I cut up some 1" square
stainless steel with 1/8" wall thickness to be used for the
burner manifold. I had a friend (what would I do without them!)
weld up the pieces. This thing is large (16" x 10") and heavy.
Here's what it looks like.
Well, the next step was to
layout and drill/tap 48 holes. That took a while. I used the
mill to help in getting the taps started straight.
I was anxious to see what
it would look like so I hand tightened all 48 burners. They all
came out straight and looked awesome. Man, this thing is going
to put out a LOT of heat!
