Last night's progress report

Items completed
- handles installed
- heat sink installed
- SSRs mounted
- Tags applied
- Internal components mounted on back plate
- backplate installed
- Wired hot and neutral powersupply

A couple of tips -
Handles - drill mounting holes before paint
Backplate - Take the extra time - maybe 20 mins at most and tap the mount holes in the back plate. Makes mounting so easy, and will make it TONS easier to replace components WHEN something fails down the road.

I'm having a ton of fun working on this!

Hoping to get the grounds all run tonight.

Time - 7.5
Total 24.5

Price was right, shipping was fast, i literally eyeballed and marked where the fittings should go, drilled my holes, installed the coil and bam.
leaktest on the HLT for an hour and then leaktest on the coil for an hour running pump.

need to scrub out the bottom of my hlt (used to be BK) and the hose barbs will be changed to stainless

Time 4hrs
Total 4hrs
What diameter coil did you get? Looks like its a perfect fit

I am totally wishing I had seen the coil from stainlessbrewing first as I'm getting 50' of 1/2" in the mail today that I now have to coil myself. Looks like I'll save ~$10 to inflict >$10 of headache upon myself...

Looking good though

I got the 10.5" Dia coil. once they were in stock, it shipped within 2 days, and I had it a few days after that.

And the compression bulkheads are sweet too. VERY happy with that purchase

Yeah, I'm a staunch DIYer, but after coiling a copper IC and a copper CFC, i was NOT going to coil 50' of stainless that I could have coiled to spec for $10 more than i could buy the tube. Good luck! Take your time!
