[QUOTE=SpikeBrewing;3613906]I've been looking into that for awhile now. The main problem is that water heater elements are straight threaded and nobody makes a 1" straight thread coupler; everything is tapered. So to answer you're question at the moment no I can't.
I can get you the coupler to weld in if you want. I am sure you can do it. It doesn't have to be straight taper, with the ring, it is sealed quite well. Keep the heat on the fitting, for awhile, no secrets. Heat the mass, and then get the kettle to join. No big deal.
