Thanks Marshall . I got the gas pipe and valves screwed together . My best friend is a master plumber I'm having him come over and check it out before I fit it . I think it's good but I'd rather be safe when dealing with gas

I like how you bolted yours together better than I did mine. May have to switch mine. Did you polish your kegs? I was going to but I decided against it.

I keep looking at this thread. My local Home Depot is 1.5mi away and they stock two types of strut and the last time I looked there was a selection of brackets. I just don't know which ones to buy to start assembling. I guess the best thing to do is cut the pieces and then buy the brackets to assemble. I just really hate making multiple trips even it is only a 3mi round trip

I had a hard time getting the right brackets locally. The selection was limited and the parts were pretty sparce. HD/Lowes prices were pretty high for the brackets, bolts, and nuts.

I'd recommend getting brackets from http://www.strutchannelfittings.com. The shipping is free, the selection is fantastic, and the customer service is great. One of my shipments disappeared in transit. They sent out a replacement immediately, no questions asked. It never took more than 2 days to get my order.

Yep, agree, those guys rock! I ordered some of the wrong brackets and they not only refunded me but paid for the return shipping! I also wanted solid strut and got that from them as well. They'll even cut your pieces to length for no charge if you want.

Yea I polished my kegs but I did not want a mirror finish I just wanted them to be easier to clean .

+1 to strut channel fittings . They have everything you need plus at a fraction of the price of hd or lowes . I did buy my lengths of strut from lowes though . I couldn't see having 50' of strut shipped .

I would totally agree with b-boy, lpdjshaw, and drewski.

I bought the strut channel from HD, but all the other fittings at the recommended site.

I drew out my design (just a rough sketch) to get an idea of the fittings I would need. I used the part numbers posted by the thread author. I ordered bolts, nuts, and washers in bulk packets. I received more than i needed, but it was also cheaper than ordering the exact amount needed. That put me well on my way for gathering the parts.

Good luck on your build.

Mark
