Very crudely. I only did a basic calculation with 100kg hanging on the hoop. Ignoring a heap of things just to get a feel for it. 

If you gave it a high stress value on the less than ideal welded joint, and a high shock value on the load being applied...it will still easily hold 25 people hanging on it (ignoring that the ground would fail first).

Proof test?

Made this today, put together out of left over parts that have accumulated over the years doing other projects.

It's been sitting in a pile of bits for almost a year on my work bench getting in the way everytime I try to do something...

Pretty happy with it, making something out of nothing. Still needs a rear wheel, but I started it up and it sounds wicked!

It's a bit lame when factory parts don't meet the certifiers requests.

I think the issue came about because I had a couple bits of rubber hose filling the gap on the pin/pad to centralize the pads. This was to stop them rattling when not braking. I'd had it like this for a longtime with no bad experiences... however this drew attention to this part, and he wanted a better solution. He wasn't happy for me to just take it out and restore the factory rattle, as it's a shit design to begin with.

The way I look at it, any problems that can be solved with a bit of time or money is a real problem. So just get on with it...

Lovin the exhaust, what ya got planned for the christening? 

Cheers man, not sure wat to do yet.. I've got a couple of mutton roasts in the freezer, from some old girl I knocked off a few months ago.. may try that, or go the standard ribs or brisket. 

 

It's been running for 10.5 hours so far.. and its been pretty consistent between 250F and 270F.. had it cranked up to 435F for a bit, just to try and set the pot belly black paint.

Gas or charcoal? A pork butt would be a good (forgiving) first outing. What used to be in the drum? Big fan of the low and slow, lotsa room in a UDS could cater a badass party with that!
