Nice job! I really like how compact it is.

Very nice - great DIY option for guys that don't want to weld.

Welcome to homebrewtalk, my ass! He's been here just about as long as sause, and his first post is FOUR YEARS after registering?

Awesome.




Ha! I was wondering if someone would notice that. I've been lurking here for quite some time, huh?! I've gotten tons of info from you guys over the years and really appreciate it. Sorry I haven't contributed much but I've been busy soaking up all the info.

Yes, they're banjo burners. No plans for painting. I think it's all zinc plated. I know it'll corrode/rust some, especially where I made the cuts and around the burners, but I'll see how she holds up. The most expensive part of the stand was the stupid casters. If it gets too nasty, and as long as the casters hold up, I can just replace the rest of it for about $140.

By the way, besides the stand, my favorite gadget is the sight glass on my HLT (built from info found on this forum!). I love that thing!

Thanks again!

Casters were the biggest ticket item on my stand also...

That is a very cool build! It looks great and I love those burners.

Sam,

Nice job kind of looks like my frame. I built it from uni-strut or sometimes called super strut. It is very strong and was under $150.00. Sorry about the picture but it is the only one I had right now. Anyway it should get the message across.
To me this is one of the best ways to put a frame together without welding or other costly materials. This also gives you the ability to reconfigure the frame at anytime depending on your personal needs. It should work out great.

I know these all look pretty straight forward, but how about a simple write up on these weldless brew stands? Sounds like something I would be interested in putting together myself.

Do yourself a favor, get some engine paint. It's expensive in auto stores usually, but I scored a few cans for a project I was working on for dirt cheap at Ollies (bargain outlet).

+1 on this...I'd really like to see an in-depth write up on the design and build process. I have a friend with access to a ton of old bed frames. I was thinking about cutting the frames, drilling some holes and bolting it all together. But before I get started it would be nice to see some in-progress pics and notes.
