My slotted angle steel order from McMaster-Carr arrived yesterday!

Overall, I am pleased with McMaster-Carr. I ordered the steel on Tuesday and it arrived on Thursday! The cost has gone up slightly from when this thread was originally created. Also, there is one annoying issue with McMaster-Carr that should be mentioned. The shipping cost was a complete mystery until after I placed and received my order. Below is the receipt I received by email this morning. Fortunately, the shipping cost turned out to be the $25 that someone else on this thread said it was for him.

2 each 8968K26 1-1/2" X 1-1/2", 6’ length__17.32
6 each 4664T65 2-1/4" X 1-1/2", 6’ length__78.06
16 each 4664T22 Steel Corner Plate, 6"x 6"_38.56
2 packs 4664T61 Bolts W/nuts & Washers__14.84

________________________Merchandise__148.78
___________________________Shipping___25.13
_____________________________Total_$173.91

I already have casters, so I didn't need to order them. I'll start cutting it up tonight using the cheap angle grinder I picked up at Harbor Freight. Hopefully that will work for me. I'll post pics of the process later.

Started cutting up my steel last night.






By 1:00am I had it completely assembled!
Now just need to buy extra washers and tighten all the bolts!

Why is it necessary to have the valve there on the corner of the stand that kills the gas to all three burners? Couldn't you just kill it at the regulator if you needed to shut off all three? Also, if you light the first burner first, does it create problems lighting two and three? Is it advantageous to light first the 3rd burner, then the 2nd then the 1st or doesn't it matter? thanks.

That's just a safety feature for me, my tank is about 12 feet away. I always light the first burner "first" just because that is my HLT. In testing it didnt matter which i lit first they all worked just fine separatly or all together. I think it is the needle valves that make this a sweet setup.

Got my burners installed and tightened down the manifold last night. Tonight I will probably haul it out of my basement to fire up the burners and test it out!

I plan on attaching some concrete backer board in the middle section to shield my cooler mash tun from the heat. I also need to construct a drip shield for my pump. After that I will be ready to brew!

Other than that, I will add switch for the pump and paint the stand.
