Default floor material

I realize this is an old thread, but n2fooz, I was wondering if you could tell me what material and gauge you used for the sheet metal "floor" on your stand. Is that stainless steel?

Got the square tubing cut for my stand (2"x2"x.083") yesterday. After cutting all that with the h/v bandsaw I'm not going to use that for the gussets. I will be getting an order of 1.5"x.125" angle iron later this week. I'll simply cut the gussets from that. I'll just position them as needed to mount the burners. At this point I'll transplant my two Blichmann burners over, leaving the third slot open (for now). I have a bucket heater that I can try and use to get the sparge water up to temp (in a keggle HLT, to be made).

Gadams, sorry I didn't see this post. The floor is 1/4" aluminum sheet that I had leftover from another project.

I'm going to see what the steel mill has for drops that I could use for the floor. Going there tomorrow, or Friday, to get the angle iron and maybe some expanded steel sheet.

Thanks guys. Here it is in action from Tuesday's 10gal Hoegaarden clone brew. Screwed up and used 2oz of bittering hops instead of 1oz. It's supposed to be around 13 IBU but probably will be 26. Probably won't be a big deal but I wanted this batch to be perfect.

Default progress

Here's how my stand is going...

First day's progress:


While test fitting the gussets (as I cut them) I discovered I had placed one of the 12.5" pieces 2" too close to the end (one at the bottom of the picture). DOH!! So, I cut it out, ground the weld off, cut a new section and welded that in position. Also after the first day, I welded the wheels in place. These are rated at somewhere in the 250-350# range [each]. So more than enough support. Plus, they have real ball bearings, grease fittings, and you can SEE the bearings and grease in there.



Gussets tacked into position:


Test fitting my Blichmann burners:


Need to move one of the gussets in the middle position to get the second burner in place. I'll remove it, then clamp the burner in position while getting the gusset in place. I'll then check the third position to make sure a burner will fit there. I'm using 1-1/2" angle iron for the gussets (1/8" thick). Since they only need to hold the burners in position, I didn't see any reason to not use that. Plus, it will be easier to bolt the burners into position with angle iron than trying to do it with square tubing.

Next up is putting the [two] pumps in position, as well as making the mount for the plate chiller. Still haven't decided where I'll put the switches for the pumps.

I figure my investment, so far, in the stand is maybe $125-$150 (not counting time).
