rim is easily removed, even while the tank is running
I was thinking about that, but I am afraid of:rim is easily removed, even while the tank is running
At 12" you can remove the rim without any dangers. The edges will be smoothed, the manufacturer does not want industrial injury claims.I was thinking about that, but I am afraid of:
- might crack the tank!
- sharp unsightly edges of the glass (non finished??)
- spoke with the tank builder, they confirm that the rim doesnt play any role in structurally
- plus its only 12 inch high, and bottom rim is hidden by my stand
- I own a dremel, Don't know if I should do it!!!
(no water in tank as of right now)
yup thats what I was told at HD, they said the last time they were true 2x4s were in the 1920s!!!!Lol 2x4s haven't been true 2x4s since like WWII or something like that. You're a bit late. Lol
impressive first project. Hopefully not the last, it's a sicknesslol this is btw my first time working with 2x4s, heck first time working withwood
But it makes you feel better having it, doesn't it? Every stand I have ever built cost me twice as much as it should have in material, but I sleep better knowing how overbuilt they are. Eventually the urge to built a strong stand with the least amount of material will hit me, but as long as 2x4's are as cheap as they are, I'm quite happy to use more than my shareadded another 2x4 in the middle, overkill, the tank has a rim, so all the weight is on the corners, the middles doesnt even touch!
