Look for a restaurant supply place that sells "Steamer Pans". They are perfect for parkerizing.

Fix your link.....

Mounts on the wall too!

"Metal is made from durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel and hangs from almost any piece of bar equipment with keyhole slots that are easy to mount and incredibly secure"

Well, I see the holes are up high enough.

Any 300 series or 18-8
which is the same composition as 304 SS is good.

For years I have used PCV drain piping...cheap--cheap--cheap...can build a whole park tank including the heater from parts at Home Depo for $30 tops!

I like this design because it take up very-very little room (8"x8"x4' high)
compact design that can be used indoors because it's electrical power and not gas fired.

I have built more then half a dozen for friends....work excellent and only uses about 1 1/2 gallons of park solution to do the longest barreled actions.


Basically I use a floor drain for the bottom flipped upside down---reduce the upright from the floor drain to 2" pcv 4 foot long...moving up to the top, then use another floor drain upright to open it back up to 6"--make that about 2 foot up to the open top leaving it open....Now in the bottom of the floor drain on bottom---I thread a hot water heater element (stainless one)--take that electrical lead to a wall lamp reostate mounted in it's own box stand alone one--make a long enough cord to run from the wall to your place you want to mount/use your tank...Plug into the wall---add water and heat some water up with a temp gauge to monitor the tempature----Clearly mark different tempatures on the face plate of the reostate for further use.


Dada'......$30 park' heating tank.....compact/cheap/highly portable/low park solution requirement....really no down side to them.

e-mail me for further into if you want.

Looks like a pretty good source.

I've also had pretty good luck finding stainless bowls and deep trays at thrift stores

Very nice. Just keep in mind that stainless steel is tough to cut. The one with the high back would have to be leveled out to keep your hanging dowels level. The one with out the back would be the way to go. That is as long as there is no mounting holes drilled through it. In that case, they would have to be welded or capped. Which would still be easier than trying to make a 30 inch straight cut through stainless steel.

As u can see these guys are not sealed, any one have any ideas? as far as welding how hard is it to have this welded? was told wen welding S.S requires special something (idk jack about welding)
Could this be sealed by some easy "not welded" way?

Well, the whole thing needs to be welded. Including the folded over and spotwelded seams.
Unless you have a good friend that can weld SS you're probably looking at $100 to a welder.

I'd send them back and order the one piece ones.

Yes sir. an easy $100.00 or more to have it welded. You can buy a regular Parkerizing tank for that.
