After being inspired by Rick Bobbitts brew sculpture, I started on a journey to build a weld free brew system controlled by the BCS-460 (Embedded Concepts). I was struggling with “weldless” part until an electrician friend of mine told me about “Uni-Strut” or “Super-Strut” pieces. Think giant “erector set” stuff – frames, corners, angles, etc. For us children of the 60’s (thanks Mom!) – we got to play with this stuff as kids.

Enough yammering – here are some pics!
