Here is a link to the write up on how to build it.

The lazy way out is to order what you want from stainlessbrewing.com. This what I would have done if they were around back then.

Good luck!
AWESOME! Thanks. I thought of doing something like that. Now I don't have to think about it too hard.

See audger, that wasn't so hard and it was helpful too!

From my experience I have found its a lot easier if you have something to bend it around, When I made mine I used a short hunk of steel pipe I had laying around (it was probably a piece of 12 inch wide pipe) no idea why I had it or where it came from but it worked great I locked it in my vise and took one end of my tubing and locked it to the pipe with a pair of vice grips, obviously I just had ot sacrifice that few inches I smashed locking a pair of vice locks on it

Looks like a DIY 3 wheel on the vice.

Yep, 3 wheel pulley locked in a bench vice. Best way to go if you DIY and don't want to pay big money.
