Nice work!

I like the angle iron kettle keepers. I was thinking of building a rail, but that looks pretty good.

Use square tubing inserts. I'm using the McMaster Carr part number 60945 K31 -- Load-Rated Tube Adapter, 1/2" - 13 thread, 2 inch square, nylon, for 12 and 11 gage wall.

Be sure to get 1/2 inch - 13 threaded stem castors. There are a bunch of options from McMaster Carr, but you might find suitable ones locally too.

I am considering foregoing the manifold beam in favor of a plumbed system using tubing strapped to the the lower rear beam. I was wondering if I can go 1/2" for the entire gas system or if I need to go larger for the main line. I will be using low pressure LP gas, standing pilots, and Asco 8210 valves as per Lonnie's specs.

Thanks
KD

1/2" pipe should be more than enough. That's what most people use when they put together their plumbing for their brew stand. I've actually got 3/8" plumbing on my current stand and haven't had any problems. My new stand is getting 1/2" though - just easier to find what you need. I'm almost done with it and should be able to break it in next weekend.

Default Parts List

Hey guys
Does anybody have a copy of the BYO article or the parts list therefrom scanned? I gave my copy of the mag to my welder without copying it. Thanks and sorry for the trouble.
