    Any suggestions for a stand for the MES to raise it a bit higher?

    Perhaps an old gas grill that you can modify in some way.

    Thanks Ryan... was lookin for that thread and couldn't find it. Should be a sticky. Lots of great MES info there.

    I bought a stainless water heater stand at Lowe's-16" tall and support like 700 + lbs.
     
  8. For my CS, I took off the casters and built a raised platform for it to sit on. 4x4 legs, plywood top (think cheap end table). Made the front legs a bit longer than the back to keep it level on my front porch (which is slightly slanted for water run-off). Took about 15 minutes to build, overnight for the paint to dry there it is. Raised it about 15 inches from what it was.

    Go to a printer/copier supply business. They typically have used printer cabinets complete with wheels and cabinet-style storage. I was able to get my pick from a bunch of different styles and the guy gave it to me for free (I took him a smoked turkey breast as a thank you).

    Previoulsy posted my mods here with pics:

    This is the stand I built for mine. Just some 2x4's and a countertop. Oh and casters from Home Depot.
