I haven't seen an update in a while. It seemed like you were making some really good progress. Hope everything is ok. Looking forward to seeing the finished project!

All is ok. Don't you hate when life gets in the way!
That being said, I should be back at it later this week and one day over the weekend. Thanks for keeping me on point!

Ok so I got a few hours to get back to the stand build. Real slow moving, need to find 28 or 29 hours in a day. 24 just ain't cutting it.

So I was able to build a new ring out of 2 pieces of 6" 16ga sheet metal Welded together I got at HD as a test. Had some trouble bending so I took some hard wood and rigged up a pathetic but effective press. Temp attached to my small vice and 'pressed' away. Actually turned out real well for not having a metal roller.

Also was able to use the actual burner to confirm fit. Thanks to mfiure coming through on delivery a few weeks back

I was also able to tap an install one of the 2 SS dip tubes loh777 supplied to one of the converted kegs.

Again, slow moving but at least moving.
