Hi guys,

Just thought I'd post a pic of my brew stand in progress. I bought myself a cheap welder ( ebay) and thought i'd have a go at welding it up myself. As far as my welding goes, well it leaves a lot to be desired, but it's nothing a grinder cant fix up. And I think i might have to add a bit more steel in the middle for strength. Anyway its tens timer better than my old stand, which is in case your not sure is the 2nd pic. :p


New one... :)

Looks the goods vl, very tidy! The old one looks like a fire hazard, not sure I would leave the boil unsupervised on that one :lol:

Certainly a massive improvement over the previous set up. I'm jealous. My set up is still very, very basic.

Oh bugger it.

While I'm at it... My new setup is finally finished.

Not too bad price-wise materials for stand only cost me $75 all up give or take a few dollars. Shows if you shop around you can pick up some pretty cheap alternatives. Pretty simple to cut and bolt together too. :)

Out with the old. This how I used to rather dangerously balance everything. :blink:

And in with the new. Slightly improved I'd say. :lol:

Yep, she's a whopper Borret. Nice and easy to read though. For 30 bucks though. I'm not complaining. :D

I'm thinking of re-naming it Big Ben. :lol:

They are some nice looking stands blokes!! Warren, where did you get the slotted angle from, looks similar to the gear sold at Bunnings but if you know of a cheaper dealer I'd love to have that info.... :)
