If your considering going weldless have you looked at silver soldering? (is this an electric or gas build?) There's a huge thread sticky in the DIY forum with more info.

It will be a gas build at least to begin with, I've looked into silver soldering, but I'd really like to have them welded.

Got all my welds completed and couldn't be happier, I'll post the pics as soon as I get them off my phone. Thanks to everyone who posted a response to my questions, the advice I received was and is greatly appreciated. I ended up taking a little more time and found a custom fabrication company to back flush and weld them for me.

I just had this welded the other day. How does it look to you guys??
My main worry is the little gap on the inside of the ferrule. This is my book kettle so maybe I'm worrying over nothing? Should I leave it out have someone fill the little seam?

The first 2 pics are the inside of the 2" tri clamp ferrule
