Re: Calculating BTU/hr (How Much Propane) to Use for Fire Project

100 meter burner, flame every 10 cm. I’d seriously consider 34 x 10’ sections. Unless you’re going to put a speaker on the cap and make dancing flames to the beat of the music ... which is real fun but you don’t need more than 30’ for the full audio spectrum. Design goals should be: 1. Detection and...

Well, you have two choices. 1. Find an industrial plating plant and outsource to them. 2. Build a plating setup yourself and do the work. Option 2 - you will need to check local regulations to see if this particular craft is regulated. Regardless of regs, there is a mountain of safety that has to be...

Yikes, that looks big. Looks heavy. Looks expensive. Not clear which parts are aluminum, but I get the scale issue. Why do you want to anodize?

Re: Looking forward to join any group of people on the way to 2018's event

Your best bet is to search out Russian travelers/burners to hook up with. Russia and Ukraine are distinct and separate countries. At this moment, there is quite a bit of tension and some might say hostility between the two nations. But it’s OK, we are ‘Merucans so this is expected :P Awkward ;)

Ah, yes, there is a big difference in how they are liquified and stored as well as the plumbing and regulation of the burners. That is true.

Butane gas canister, is it common there? Very common since pot was legalized. :lol: Lowes, Home Depot, WalMart, etc. etc. If you are planning to cook with this, propane puts out more heat and water boils at a higher temperature at altitude. Of course if you already have a butane stove.... That’s so...
