Hey l3asturd, I thought I might find you in here. I liked your demo the other weekend. Next time I have a keg to do, I might be asking you a few questions or pointers.

If you do, please let me know. I'm interested in 2 of the Stay-Brite #8 solder.

Thanks.

I'd love to buy 4-8 ozs of the S-B #8 from you as an entire spool would be more than a lifetime supply for me....but I completely understand if that's too much of a hassle.

Might be an odd way to do this, but here's my element mounting solder job. I used a single gang stainless plate. I punched a hole but to be honest they sell them with circles punched in them already, so it was dumb to punch my own. I did dimple with a larger version of "The Tool". I pulled the 1" half coupler through the faceplate and soldered, then pull the coupler/faceplate combo through my keg wall.and soldered.


Here's the finished product (besides the steel weatherproof enclosure, which will mount backwards.


Looks like I forgot to clean the inside Leak testing has begun!

Wow, heavy duty. Looks good - I can see how the silver soldering thing could become kind of addictive once you get the hang of it

Honestly it's a hobby in itself! I've been walking around looking for things to solder together! Haha. My fingers are all cut up and dead though. I ordered new fingers from China so they'll be here in a few weeks.

By the way, I wasn't planning on splitting the rolls up. I don't have a digital scale or anything so I'd have no idea how much to send.

I will sell a roll for almost half what the stores charge though. $40 a lb. if anyone wants one or 2 send me a pm. If not, I better start a silver soldering business so I can use these rolls up.

I don't get it by the pics. Why solder to a cover plate that has a threaded fitting? Did you solder fittings to your keg? I can't tell. Pretend you're water folks. Where are you going to squeeze through?

Two layers of protection. Keep water inside the keg and keep water away from electricity.
