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.
