    lifting an angle iron stand

    If I wanted to lift a tank about a foot higher can I use cinder blocks under the legs of an angle iron stand? was thinking I could put a length of 2x4 between the metal and the cinder block

    Sure just make sure everything is square an solid... I would personally put a sheet of treated plywood on the top of the cement blocks, so the stand (depending on design) doesn't put too much pressure on a small single point of the brick and cause it to crack... You could use a common 16x8x8 open cinder block and cap it with a solid 16x8x4 cinder block, the sell brick glue in caulk tubes to hold them together, then a 16x8 piece of treated plywood that again can be glued to the brick so it doesn't shift...
