No offense, but this is still the #1 most useful thread on HBT!

Where are you guys finding $20/stick of this stuff?

Both hd and lowes have it for $20 per 10' length . It's in the electrical isle. They are just very limited and expensive on fasteners .

Guys its less then $20 a stick. If you are a vet its 10% off.

Got both burners attached to my rig. Hopefully if I can get my step bits in the mail soon I can finish up my HLT and be good to go.

I dig the 4-switch DJ switch panel. I have the 8-switch version (but only use 4). I think I may have commented on your hinged chiller before...it is coool

Got to use my stand for yesterday's brew. I had finished putting the frame together last weekend, and stood it on end in the basement, for storing while I collect more parts. I realized that it would work great as a vertical tower for my Gravity-fed Coolers. Added a couple crossbeams and it worked Awesome!

Thanks! I got the idea from you on another thread. The chiller doesn't move in as far as it did before I mounted the burners. I may fins another spot for it.

Super nice build! Nice job on polishing the keggles too. You should probably rotate your pump heads 190* though:

Thanks a lot. I gave up on the mirror finish for the keggles and went for the brushed look haha . I read your thread and it makes perfect sense about the air pocket . I did have some troubles with air in my lines . The instructions for chugger said the head could be rotated for which direction you were running your plumbing . I changed the order of my kegs and rotated the heads back to factory setting. I'm brewing this Friday so I will give it a try . I'm sure it will help . Thanks for the advice .

Also grant I think I may have seen a 3 tier system in this thread but can't remember . Did you have any luck or figure out a plan for a 3 tier using strut?
