I need help to start stuff on fire

Post by Sparky arrest-her » Tue Oct 06, 2009 11:06 am

I'm a new burner, yeah, I'm excited. I've been a metal sculptural artist for a number of years and I'm looking to start stuff on fire , but I have no idea where to fine all the gas fitting things I might need.. I've got the know how, just need a place to gather the things I need. Could anyone lead me in the right direction?

I'm in withdrawal

Thanks for your advise it's close, but I can't find the stainless steel wick that disperses the pilot light, do you know where I can find this stuff?

i looked at your website....very interesting....i like the red ribbon banister.


i would check with your local HVAC expert, they can probably hook you up or point you in the right direction.

good luck.

once you have all that understood, come back and ask specific questions...

I'm told stainless steel wool works.
Not quite as good as the fancy fire specific stuff.
Not even close in cost either.

Check out industrial supply houses for some hard to find stuff.
