Default Blichmann Top Tier Center Mast

Does anyone know the center mast dimension?
I am building a similar kit with T-Slotted Extrusions.
But I want to use the Top Tier accessories.

It's 3.5" x 3.5". What accessories were you thinking about using?

I like the way the burner mounts, and the shelf.
Considering the cost and time to make a similar rig myself, I like the concept.

I was thinking about doing the same thing. The piece of extrusion would only run about $100 max. Could you also provide the slot centerline distance? I was thinking about making the legs from extrusion also. It would probably cost less than $250 total including casters and feet.

I have looked into the different burner rigs, and she;ves. and i like the concept of the Blichmann, just can't see spending $600+ for the whole system.
I have ordered so T-Slotted Extrusions, that should be here next week.
I will then order the burner, and shelf.
I plan on using the more extrusion as the legs. They will have levelers and casters on them.
They will also fold up for storage/portability.
I am going with a 5'6" center mast, so I should not have any problems adding ingredients during the boil.

Once I start I will get some pictures up.

Where did you guy your extrusion? I would like to find something with a similar profile so I can use the burners and shelves too. I looked at Misumi & 80/20. Hope it is not a special profile with an odd slot pattern.

Sounds like some cool builds here. Keep in mind that the arms that mount the burners/shelves to the center mast are not available separately and are only included with the Top Tier, so those would need to be fabricated as well.

Is that a measurement with a tape measure or with calipers? Could you measure it with calipers? The reason I ask is that it could be 3.5" or it could be 90mm square. I would like to get a center post that matches the originals dimensions exactly.
