Yes I did it myself. I had the tool made. I posted about it a few posts above...

*** Note ***

StillDragon are currently advising that as a safety precaution you should use a high pressure triclamp (which seals using 2 nuts rather than a single wing nut) with the element housing, so that the electrical connections cannot be accessed by accident.

I missed your post on the tool to make the dimple.
I printed it out, and see to add a bit towards the diameter.
I am going to wait for my 2" ferrules to arrive in the mail before I have the tool made.

Where did you get the 2" fitting to solder in. Brewhardware has the weld spuds for soldering but they NPT. I wounder if there is a SPUD for TC fittings we could use to make it easier and not have to "dimple".

I got it locally, its a regular short ferrule. I did the dimpling method, I have never seen a spud and given what would likely be the cost for any obscure TC part, its probably not feasible.

I am holding off on my dimple and solder of the 2"
I still have no response from Stilldragon on my order for housings...Going on three weeks now. Not sure if this is typical operation for them.

Get back in touch and ask for an update. I think this is a one off - the Stilldragon agent in the USA had a few days off recently for personal reasons.

Stilldragon are not the fastest outfit around, but it is a nice product.
