Looks like it's gonna be a whole lot more fun to clean than my 120 qt Coleman.

Radical and Northcal,
those are pillow blocks, i got them off amazon for 12 bucks and cut them down. Basically just large bearings. I'm not concerned about them not being oiled. I just want them to spin so I can tip my mash tun over and dump my spent grains into a trash can. They system is highly over engineered so can move up to 55 gal tanks at some point.

Posterguy, you can't expect it to be easy to clean. That's why I am going with spray balls in every tank and a 60+psi pump at the bottom of the stand. Makes for easy cleaning after the mash tun is empty

The parts list is almost non existent because of how expensive and how many connections there are, when I get done with some stuff I will start.
