Painted and plumbed it this weekend.
The black is 1300║-2000║ header paint, silver-blue is 650║ engine paint.
I used 1/2" Galvanized pipe to 3/8" copper tube with flare fittings.

Looks real good.

How did you attach the casters?

I welded gussets and drilled holes for stud mount style castors.
Sorry it's blurry but I cropped it from the original pic. It should be good enough for you to get the idea:

I thought your name looked familiar. I saw your rendering on this thread and asked what program you were using: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-n...7/index32.html

Good to see a fellow SW user.

Sorry man... I did not see your reply to that thread. Yeah, I am on SW2012 and will be heading out to San Diego for SolidWorks World here in a few weeks. I have a little more done to my design, but I want to change some things to reflect the material I have on hand. I need to scrounge up a few pieces of scrap in the yard at work, but I pretty much know what I want to do on my stand (its just in my head) haha...
I work in heavy metal fabrication and use the Weldments tools every day.
I plan to use the conical burners for my stand and want to model some conical wind guards to cut on our plasma table at work...

It's been a little while but I've added the stand-offs. I decided to go with 1/2"x3/4" aluminum bar stock.


I didn't counter-sink the socket head cap screws so that they help prevent the kegs from sliding around.
