    Hi!
    I used a QMax cutter to make the hole in my SS HLT. It's sitting in my oddments drawer at the moment.
    If you would like to borrow it, send me a PM.
    I found that my tap (not Banggood) leaked slightly so I cut a washer out of a silicon cake "tin" and it no longer leaks.
    There are also cheaper ball valves ($16.98) on Banggood.

    Hi

    Thanks for the advice and the offer of the offer of the cutter. I am actually in two minds as to what to do as I saw a few decent stainless boilers in Macro today but I think they were excluding the lids which when added to the cost along with the valves cost I am not sure how much of a real saving it will be.
    Even more so as I just saw this.

    Saves the hassle I suppose.

    Thanks anyway, I will have a think.

    Cheers

    Pete
