They thread in nicely. I weld them because some day the cap will seize due to heating, cooling and general rust and unscrew nipple. I am going to post other options in a link from thread. Swamp , Bub, WHO are contributing to info. I want to make a clean flowing tutorial on basic build with links to alternative methods.

Actually a spot weld or a simple braise is all that is needed. It is not to seal, just keep from backing out. I weld because I can. Matter of a fact i owe a lot of Brethren for their votes that won me a Miller welder.

Got to cook for girl scouts plus work so may not add much this weekend. Oh wait MIL in the house, I can snooze at work.
