Well, then you shouldn't have a problem so long as it's on a solid axle. You might have to buy a precision ground shaft to use if you can't find one that is a thousandth under sized or if you have a machinist buddy, have them make one for you.

It won't be solid, it will be modeled after the morebeer design where there is a shaft welded to each side of the ring the supports the kettle.

Who's idea was it to make a tippy dump on this thing?!?!?! ME!! I'm going to kick my own @ss soon for being an idiot. This part is taking me longer than it did to weld the whole stand!! What a PITA!

I'll be out of town all weekend. I'lll have more updates on Monday evening.

Yeah, bet it is a headache, but once it is done and you are several batches in I imagine you will be glad you did it. I know I would not enjoy manually scooping out 1 barrels worth of spent grains from one of those kettles.

Keep us posted, this is a pretty cool build and I would like to see how it all goes.

Good luck!
John

I am in the same boat: trying to design a tippy for a 42 gal barrel mash, so I will be following with interest

Not a whole lot to report. However my Brother in law mentioned he thinks the panel is too small to fit everything in. So... I am running the idea off him of running a sub panel to put the contactors in. If that doesn't work, I need to redo the control panel... ;-(

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

haha it would be. However I'm trying to stop the bleedout of money on this project! Going to see if I can do a subpanel with the contactors in.
