The two I ordered work great. I ended up buying a sheet of rubber gasket material to better seal my MLT. My kettle valve works flawlessly and is leak free thanks to thread tape and some good wrenches.

If you can source the O-rings and SS washers, you can make a cheaper valve from Home Depot materials.

I got an enameled steel pot I use for my brews. If I drill a hole for one of these fittings, will I ruin it?

You'll probably chip the heck out of the enamel so I'd say yes. bulkhead drains really only become necessary when the pot is too large to lift. Even then you can chill in place and siphon.
