Aluminum tank stand.

Recommended Posts

Building my own aluminum tank stand.

48"x24"x46"

I am tig welding the whole thing. Using 2"x2" square tube for the uprights, and 2"x3" for the top and base. The frame will be visible and I will use a light wood for the panels.

I already cut and prepped all the aluminum, and started welding up the stand. Should be finished this evening. 

Will also be adding a light rack when I am finished. Didn't thing of it till I already started.

Looks really nice!  Having seen steel stands for tanks 10X the size use only 1" square tubing it looks like you went for some serious overkill there.  :grin:

I built the stand beefy enough to hold a larger tank in the future. But yes is it is overkill. 2x2 and 2x3 aluminum is beefy haha.
