I am going to weld on a 2" coupling and just attach one of these things:

I am not sure if i am going to have the cord removable, I probably wont know until i receive this adapter exactly how it works.

The pricing on the still dragon element holder is pretty good. Wish I had seen this sooner.

Nuetrik has a whole line of "speak on" type connectors that are designed for power connections.

I used the powerCON 20A for my pumps. With the 2 diff colors, I know which is pump one & two.

That thing looks a lot like what I built for my kettle last year. Hmmm...

You're going to need to weld a ferrule to your kettle to use that thing, not a coupling. Permanently attach a cord to your element/kettle. Coil it up when not in use.

How do these look? How do they compare to the Brewershardware element adapters?

When I used to DJ, we used Neutrik Speakon connectors almost exclusively for sound, but did have a lighting rig or two that used them for power. It wasn't very common though, and it was always a custom rig someone wired up with connectors laying around the shop. Lighting was almost always with a standard power connector.

I found these connectors at Mouser Electric, they are pretty compact and are rated for 250v 30A.
