I bought 95% of the stuff to build mine but am struggling to find the time to actually do it. Yet every time I brew I keep telling myself "I really need to get my stand going!"
Honestly I wasn't a fan of the conduit at first, but it's growing on me. Now that I've seen how functional it is and how easy it will be to add on things later/fix things, I'm sold. I'm pretty anal about clean lines and I really wanted this stand to scream "simplicity".
I haven't noticed anything loosening up when I swing the panel. I was more worried about heat with it being that close (no problems yet).
I bought the pieces as I went along, part of why it took so long to finish. If I were to do it again, I'd buy everything at once and build all in one shot. You'll love a stand though!
