Good Job. I think that if I were to try it I would mill a bushing on the lathe.

Good Job.

I thought about making one, but then I started using the grant I have right before it goes to the fermenter. I just oxygenate with a corny dip-tube wand with a airstone on the tip connected with vinyl tubing to one of those small bernzomatic O2 bottles and regulator. Nice setup though man. Not ghetto in the least bit. What are the flanges made of, and will they touch the wort/beer? If they are galvanized I wouldn't use them unless they have no chance of touching the beer (ie, if your gasket and copper/brass fittings prevent this).

This glass cost me I think 4 dollars from any music store. the flanges are pipe hanger/type, they are 1/2" npt, and then just some hex bolts to hold it all together/take apart and clean.

The copper small tube connects to my O2 source, then to some plastic tubing to a O2 stone in the center of the sight glass. With brass fittings, I would guess it cost about 20 bucks to put this together. Gasket material by the sheet, just cut to fit, I am waiting on some small fanges to install where the glass meets the walls of the larger flange.
I just found this thread, wanting to do something similar myself. Question: Are those pipe flanges galvanized? Stainless ones are pretty expensive, but I don't want to use galvanized...

Thanks,
Phill

They are galvanized, but because of the gasket and sight-glass they never touch wort. Honestly, if you can swing it, pay 85 bucks and get a pro-triclover one, till you find and buy stainless flanges, bolts, gaskets, you are probably better off just buying one.

Thanks for the prompt reply!

I have another idea that I am going to try. I ordered the glass slides. Once they come, I will post my success or failure. I hope to do this pretty cheap.
