Plasma cutting?

Postby Mob_Barley » Fri Mar 05, 2010 12:52 pm

Anyone know where I can get the tops of three kegs cut out with a plasma cutter? Any recommendations?

??? Why not just use an angle grinder like everyone else does? Does this mean you're building a RIMS (or HERMS)? Please let me know so I can add you to the list.
BTW, Buddy has a nice little jig that makes perfect circles with the angle grinder.

I don't have an angle grinder...and yep, I'll be working on a RIMS soon. I'm going to Florida to pick it up tonight. Someone there tried to sell one on ebay and it didn't sell, so I kept in touch with him and told him I"d like to buy it. So, I"m going to pick it up. I'll probably need some help with the wiring and stuff when I start working on it.

Here is the original ebay auction. I'll be getting it at a better price than what's listed though.

The link is no good. It just says "Bidding Has Ended On This Item." As far as not having an angle grinder, I believe you are a member of the Dead Yeast Society. We help each other out all the time. I know of at least 3 members, myself included, who would be more than happy to help out in this endeavor.

Ah. I see now. Fancy rig. Not much to do but put it all together and run your gas lines. I can't be certain, but you may need some Asco valves too.
