    Has anybody here tried these?

    They look like a good design to me, would like to upgrade my existing bulkheads to something without any "wiggle", always wondering when the ones I have are going to start leaking, took about 4 tries to get them to seal in the first place.

    Figured I'd look into upgrading some fittings as long as I'm redesigning my system(could take longer than I originally planned, but I know where I'm going with it and that big bag of Avantgard I just bought can wait until the system is right).

    I’ve had one for my HLT and it’s done almost 50 brews to date and not a hint of a leak. Get yourself a good step bit drill bit and put a dab of dawn/dish soap on where you’ll be drilling (use a center punch to keep the bit in place when starting), the soap will keep the bit cool while cutting.

    I agree with @thunderwagn that you want to get top notch parts.

    here’s a couple pics of my HLT with the weldless bulkhead.
