    Hi Guys.

    What do you think about the attached connectors for tank stand building?

    Looks awsome. I don't see any indication of what load it can handle. It would make so simple for just about anyone to build a stand.
    Good find.

    Will definitely check these out ! Apparently, you can get these at our local hardware store and given I've only ever welded two simple items and I'm more a grinder than a welder , this could save my sanity !

    The distance the tube sticks into the joint is not enough. IT can still allow a bit of flex, too much for my liking. Especially on heavier tanks.

    Good idea but as riaan says won't trust it on big tanks.
