I made some pump brackets to fit between the keggles (when stored). I'll be milling bolt slots in them to allow the pumps to slide forward during operation. I'll use some wing nuts to tighten them into place. The pumps will slide back and lock in when not in use so that they are not protruding from the face of the stand.



Ready for action...



Stowed away...





Here's a look at the whole stand as it is right now...

You guys with your well equipped garages really tick me off!!!

Great job though! Like the clear back box to show off your work as well. Controls are always fun, but one of the ways to really show off your project and make it stand out.

Thanks everyone!

Next up is finishing the pump mounts, stripping everything down for grinding/cleanup, and then painting.

Hopefully I'll be ready to do a H2O run through on it this weekend to work out any kinks!
