Default Bargain Fittings is AWESOME, here is why.

This is what Wayne helped me build...

I used his weldless bulkheads and his electric element lock nuts and seals... beautful

NO leaks, sealed perfectly the FIRST time! Thanks Wayne and Bargain Fittings!

The end product:

Yeah, but the valves are only stainless. You put all the money into this thing, at least go platinum on the valves... minimum.

The coil was (2) hours of agony... cutting, installing fittings, lining up the fittings on what amounts to a large spring...

The kettles were easy to drill, but I spent about 2 hours just LOCATING the holes on the BK. I am taking detailed notes, so if I build this again, I will have the measurements to save some time!

I am pleased with how it turned out

What are all those things? I've heard mention of "tri-clamp" fittings...what is that...what does that do? Are those tri-clamp? There is a ton of hardware...what are the 4 bolts on the outside of the bulkhead? Everything I've seen looks like this:



I mean...that looks insanely awesome, but ridiculously foreign at the same time.

How many bucks does that finished product cost by chance?
