Sorry it took me so long to answer, and I'm merely replying, not answering, because I have no idea of the answer - been deployed since January so I don't have access to my gear to take measurements.
I bought the MLT from midwest already assembled, as I could not find any 10 gal bev coolers local at the time and it was the same price to just buy their's already put together... that might help with the specs you're asking about. I've since built a RIMS to go with it (not used on the batch in this thread) and added a few other bells and whistles from bargain fittings (an analog thermometer and a return fitting for the RIMS). I think I brewed with it twice more before I moved and deployed... I have a lot of brewing to do when I get back next year!
