Alright, I'm at a loss. Can't get the damn compression fitting ferrules to clamp onto the coil. Any advice? I'm using big wrenches and torquing as hard as I can with no luck.

Outlet is going in soon, need to mount the pumps and the chiller to the stand but I'm awful close to testing.

Yeah, that's my old Ural Tourist. I sold it a few months back, fun bike but a lot of upkeep and I never rode the thing. Replaced it with an 08 Yamaha WR250R which has been a hoot.

The 2014 Urals are supposed to all be fuel injected, once they work out those kinks I may buy another, the sidecar was a blast to own.

Yep, I've done the sous vide several times, as well as water bath canning for my wife. Because I do BIAB I have a steamer/strainer insert I use that keeps everything above the element

More updates, buttoning up the build portion:

240V plus a pair of 120's for whatever else needs plugged in (laptop, TV, etc.):



The thoroughly enthralling task of calibrating/stickering the site gauges:



Kettles and panel moved to their new home:



Anyone have a guess at the weight of the HLT with the coil and all the fittings (no water)? It's a beast.
