Default The Great Angle Iron Single Tier

This is my first post with pictures, so bear with me... Anyway I recently finished welding my single tier. No gas plumbing, no burners, just steel and 4 casters. That being said, i just couldn't resist throwing my boil keggle, new mash tun and hlt on top so I could snap a few pics... First ones just the standard front side shot, second one is showing the width of the angle iron relative to a drivers license, and the third, well it just reminded me of bozo buckets...ha

That is a stout looking frame. It looks like you could moor a oil tanker to it. I'm jealous.

Yeah, i was a little worried about not having any supports on it, but after having three grown men stand on it, i figured she should be fine. I guess we'll see what happens when I add heat...

This update is gonna be kinda pic heavy, so i apologize. But here's an update on my finished keggles (minus diptubes) and my finally mounted burners. All that left now is to mount the plate chiller and pump and I'm off to the races!

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You're stand looks great, but you're avatar makes it that much better. Trailer park boys rock! It's the weirdest funniest show ever. I'm pretty sure if they build a brew stand it would look like yours.

I was going to say that when I saw that picture.

That weld looks a little cold.

Are you sure that you got good penetration?? I'm trying to insult your welding skills. I just want to make sure that it's safe.

That looks like the angle we use at work to shore up bridges. I think were talking tons not pounds capability, nice work.

Keggles look great as well...reminds of my brothers bunk bed / study loft project in college, thing could of carried freight trains...loaded!
