Got most of the stand done today, only 4 interior legs to go. Unfortunately I have to go out of town for a wedding, but by the time I get back my bag of goodies from Bobby over at brewhardware.com should be in.

Its an abrasive cut-off saw. Its a bitch to cut 45's and end up square.
Good call on the corner clamp, wish i had those when I was making mine. Good luck!

Looks good im thinking of doing stainless eventually and tig welding it up. A tip on welding , if the welder you are using is unable to achieve full penetration you should consider beveling the edges to be welded. You will be better off down the road as the above photo shows little penetration and a somewhat dirty weld. What comb. Shielding gas are you using C25, argon, or straight co2?

The 45s were a bitch. It was straight co2. It seemed very sturdy, if not I'll chalk it up as a learning experience. With the last pieces I will try beveling, thanks for the tip.

I think I've decided on these. I have a natural gas line in my garage that's capped off.

If you ever plan on automating, make sure there is a way to get an ignition probe under that hood on the jet burner. Also, if you are building wind screens, it is a good idea to leave enough of a gap so that the oxygen supply isn't choked off when you put the kettles on the stand. Also, make sure the distance between the windscreen and the burner isn't too great. Windscreens make good mounting points for the ignition probes, but you want to make sure they can reach the jets. I use NG jet burners as well. They work well and are very powerful. Link to my stand in my signature. You can see how my windscreens are open in the front.
