Default My new 3/4 ton brewstand...



I may have been exaggerating. It's realistically around the 200# mark. But due to my lack of garage, I would like to get some wheels on it, preferably something I can roll across the grass. It's constructed of 2" square tube steel. I have no idea what kind of wheels I'm looking for, where I would find them, or how I would mount them on my stand. Some experienced builders...HELP!

I knew that I love EdWort for a reason...that's about $30 cheaper than all the other ones I had found...

A coat of paint wouldn't hurt either. I can see the whole thing washing down the driveway one partical of rust at a time ;-)

I'm continually amazed at the level of overengineering going into most steel brewstands. 1" tube would still be overkill. I know, it looks cool.

Prolly be easier to scrap the dingy in the back and bolt that bohemoth to the trailer.

Turn those spotlight around and call yourself "Red Light Brewing".

You might want to look for some wheels that have brakes/locks on them so when you lean up against it, it doesn't take off down the driveway and smash into that fine boat of yours - unless you are looking for an excuse to upgrade that too.
