You need liquid flux rather than the paste you're used to. Other than that it's pretty easy.
See this thread for a lot of hints. I should get an award for reading all 119 pages of that

Thanks for both of you gentlemen for clearing up and more importantly showing me the post
describing how JB Weld failed.With soldering, I've only done it with copper pipes using a
propane torch. Anyth...

Why not just solder the nut on? I have done it a few times and worked out great.I wouldn't
think that the solder would hold up to the torque you may apply when tightening the element.
But if it has wo...

I'd appreciate it if you could check on the type of JB Weld. I'm assuming it handles the
torquing when you screw in a new element and tighten it down. Did you do any roughing up of the

I think quite a few people have been using it. I have on mine. It's been about six months now
with no leaks.Did you put your nut on the outside or inside? What type of JB Weld did you use?

Ugh. My bad. Thanks!

What are others doing to enclose the wiring where it attaches to the heating element? Anything
working better than a 2 gang outlet box with a hole punched in it?
Posted in thread: Anyone use JB Weld? on 03-05-2013 at 05:53 PM
So I think that the hole for my heating element is just a bit too big. When I put in the
element, there is some play between the threads and the hole. I can get it to be leak proof
sometimes but other...

Since my PWM will only allow a duty cycle of between 10-90% I wanted to have a way to run my
element full on (100%) while I'm bringing the wort to boil. So there is that little switch in
the middle. S...

So this is my second time reading this thread I have all my parts ordered to make Walker's PWM
just needed some quick info on one thing regarding the 30a switch. Am I looking for a 4 pin
switch? Will ...
