Last night I finished up most of the work on my new stand. I just have a few things like casters And leveling to install and then it's ready to go. I can't wait for the first batch with this.

I'm going to guess he uses keggles and the lips will hold them in place... If so, that's a pretty innovative design.

They have to use kegs. It's actually a good idea. Save weight, and space when not in use.

Thanks guys. I can't take credit for the design. I researched many different styles here on HBT. I do use keggles for the HLT and BK. They hang on "keg hooks" which means they don't move if I don't want them to. . I'll take some more images tomorrow and show the kegs hanging from the center mast. As far as safe, it's way over engineered. I used 2" square tubing, and all 280 lbs of me can stand on the MLT shelf.
