Yea it's way overkill , I just made it with some of the steel scraps in my garage..... .250 is the smallest stuff I generally have....More forgiving on the heat warping so fine with me....hehe
I decided to unleash 'The Destroyer' on the keg.
What's 'The Destroyer' you ask ?
Let me tell you , this is one of the nastiest, most dangerous tools around.A grinder powered wire brush is the ultimate 'stripping' tool....It's fully capable of stripping threads right off screws......
Here's the test patch ;
Clean keg ;
I've started the Lexan siliconing ;
2 sides on ;
I was at the scrapyard today , I finally found my seal ring ;
This gets welded onto the inner tank , about 4 inches from the top.....it provides support as well as a sealing surface.
Very interesting rods.....fast set......stringer only type rods.....
I did reasonably well considering I've never used em before , and this is mild steel to 316l stainless......All I really need is decent tacks.....silicone does the seal...managed to get some good results ;
The tackweld on the right is perfect......the one on the left is crap......that's me learning.....
These rods actually do amazing 'gap fills' too ; This is a 1/4" gap :
I think these rods might be worth the buck-an-inch......I'm impressed forsure !!
