Does anyone in our group make steel stands?

Or, have you used some one that you’ve loved?

There's a guy in the hobby that is down the road from me that has the tools and capability to make them, even get them powder coated. I talked to him years ago about making one for @kjonulak, but he ended up using extruded aluminum.

I can't attest to his work, but I can reach out to him to see if he's interested, what are the dimensions of the stand?

Depending on size, I'd probably lean towards extruded aluminum as well...

Thanks for the reply Jimmy. The tank is 72”x30”.

Why would you lean towards extruded aluminum?

Depending on what the local guy charges, a steel stand or an extruded aluminum will run about the same price. I had an extruded stand for a 24"x24" that I was able to extend to fit a 36"x24" tank. It was cost affective to do. Doesn't Titan have that non metal stand parts? Not sure the price on something like that.
