Mines packed away up in the loft, I can punch it out at work on a cnc punch, going to use 1.2mm stainless steel and punch a perpendicular pattern of 1.5mm wide x 12mm slots
How important is a beer line seal around the outer diameter

Good idea that. Something to think about when i upgrade my system

a 1/2" Barrel nipple is the ideal length to feed from a drain elbow through the skirt and attach a 1/2" ball valve to
And lets you use simple line of eye marking up
however when considering tipping a large SS mashtun remember the valve is protruding so will require tipping on the edge of its platform/table.. A bit of rubber or silicone sheet is useful as a grip enhancer if tipping on the edge of a shiny slippy surface. even though you dont need much of a tip, and something like a 3" high wedge is more than ample to stuff under the back base lip to maintain the tip
must admit i keep considering an auto tilt platform along the lines of a sprung cask tilter .. One day perhaps
