BARGAIN - Herms kettle custom made £30

Post by Eclipse9101 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:18 pm

Here I have a kettle I have turned into a mini Herms pot.
It works extremely well when I have used it with my pic.
It comes with the kettle base bit it needs a plug attaching. 1/2" BSP compression fittings on the inlet and outlet. I can post or collection is welcome from near Preston.

£30

Thanks for looking. :)

Whats the kettle brand and age? and how many meters of copper tube?? special tube size? Are you including the delivery in the price too?

tbh it looks like about a tenners worth of bits (2m or less of 10mm copper tube and 2 x compression fittings bought retail) in a £5 tesco kettle, well built but generally 2nd use diy kit sells for closer to the materials cost. And a Bargain would be priced at less than what you could build yourself.

If im shooting wide and its something else ive missed please fill in the blanks..

I've priced it based on the fact it's a unique one off that is custom made. I realise not everyone is capable or daring enough to attempt things like this themselves. It has been used literally once. The length of tubing is absolutely fine when the kettle it controlled by a PID. The small amount of water in the kettle means it's extremely fast to respond and can ramp up temp extremely fast.

Without devaluing the time effort and skills put into the build, they generally dont play part of the value of 2nd use brew kit. so perhaps your being a little optimistic for a sale within the brew-community ebay perhaps?

just my take tho, but could perhaps suggest the lack of interest.

No problem. I was not sure of the price exactly as I built a 6 litre stainless Herms which is why this isn't in use anymore and that cost me over £100 in parts alone. But I realise this isn't the same thing. I guessb£25 is a more realistic price if anyone would like it.
