Sow me your pump/plate chiller stand
 
I am trying to get some ideas for a pump/ plate chiller stand. I do not have a brew stand only a single burner, so im looking for something free standing.
thanks

I don't have either of these items yet but am interested in your post. These are probably the next two upgrades to my system. I was thinking of like a skateboard style setup - mount both to a watersealed board with wheels on the bottom. Could be cool...

funny, i was thinking the same thing, HD has small dollys for like $10. Maybe a box type set up and have the pump mounted to the side and the plate chiller and thrumeter on top.

I posted this exact same thread a month or two ago. Here's what I did

That is a great idea!
I have a platform I threw together out of some scrap wood and I am not all that happy with it.
It works, but takes up way too much room for storage.
Can you show me the bottom of this little beauty?
I want to know how you mounted the pump and chiller to the PVC.

So I stole the idea from sabco. Check it out on their website. I never quite finished it cause I needed to use it. The pump is zip tied to the PVC. The chiller isn't attached to anything except the fittings.

ok, i was wandering around home depot and i came across this for $20. i can bolt the plate chiller to one side and the pump to the bottom of the the other side (where the 2x4 is) to counter balance and run the line through the middle. i even have some casters i can bolt to the bottom. what doy you all think? i think it is a cleaner look than the wooden scraps.

Here you go. Like I said I didn't really official finish
