Yep, sorely tempted to do this now. I dont want to waste whats left in the tank but dont want to run out either. I guess I can always return the empty bottle to get my deposit back and drop down to 1 bottle once this project is finished.Dirtytires wrote: ↑February 28th, 2021, 11:21 amOn your tank, use it till it’s empty. With that said, if your gauges are accurate, it won’t take more than a few minutes once the needle hits zero.
On the flip side, you definitely can get a replacement before it’s completely empty. I now keep a spare full bottle in the shop but would sometimes take mine in for an exchange on a Friday so as not to run out over the weekend when my supplier is closed. Nothing worse than running out of gas on a Saturday morning and wasting a good weekend of welding.
Thanks, that makes 2 of us!!! Whoever said I had a lot of work ahead of me was 100% rightCole Leffert wrote: ↑March 1st, 2021, 10:15 amLooking really good! Can't wait to see the finished product!
Aye getting there, still a lot to learn though, think I hit the duty cycle limit earlier todaySheffSmoker wrote: ↑March 6th, 2021, 5:25 amTop work Pete, looks like you're getting to grips with the new welder now.
Yea I'm going to have to do them a rack of ribs or something.
I'm using a wooden handle on my firebox door, Pete. Bolted on via a 2" bit of plate welded to the door, Wherever there's a join the heat doesn't seem to conduct as much, it's darkened a bit from first fitting but never any danger of it igniting. Similarly, our old gas BBQ has a plastic handle bolted to the lid!BigPete wrote: ↑March 9th, 2021, 1:35 pmExcellent thanks gents, regular offset it is got a solid 7hours cutting and welding in today great progress but the neighbours must hate me!! Will post a few photos tomorrow.
Need to work out a design for cook chamber handle that can the heats of a BBQ not just smoking temps.
Thanks it's coming along nicely, just disappointing that any time I use it the neighbour bitches, really puts a damper on it all, especially when all possible options have been done to minimise the impact to them. (Stack as high as could without planning permission etc)SheffSmoker wrote: ↑April 26th, 2021, 4:53 amLooking great, Pete!
How much of a gap did you leave between the metal and the tile? It's more than likely thermal expansion of the pit that has cracked the tile by the looks of it. I'd leave an expansion gap and use high temp silicon as you suggested. Wouldn't look out of place in black.
