Did anyone that ordered one of these after seeing this thread get theirs yet?

I haven't ordered, but see that you ordered prior to 29 December. Does this mean that you haven't yet received yours?

I like my kettle ball valves oriented 90 degrees counter-clockwise from yours. Depending on the burner setup, it is possible/likely that the rubber material on the valve handle will scorch and melt -- mine did on my first generation kettle. With the valves rotated, the handle points skyward when the valve is closed during the boil, protecting it from scorching. Just a random observation -- the kettles look great and you've got one hell of a price on 'em. Good luck!

We are running behind on orders from the holidays. We switched from soldering the couplers on back to welding them on. There's been all sorts of delays and I'm disappointed in how long it's taking. I appreciate all the patience my customers are giving me.

I respond to all emails. Check your spam folder maybe? Or feel free to ask them on here.
