Thanks in advance,

Ben I used 3/8 high temp tubing, the tube from the pump to the element is less than a foot and the tube from the tee to the top of the mash tun is about two feet so I have pretty short runs and no restriction issues.
I used a 1/2 inch stainless tee with 3/8 barbed fittings the tee and element are connected with a 1 inch long 3/8 tube with clamps.
I will take some pic's for you and post them soon.

Jalapeno nice artwork !

With the skills and equipment you've got at your disposal, you could easily upgrade this to all-electric! Then soot on kegs wouldn't be an issue!

I dont really have a soot issues,but one day I'll most likely go all electric I think I would sell the stand and start over if I did that...The worst of my alleged skills is eletrical/electronics makes my head hurt !

Thanks Pat

Pat,
Thank you for the pics, that helps a lot. I may try my 1/2" tubing clamped down to the smaller stubs on the RIMS tube, since 1/2" is what I have handy. Or maybe I could sleeve the stubs on the RIMS tube. I wonder if there is a compression fitting I could fit to the output side of the RIMS tube so that the T for the probe could be one solid piece. I have a 3 tier tree without many places to mount my gear. I guess I need to weld on some shelves. I will order a PID and an RTD probe today.

I'm going to work up the layout for mine and take it to a sign shop to have it cut in black vinyl. Maybe even the tamper-resistant vinyl that is used on street signs and such.

If you have a logo, and send me the dimensions of your panel where things are, I'd be happy to help you get a file you could take to a local sign shop and have done... or I could have it made here in Boise and send it to you. I'd love to have someone with your skills owe me a favor
