How to Make a Stainless Steel Wok Station / Fryer / Griddle

by:Earlston     2020-03-15
In a previous note, I showed you how to make a frying pan station, and in this Instructable I will show you how to make an updated version of the wok station, this time it will be made of stainless steel.
This wok station can make you an incredible sensation. frys.
It will have the power to give you a sensation
Taste of the restaurant style.
In Chinese cooking, they call it Wok-
Hei in Cantonese literally means \"breath of wok \".
But this is not just a frying pan.
Frys, I cooked a large pot of seafood boiled water with it and it was also a very good Fryer.
One thing I learned in this building is that stainless steel is harder to use than carbon steel (
Rusty steel).
The work of stainless steel will harden very quickly, so unless you have a very sharp drill bit and a lot of pressure, the drilling can disappear forever.
The reason I want to do one with stainless steel is that the oil produced by cooking is hard to clean up the paint surface and I can expose this station to the outside and it will have a gloss and not rust.
Looks great too! ; )
So let\'s get started!
So this building needs the following materials and tools and I will list everything but I may forget something.
A welder is also needed for this building, but you can tie the whole thing together.
There is only one part of the burner ring that really needs to be welded.
It should be noted that the cost of making wok stations with stainless steel is about 1/2 higher than that made with carbon steel.
The amount list is just an estimate because I forgot how much I bought and it\'s usually more cost effective to buy the full length and cut myself.
Sheet metal is an exception to having the metal shop cut for you, just like they do with scissors, which saves you a lot of time, not cutting yourself, and it will be straight and square.
Burneror you can buy a burner: It\'s a video of a full build, the written steps are as follows: The first is to build a good frame that is made of 1/8 \"x1\" stainless steel.
You can change the height to suit your height, but 28 \"is a good height for me, including the height of casters and iron pan rings.
The overall size of the Wok station will be 28 \"x 18\" and I will give the overall steps on how I can build it, but your build may be slightly different so adjust as needed.
I had thought about drilling holes and connecting frames together in case I wanted to make the frying pan station very portable for easy storage.
But I decided to weld it together because it was a lot easier.
Make one side of the frame at a time, then connect the two sides together to make the frame, which is the easiest way I found to make the frame.
This will balance things and reduce headaches later.
Left and right sides: weld the angle type stainless steel to the legs of the frame, then drill holes and threads so that the casters can be secured by bolts.
Annealing steel by heating steel and drilling holes makes it easier to drill holes.
When working with stainless steel, it will harden quickly (
Drilling and cutting).
A large amount of cutting fluid is used when tapping holes with threads.
The taps and bolts I use are 8-32.
The panels on the front, back and side of the station are bolted so it is easy to clean and maintain.
There are two ways to do this, one is to drill holes, just bolt the panels on and the other is to drill holes and tap holes so that no nuts are needed.
The disadvantage of tapping holes is that it takes longer and the speed of using stainless steel is very slow.
Stainless steel will harden very quickly, which means it will actually become harder to use when you work on steel.
There are several tips to use it: Make sure your drill bit is sharp and reduce your feed rate, but increase the pressure on the drill bit and use cutting oil.
But I found that the best way to include what I mentioned is that you should annealing it with heat (
Cooling after heating).
Even in the case of annealing, it was hard to use, so I decided to sacrifice some bit and drill the steel while it was still hot.
Be careful, because the red hot metal may burn you, or it will catch fire when it is on fire.
Tip: You can also learn how to grind the drill bit on the grinder or grinder, the drill bit must have a sharp edge.
Therefore, drilling holes on panels and frames for installation.
Then they were bugged. #8-32 tapered tap)
So the bolts can be screwed directly into the metal frame. I used #8-32 bolts.
Also ensure lubrication when using the faucet.
Note that the panel on the side is mounted 1 \"from the top so splash protection can be installed later.
The panel was tested with bolts.
Warning: it is dangerous to use propane, so don\'t try to do this, I only include this so you will be told.
I suggest you buy a burner made.
So, the power of this frying pan station is DIY high pressure propane burner.
I like the output power and shape of the flame, so I did it myself.
But if you feel uncomfortable making your own product, please don\'t, because I don\'t take any responsibility if you hurt yourself when using propane.
I found a replacement that is perfect for large outdoor cookers.
You can find it on Amazon for a very good price and a matching high pressure regulator when selling.
This burner needs a high pressure regulator with a hose, and you can tell it to be a high pressure regulator because its color is red.
