Well again, mine works great, it was just kind of a miserable material to work with. I told myself I'd paint it one day, but I'd rather brew

Non fail! I like the proximity to the wash tub! Doesn't have to be pretty if it makes good beer!! Paint!??! Really!

the HERMS was easy since i had an IC already (which i've now switched to a cfc, more $$$ )

cutting the stand down didn't cost me anything, but it took a lot of TIME.
Interested in selling your propane stuff? PM me details if you are. Pics would be nice as well.

I built a gravity-fed 3-tier system. In this picture, you'll notice the MLT is perpendicular to the BK burner. When I was running the burner on high, it melted my MLT.

I've since moved it to the opposite side of the central post.

Also, when I upgraded to a banjo burner and a 15 gallon BK, the extra heat started the stand on fire. I had to knock off the chocks at the base of the BK shelf and slide the burner outward to get enough airflow back there.
