They make quality products but there is a fairly long lead time

Pale Ale, thank you for the kind words!

It has been a (mostly) fun little prototype project that is turning out far better than I expected.

Ok, this shouldn't be too hard.
First, cut a length of the 1.5" tubing about 18" long
Drill three equally spaced 5/8" holes through one wall of the tube
Center and weld a 5/8" ...

Has been kind of dead on this thread for awhile. Thought I would share a couple links to a small griddle I built. This design is for relatively high volume production (1500 pancakes/hr) of low greas ...

Nice job! I am impressed, you transformed that thing into a stable cnc platform!

The computer table wouldn't be too difficult. Before I get too involved, with the bill of materials, please help ...

Glad you are starting from scratch! The current table has a couple problematic flaws. First, the tracks are being used as the load bearing members on the long axis. This will subject them to twistin ...

Yes sir, the 1x3 material I referred to was either A513 or A500 mild steel.
Given the relatively small quantities, I doubt your local steel distributor will want to bother with the order. (However, ...

The ability to disassemble and still maintain tight table tolerances without occasionally tweaking is problematic. My thought is to reassemble with bolts rather than welding. Fortunately it appears ...

Do I understand correctly, you are wanting to permanently cut the table width down to 60" for no other reason than to fit through a 60" door? If so, why not tip the table it on its side and ...

From a pure physics perspective, the purpose of both is to provide a heat sink that provides a relatively consistent heat for eve ...

Nothing a bit of hydraulic power can't fix. Looks like your welder got in a bit of a hurry? You can minimize that by using opposing stitch welds and allowing plenty of time for cooling between welds. ...

Yeah, that door is going to be problematic without some love...in hindsight, you probably should have welded some cross bracing before insulating and closing it up. As a stop gap, you could try weldi ...

What is the thickness of the tank wall? I am guessing it is .025"? If so, you would only need to move about 4sqft of steel forward to balance the added 350# firebox. Depending on the actual ta ...

I would recommend you bite the bullet and go with the .25". It will be easier to work with and less prone to warp during fabrication. If you are going to insulate, use the 3/16 to wrap with.

If you choose to cut with the 4.5" sidearm, be sure to use the thin (1/16") cutting disks. Buy a bunch of them, that tank is probably 3/8-1/4 thick.

Can you tape it out with blue painters tape and post a pic before you cut? It would give everyone a good look at your thoughts and avoid a big whoopsie that will cost more beer?
