I got from another company because I never saw this thread but, your prices are great. And these Qds are AMAZING!!! I switched everything to all 1/2" ID by using 1/2" SS elbows and nipples with one side grinded off to act as a barb. It makes pump work soo much better!

Glad I found this thread... making a list of parts that I need to complete my new brew stand (thanks to pinupbrewery's awesome sale) and will be ordering a full compliment of these (and other SS goodies) from you very soon!

As for including the silicone gasket by default, I'm all for it as it would save me $4.

Sorry, I misread what you posted. It'd still save me a few bucks as I probably wouldn't buy the replacement gaskets.

Just a heads up for others considering using the street elbows that don't have access to a grinder...

I was able to stretch 1/2" silicone tubing over the threaded part of the elbow, without grinding. It did, however, require some hot/boiling water, gloves and cursing. If you have access to a bench grinder, that would be the way to go. If you don't, however, it can be done. I used hose clamps because there were some that I wasn't able to stretch far enough over the threads to feel comfortable. I've used them on 2 sessions so far and no leaks. The threads did eat up the silicone a bit, but I don't think it's an issue since they are pretty much on there for good.

You don't need a bench grinder. A 4" grinder and a vise to hold the fitting would work.

Use eye protection either way. Those threads are going to go somewhere.

The one thing about not grinding threads down I would think would be it would slice the interior of the tubing? Maybe not though.
