Great info, thanks.
Can you please take a pic of bottom, to see how you mounted bottom part of the screen.

Also, do you leave screen to sit in kettle freely?

Sure ill take a few tonight when I get home from work. In regards to the screen I just let it sit in the kettle. I've never had any issue with it spilling or tipping if that's what your getting at. In fact it really doesn't move at all. I did however change my dip tube set up from the standard straight bulkhead with a 90 degree pick up to a 45 degree bulkhead and pickup. This allows the screen to sit flush on the bottom of the keggle. Not a necessity but that's what I decided to do.

Thanks.
I am thinking to add another ring on the bottom and shorten whole screen a bit, so top is in approximate level with keg top.
This way I could put lid during the chill.

Dude, you shoulda kept it thick! How badass would 1/4" rings be? Of course, your spot welder would protest....

What kinda lathe are you using?

Even though the thread starter hasn't posted for a couple years, he's definitely started a trend.
