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.

Never mind, some strong arming and it looks to have sealed .

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.
