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.











New burner will be here Wednesday. Bit more fab then off to the sand blast shop.




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.

I used teflon tape on all the joints in my propane line. No leaks. No problems.
