They look excellent for homemade. But I actually thought the thread was about hamburgers. Now I am hungry.

once again thank yall for the compliments! and for the ? asked earlier it is a hypertherm torch. There has been talk of building and selling if these turned out right! we will have to see. I think the dimple dies made a world of difference in looks, but the idea was basically a step(so the wifey and children could get in easier) with the small dimples coming upward for traction and the bigger holes facing downwards for drainage. I will definately have more pics up as they are coated and bolted!!!
