It is threaded in and bumps up against a hi-temp rubber washer. Teflon tape on the threads. I think it is much more secure than some of the home engineered ones people have built. No offense to the very talented home engineers.

Ah, thanks for the answer. I was assuming that the female threaded portion was the case but couldn't tell from any of the pictures. Cheers!

A homebrewer on Kal's site was using these adapters and saying that they weren't waterproof, and a PITA to remove and undo the grounding screw. Have you had a test run with the element to see how waterproof they are?

Well we returned from Chicago this week and I finally got some more done on the panel. The biggest PITA so far was cutting the holes in the control panel for the outlets. I literally split it into two nights and used about 3oz of cutting oil. I only used the removable piece and there was not enough room for the temp outlets. I ended up putting them on the side of the box. I was able to get a bunch of scrap Stainless tubing from work and hopefully I will have time to break out the welder tomorrow and start building the stand. The march pumps and CF chiller arrived this week so I do not need much more to finish.

During our visit to Chicago I picked up the conical I bought on the classified here a couple of months ago and now I am motivated to get everything done to do the first batch.

Those pics should be on the 'how big should my panel be' thread, LOL... gives a great representation of what kind of space is needed on the outside, let alone the indside..

Default Stand

I finally got started on the stand today. I got a bunch of stainless tubing that had already been welded and used those to design a basic stand. My oldest Son was helping me cut the pieces. I had never welded stainless before but having not welded for several years I was pleased with how it turned out. I will be cutting the aluminum tomorrow so it will be on the top and the shelf. I will post pics once I have the pumps and CF chiller installed. Hopefully next weekend.

The last picture is why you where boots and not running shoes when working with steel that is heavy. I had welded the sides and had everything put together to ensure it was square when the side fell over and landed perfectly on my big toe.

That triclamp heating element looks awesome! I have to agree that having one of those on the boil kettle would be far easier for clean up. I might consider upgrading one of these days. I think it would be worth the extra cost to be able to just undo a TC and pull out the whole element so I can drag the pot to the sink for clean up.

Default tc element

Love the way the element looks with the tc. Can I ask where you got all the parts to do that??
