Bobby M I think kept mentioning that having those supports in the center come perpendicular is just adding load to the center of the bottom rails without any casters under them to support it. I believe he said that angled pieces from the center to the corners, where the casters are, was the better idea.

Thoughts?

Hey threeporks. Stand looks amazing and I am researching do the same or other options but concerned about cost. What am I looking at if I go your direction and build?

I just ordered mine, along with my PID and standing pilot valve for my HLT, and various stuff to do a 1550 Brutus style build. Can't wait for it to all come together.

Diagonal braces are what you want.

My metal should arrive today, I am going with a full 6' length and increased the height to 26" which will give me about 29" with castors. I stayed with the 16.5" depth. I also plan on using HardiBoard on all the heat exposed kettle support pieces, it won't burn, should help protect the metal and won't absorb water...I will probably paint it anyway.

I also plan on making a control panel so I can transition to automation down the line.

Still waiting on my control panel mount to show up, and to polish the HLT.
