My 1.5 Triclover element cover is being delivered today. I called a local weld shop about estimated cost for welding the triclover on my pot and they guy said $50.

maybe I should have gone the silver solder option.

On one of my pots I dimpled and soldered a short 1.5" ferrule for a heating element. Comes out clean and solid.

I just dropped off my Keggles today at a welder to weld a total of 7 fittings between the two Keggles. He charges $80 for the first 3 fittings per pot and $20 dollars per fitting after that. so I am looking at roughly $180 works out to $26 per fitting which I have heard anywhere between $25-$35 per fitting is standard. so $50 is a little high

DePends where you live. I got quoted $125 for two fittings here. Then again welders get paid $40 - $50 an hour around here. ..

I'll probably be beating that ETA by a few days.
