Know there are many of these but I wanted to document my own and get some advice along the way.

I bought the steel from lowes.

Attachment 42186

Used a miter saw with a metal blade to cut the steel.

Attachment 42187

Put it together using a thread on here, I didn't use the steel plates in the corners yet (I sat on it and moved around with no problems so I might not)

Attachment 42188

Found a easy and cheap low pressure manifold that I liked on here.

Waiting on parts/money now, I'll updated as I go.

Looks great so far!

That's a great idea! How much did the steel bars cost if you don't mind me asking?

I wish I could take credit but not my idea, I spent about 200 on the steel.

Nice. You're ahead of me with the pump!!!

You would have saved some $ by ordering the steel from McMaster... even with shipping, but either way, looking good so far. Mine is similar, with an identical gas manifold. I have run 7 brew sessions on it in 2011, and so far so good! I was thinking about painting mine, but not sure how it would hold up to scratching and burnt wort.

What's the ballpark cost for the steel on one of these bad boys?

True but I didn't want to wait for it to come in...I was way to excited to get going! But it looks like I would have saved 40 bucks before shipping, not sure how much shipping would have been. I like your pump setup, probably going to be using that.

Just priced this at mcmaster.com for 6 pieces of 2 1/4 inch by 6 ft and 3 pieces of 1 inch by 6ft, before shipping is 113.79
