I am in the process of collecting/building a brew stand.
I farted around in the garage tonight and here is what I ended up with.
These are the Northern Brewer
The diameter of these burners are 11 inches. I stopped by the metal supply store after work and they sheared 22 gauge flat sheet steel for me while I waited to the dimensions I wanted. 35" by 6"
This is actually the second shield I did. I marked everything out, cut the large hole in the center and then drilled my adjustment mounting holes.
Then rolled it over a corny.
Till I ended up with this...
Here it is finished..well kinda. My welder is out on loan to a car buddy at the moment. Once he is done with it, I will butt weld the joints.. As you will see in the pics that follow. These two burners diameters differ in size. The casting on the mounting points have a lot of extra material on them. I will clean that up with the grinder and everything should work out well.
I will follow up when the welds are done and all that.
My plan is to have then jet hot coated separate from the brew stand and bolt them in.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. I think if I would do it different, I would have got the metal cut a bit longer. Or at least cleaned up the burners prior to drilling holes.
I will make it work and it will work good when its all said and done. It will just be more work in the end.
