    I know that I could go out and buy a pre-fab discada stand & burner, but those here that know me, know that's not the way I roll. I've had an idea in the back of my head for a while and have been patiently watching CL for a good deal. Well yesterday was the day! I picked up 4 steel rims for $10.00!! I have two different plans for these guys so watch here as things develop.

    Warmed up enough for me to pick up frozen pieces of steel and word today.

    I was going to reuse a burner I had, but after trying to thread the new needle valve I decided to buy a new burner too.

    I might cut the legs down a bit but for now I'm going wait until I use it a few times.

    Burner will set through this slot. Cut with grinder.

    Smoke away!!!

    So after a good nights sleep I decided that the burner is going to need a place for utensils. It also is going to need handles. Steel rims weigh a ton! I am going to keep with the horseshoe theme and add a few.

    I still need to cut out the center of the wheel. I think that it is going to interfere with the burner too much. Good thing I stocked up on cutting wheels!

    New burner arrived. Think I will use rectorseal on the threads. Anyone see a problem with this? I've never seen teflon tape on these joints before.
     
  17. I used teflon tape on all the joints in my propane line. No leaks. No problems.

    Still working on it... Since I can't use my grinder in my garage I have to work when the weather allows. Been too much rain pouring down!
     
  20. Where did you get the disc? Love the handles.
