Are you planing to put an air gap between the frame and your Pots, Kettles or Kegs?

Sorry the photo is sideways....
I'm contemplating it but I haven't decided yet.

nice stand you got yourself there...envy is not a great look on my but damnit i want it. mine is sort of the same only 1x1x1/8 steel. the burners are the regular bayou classics and i couldnt drive a tank over it.

just out of curiousity...i dont know if it was covered, but i used a mig style welder...actually it was flux core wire instead of using the gas...that looks an awful lot like tig welding...either that or i really do suck at welding.

on a final note, im not sure about wearing out the saw...i havent heard anything like that but since im not a professional i suppose i cannot exactly say one way or the other...what i do know is that i have a craftsman 9'' compound sliding miter saw that is about 20yrs old and has cut all kinds of metal, including all the cutting for my stand...with the help of a 10.00 harbour freight metal blade...and it still works like a champ.

Thanks. I'm by no means a professional welder. It's a MIG with the gas conversion. Trust me, that can make an amateur welder like me look pretty good. Slag, spatter, blow through, crust all pretty much gone due to the shielding gas.
Making little "o" or cursive "e" is the trick to giving it that TIG look.

Subscribed...great looking build so far.

I have been looking at builds for several months now, planning my own and taking ideas from a ton of people.

May I request that when it comes time to mount your burners that you include some up close shots. That is one thing that I haven't figured out yet in my own plans. Cheers...wnc

Thanks.
For mounting the burners, I used the heat shields. I drilled holes for the supplied burner screws at the bottom of the shield and mounted the burner to the shield. I then drilled and tapped (4) 10-32 holes on the 45º gussets. The burner/heat shield assembly is then mounted to the stand with (4) 10-32 stainless steel cap screws and washers.


Hope this helped.

That's a super clean looking mount. I like the jig you made for bending the SS.

Only concern I have is where is the burner exhaust going?

Thanks to Sea1961, I'm going to add Stainless spacers at the top to help exhaust and protect the paint.
