See any problems with fitment with this on ~8-9 gallon tanks at 12.5"-12.75" diameter? I'm ready to order too....just not sure how many and if it'll fit.

and +1 on the solder kit!

Ok, solder kits in the works.

I'm still trying get a handle on which pot diameters will work. Of course, any radius is better than none. The flange has a 8" radius so when it's fit to a 13" diameter pot, the side gaps are less than 1/16". When you clamp it together and solder, it will hold no problem. I think 12" Diameter would be my limit on the low end and probably 20"D on the high end. I suppose you could make some mild modification to the radius on the flange with a grinding wheel if you're careful. It's probably not necessary because the kettle walls are plently flexible and they will clamp to the flange with no problem. The solder will hold it all together.

Ok, Bobby

You have just made this Soldier very happy.
Just make sure you have the weldless versions in stock in November, when I get back from this crappy sand box!

Awesome job giving us just what we wanted and asked for, your sir are my hero!

Are you going to be stocking the 1.5" triclover caps mentioned in the video? I don't see them on your site.

Yes, The page is live with the enclosures. There are full descriptions and cart buttons there but not the current pictures. I'm working on those now.

Bobby, have you decided if you are going to start selling solder kits yet?

Ok, I finally got all the pictures taken care of and figured out all the different configurations that are practical to offer. Of course I welcome and appreciate any feedback you guys and gals may have. The Harris soldering kits are on order and should be here early next week.

Here's what the solder-on assembly looks like all put together with a sample element installed. Of course, you'll get a lot more out of it once I finally get around to soldering one on in a video.
