And a semi-gloss black steel stand with stainless steel tabs


Stainless mounting tabs and 316 stainless leveling feet. Also, the countersunk holes in the square tube are actually small stainless pipes welded in to prevent rust getting inside the tubes.

Here's a monster we made. Notice the stainless tabs have a different color to them compared to the steel tube. We try to only use stainless for the tabs because these are very likely to get scratched when you use them. Once rust starts it's tough to stop!

Amazing job Aaron and amazing customer service second to none
Yes really nice guy to deal with
****. Those look nice!!!
Thanks for the kind words

that bare aluminum stand is so nice:)
Thanks, if I had a choice I would never make another steel stand. Aluminum is so nice to weld, it doesn't warp like steel and stays straight and true. We use "marine-grade" aluminum that doesn't need to be painted if you don't want it. A powder coated steel stand is close to the same cost as bare aluminum which makes the decision pretty easy. You can drill it or scratch it and you don't have to worry about rust. I could go on and on...

U guys should prefab and sell L shape light bars made from aluminum in white and black or have a set price and make it BTO. I know some shops carry them but its sub par compared to what you guys can build. usually just steel tubing that's been through a bender (not mandrel either). That would be awesome!

That's something to consider if the demand goes up. Right now we can make them to order in just a few days, some have even picked them up the same day they ordered them.
