I'm on vacation this week but the machine shop should have the tooling made by the time I get back. I have (40) 1" couplers that we'll have machined off the bat which should last us for some initial orders. I'll keep everyone posted!
I just received my 10 gallon kettle with 2 vertical couplings and I had another added for a sight tube. Looks great, nice sturdy quality product and I'm very pleased.
Now I see this post and wish I would have waited and added the coupling for the element too. Would it be possible to get it added to my kettle through you guys. I'm in Sheboygan so wouldn't be a far drive to bring it down to Milwaukee. Let me know if this could be possible or if interested.
