I'm building Kal's e-brewery and ran into a snag.
Was planning on punching my keg holes for the elements this weekend but when I did a test-punch on another piece of metal, the 1 1/4" Greenlee made a hole that is larger than the entire element bracket (1 11/16"). Isn't it supposed to be just barely large enough for the threads to fit through and then push against the black rubber part?
Also, even though I bought Camco 02963 elements on Amazon, the actual element is stamped "02962" 240v 5500w I can't find anything on Google about a Camco 02962 but wondering if it is a different thread size.
When you punched your keggles, what size hole punch did you use? How much space was there around the threads? Did you use a Greenlee 1 1/4" punch or am I supposed to know that a 1 1/4" punch makes a significantly larger hole??
Most importantly, does anyone have an idea for a workaround (washer?) to mount my elements using this size hole?
