I started this about a year ago, but got delayed when my daughter was born. But it is finally picking up speed again and I wanted to share, because I have got tons of inspiration from this forum. I work in a sheetmetal/electrical shop, so I have access to a lot of neat tools.

Really nice build. Why did you go with Honeywell Smart Valves?

I wanted the automatic pilot and these seemed very safe and simple.

I'm figuring out how to mount the control panel.

Excellent job so far, you have mad fabricating skills bro!

Good Luck with the rest of your build,

I ran the copper gas lines and mounted the pilot lights.

If I could make a suggestion...
Build a cover over the smart valves..one slight opps with water and they are toast. They have circuitry inside them.

I made sum edits because i do now see the valve on the main burner... it was hiding from me.

Thank you for the advice! I never really thought about that.

I'm getting closer to brewing on it!

Must be nice to have a fully equipped fab shop available. I used to program machines like the Wiedematic in the background of your photo of mounting the control box. Wish that I had that type of equipment available now.