A quick release device is also used so that the propane hose can be removed and connected to other devices.
The burner is very simple, it is made of the main body with 1/2 \"x 8\" long steel pipe and schedule 40 2.
5 \"tube of burner tube. I used a 1.
The 4mm drill bit is used to drill hole holes into the 1/2 \"x 8\" pipe. The 2.
5 \"The tube is welded to the 1/2\" x8 \"tube in the center of the hole.
The burner assembly is then welded to some 18 \"wide stainless steel that will be bolted to the frame of the frying pan station.
Some additional accessories are required to connect the burner to the propane hose and regulator.
Using several elbows and shorter 1/2 pipe fittings, the burner is placed vertically, so the quick connection is closed down from the left side.
The needle valve is placed vertically so that the burner can be controlled, and the needle valve has a great degree of control over the size of the flame.
The needle valve, however, turns slowly and therefore can also use a ball valve, which does not control the flame well.
Try to see what works best for you.
Please make sure to seal all threads with PTFE tape.
Increase the electric start by using a universal BBQ ignition system.
Two holes were drilled on the burner tube about 1/3 metres away.
Then fix the electrode and anchor bolts in place.
Follow the operating instructions of the ignition system.
For more details, watch the build video.
To make this part, some welding machines capable of welding stainless steel need to be manufactured and used.
The easiest and most cost-effective way is to use the sticker welder with some stainless steel welding rods, which is what I am doing.
It would be better if you could use a MIG or TIG device that can be made of stainless steel.
The top of the Wok station is made of a piece of 18 \"x 18\" No. 14 stainless steel and welded to the frame.
The ring on the iron pan is made of a piece of 3 \"x 28\" No. 14 stainless steel.
A circle is tracked on the stainless steel of the 18 \"x 18\" specification, and the size of the circle will depend on the size of your pot.
I made this 14 \"in diameter.
It depends on how big your pot is, but I find that for the pot station of 18 \"x 18\" 3 \"x 28\" No. 14 stainless steel, 14 \"The ring is a good size steel is the first pre-
Bend in a circle over the barrel.
Then weld it to the position on the circle, then move each part of the ring and fix it in place until the whole piece of metal is bent and welded in place.
Don\'t worry about welding the whole thing, just Weld once every 1 \"left and right.
At the same time, a single welding of long beads will lead to metal distortion.
The rear of the ring is left behind as a vent for the burner.
After the ring is in place, use the angle grinder to cut out the hole inside the ring.
The side table is made of some finger-connected pine boards, dyed and painted, so it will be sealed as this frying pan station will spend a lifetime on the outside.
Side tables can be folded using splints and Rod racks.
A \"French cleat\" is installed on the bottom of the side table, and then a curved 1/4 stainless steel rod is used to support the table stuck on the cleat.
This is a very solid mechanism.
To install the side table, some hinges are bolted to the side panel of the frame.
Install the panel and side table on the hinge on the wok station.
The frame of the frying pan station has about 1 \"angle steel welded in place and has a hole drill that accepts 1/4 stainless steel bars.
Bend the 1/4 \"rod\" into a \"U\" shape and then install it into the hole of the 1 \"angle steel.
It is difficult to describe to see the picture, but it is easy to see and understand.
Splash protection device made of No. 20 stainless steel.
The installation system is installed for easy cleaning.
A piece of steel is bent into a corner so that the three pieces that make up the shield can be fixed together by bolts.
The mounting system is a \"x 1/8\" strip stainless steel rod, welded on the frame, with a 1/8 gasket at both ends and in the middle, which is done on the side and back.
The splash guard then cuts the gap so it can fit into the stand.
Another option is to open the splash guard.
This is a must for cleaning the removable splash guard, as the heat of cooking does Bake the grease.
It\'s time to put the whole station together, install the burner, install the ignition system, and the front panel is bolted.
All sharp edges are polished with a sanding cloth, with extra care around the burner ring and splash shield.
All surfaces are then polished by metal.
At this point, the frying pan station looks very professional and can be used at any time!
Last point about woks: you want to buy a thin pot of metal.
This sounds a bit unintuitive, as in the kitchen you want the pot bowl pans basin with heavy walls and bottom, so it keeps and distributes the heat for the night.
However, you want the pot to be thin because when you have a burner, its shear power can basically overwhelm the pot, there is no need for a heat mass.
In fact, the heat can be hindered and the thickness allows the pan to cool quickly or heat quickly.
Hope you enjoy this version and consider following me on instructures and youtube to learn more about cooking!
