Default Built a RIMS tube with a SS electrical box... Oh yeah

Got the plumbing Hardware from Bobby M at BrewHardware.com Great deal and fast shipping.
Gave the center tube a polish, and put some serious thought and effort into the electrical box.
Got the SS box tubing from onlinemetals.com. They happen to be right down the street from my work.
Everything you see is stainless except the waterproof strain relief (it's aluminum) and the cord.
I also made a second electrical box for the HLT.
Can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

Awesome. I am looking to do the exact same thing. What is the part or part number so I can find it and place an order? Also, what element did you end up using? Many thanks. Louis

Great looking RIMS tube. The best thing about that tube is you can take it apart for cleaning. Mine is a solid 1-piece tube and while it looks cool, cleaning it is not so cool. I'm with lgxg, what element did you use?

The strain relief? Its a Grainger 2ddg7: http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/eca...rue&sst=subset
I used a 5500 watt LWD 240 volt Incoloy fold back from HD: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Camco-550...7#.UU0jzhesiSo

I'm not sure It's in the picture, but is your temperature probe going to go on the opposite side to the eating elements plug? Is there a thermowell there?
