kit for the inside- no problem- but I'd rather use the 5/8 zinc coated on the outside for the wider fender flare.

So... Stainless inside and zinc outside is okay?

Zinc outside is fine. It's not ever going to touch the wort.

You can drive from store to store "building" your tun and waste time and fuel or you can spend about ten minutes on bargain fittings website. I ended up doing both. Bargain Fittings was a lot less hassle. The extra shipping $ easily equals your time and fuel. And it's all SS. YMMV

In the upper Midwest theres a chain called Menard's and they had 6 packs of 5/8" stainless flat washers for $1.50 or so. My only issue is that I can't get the hose barb and ball valve far enough onto the nipple for the 10 gallon tun unless I use like 9 washers, and the whole thing is too narrow for the current 5 gal home depot HLT. ( I'm using a 5 gal. HLT and a 10 gal. M/LT). I'll be using for fly sparging once I can get the right parts for the 5 gal. Any suggestions for either dilemma?

+1 True Value. Less then 20,000 people in the whole county but they stock better beer widget stuff than the big box in the big city. Take a washer that is close to what you need or make a cardboard cutout of what you need. I have even showed them a cell phone picture of my problem and had them find a solution or work around.

Check a local hardware store. Stadium hardware had them here in Ann Arbor. I should have gone there first instead of going to Lowe's or Home Depot. They always have what I need with someone who knows what they are talking about. Their building is not a stadium so you don't have to walk a mile between sections, and they are usually a very quick in and out for whatever you need.

The Fastenals in DuBois and Clearfield have them in like 4 packs ... or 10 packs. I can't remember. I bought some in DuBois a few months back.
