i need to post the picture of the project so far, but I was able to take it on a maiden voyage this past weekend 11/14 and it worked great!!!

thanks to this forum for the inspiration! i used bed frames for the angle iron which was free so that makes it even more awesome!!:ban:

Good luck with the new rig!

Can't wait to get started on mine. I'm shooting for next summer. By then I'll be all thought out and plans made up. Nothing fancy, just can't decide what style I want yet.

I am doing this thing very low budget so it is taking a long time, plus i am in grad school and working a regular 9-5 job...recent acquisitions:

2 female 4 male SS QD's from bargainfitters.com (best customer service) $28
2nd burner with regulator-found used turkey fryer on CL for $10 with the kettle

can't wait to put it all together. (I know I am gonna need more QD's)

Now it looks like your making "good" meth. I get the meth thing all the time. Sorry, but tweekers couldent figure this stuff out if they tried.

I used to live with a tweeker I never baught so many VCR's in my life. I wouldnt mind, only none of the tattoo guns ever worked. :D

Nice I also have a Miller rubber keg which I'm using for the MLT. It works great especially with RIMS or HERMS. When I started building my single tier I wanted to keep the prices down but building a nice single tier is far from cheap.. I already have $2600 into my setup.

My suggestion with the rubber keg is to cut the handles off (pure rubber) and add a lid. It has worked for me..

I'd like to see more keep the photos coming!!

more progress:
hole for bottom drain
ball valve installed
not too sure about a bazooka screen sticking up like that, but it is secured.

going to use the immersion chiller as a HERMS. Not real pretty now but that is a project for another day.
I also was able to attach a second burner. YAY!
