Default The Brutus Lite

Went outside of the box, and did mine in Aluminum.
Of course I'm not done, and needs lots of clean up, but though I'd give you guys a peek.
Frame is 2" .125" wall 6061.
The cross members are 1" x 3" .125" wall.
The top is 6061 1/4" diamond plate.

I wanted to show more of the welds but my wife's camera is a POS, and all but the ones posted came out blurry.

I'm planning on decking the bottom in diamond plate also to create another shelf.
This will be for a HERMS system. Got any other advice for add-ons?

This may sound stupid, but how do you insert text between photos?

Wow, great welds! Looks like you've done this before...

To insert text, just type between the links.

Those are some beautiful welds, I have never made any aluminum welds that look close to that . Not even when using mig/pulse. Again, well done!

Nice Job. It's gonna be pretty easy to move that around. You could probably pick it up, put it in the truck, and go brew wherever you want, like my house.

Thanks on the compliments.
The welds were made with my killer brand spankin' new Dynasty 700.

Sorry, but I have edited the rest of this post. Didn't like how I came off as a pretentious.

My boss asked me how I liked the new welder.

I told him the welder was so good it makes me look like I'm a better welder than I actually am.
The welder really is that good.
For $16,000 retail that unit (Dynasty 700) should be able to pour you a pint and wipe you backside. It is truly amazing the capabilities of today's power sources and how packed into such a compact packages.

Thats a great looking stand, you've gotta post some pics from the first brew-day with it.

Very nice! I bet the weight is much less than a steel or wood stand. They really do get heavy.

Looking great! What is that dial on the outlet box attached to the keggle? Infinite switch?
