I found a bunch in a scrap yard that was on heavy duty electrical cord so I pulled off as much as I could, it's about 1.125" diameter. I've been making them custom for people locally and everyone loves them because they don't dent or crush and it is course enough you don't get stuck sparges.

I used angle grinder with 0.04" (1mm) wheel.
Dip tube is centered in keg coupler with copper reducer:



This is how it looks from bottom:



My mill gap is 0.034" and I don't have any problems with circulation on HERMS. Maybe I"ll try to tighten it more just to see how far it can go.

Nice set up. I am building one but was not sure about the ss hose. Does it work great? Also do you every thermometer bend yours?
