      I heard a rumor that the Lilies Committee was considering making some incinitrons for use at the war (so that everyone wouldn't have to keep borrowing Fernando's set--apparently people borrowed them more nights than he got to use them himself). Anyone know if this is true?

      I think it would be a great idea to have light like that at next year's ball.

        getting the plans spread around, the things might become common enough
        that each event has 2 or 3 good gentles who brought theirs along.

        I wouldn't mind having a go.

          Forwarded from Fernando:

          Start with a standard 20 pound propane tank (like for a BBQ grill).

          Next, you need a standard BBQ grill regulator. (You can buy these at a lot of
          hardware stores that sell BBQ grills.) Cheap ones work, but go that extra
          few bucks for the middle of the road model. The cheap ones hum annoyingly
          more often and freeze up a lot more.

          Note: I'm told that some more modern regulators have a shut back feature if
          there is a lack of back pressure. If you end up with a regulator like this,
          it is tough to get the flame up to full without a lot of work (feathering it
          up a bit at a time.) Most of these regulators are for the newer male threaded
          tanks (female regulator). Almost all the older ones use female tanks (male
          regulator). If you can I'd target these.

          Next, I use 1/2 inch black iron pipe for the poles. Start with one section
          6' long for the main pole.

          Safety Note: All your connections should be sealed with Teflon tape around
          the threads before you connect the pipes.

          On the top of this pole, I use a 1/2" to 3/4" adapter, followed by a 3" piece
          of 3/4" pipe.

          Drill holes in the 3/4" pipe for the gas to come out. I put 10 holes in 4
          columns (3 -2- 3- 2). I think I used around 3/16" holes. If you want more
          height, you could skip the holes and just leave the end open, but I like the
          bushy flame effect of mine a lot more than the gas jet effect of some of the
          others out there. Drill fewer smaller holes than you think you need, as you
          can always drill a few more (or make them bigger) as needed once you have
          finished trying it out. But if you screw up all you've lost is 3" of pipe. :)

          Once this is together take an 8" stainless steel bowl (mine cost $1.47 at Big
          Lots). Cut a hole in the bottom just big enough for the 3/4" pipe (but not
          big enough for the 1/2" to 3/4" adapter and slide it over the pipe. Rather
          than cut a hole, I used my dremel to cut a star like pattern the appropriate
          size in the bottom of the bowl. Then I forced the pipe through, bending the
          little "flanges" up around the pipe (this keeps it a bit more fixed.)

          You don't "need" this bowl, but I find it a) looks better, and b) helps it
          handle high winds better giving the gas a place to collect before being blown
          away.

          Finally cap the 3/4" pipe with an end cap. I drilled a single hole in mine
          to add a bit of height to my flame.

          Now the fittings.

          To the bottom of the 6' pipe connect a 1/2" valve.

          Below the valve goes another piece of 1/2" pipe. The length depends on if
          you want the valve outside or inside the boxes. You must adjust this based
          on the size of your boxes to put the valve where you want it. I made mine so
          the valves are _just_ above the box. (the valves and everything above them
          come off when I transport mine).

          This short pipe is then connected to one of the arms of a 1/2" "T" fitting.

          The base of the "T" is where the regulator connects. BUT, the regulator
          connection wont fit the "T". You will need an adapter. Specifically a
          "Flare - MIP" adapter. This is a brass fitting. Sadly I can't recall the
          exact size, so you will need to take your regulator and your "T" in with you.
          This, like almost everything else except the regulator, is found in the
          plumbing supply dept. I _think_ it is a 3/8" to 1/2" adapter, but I don't
          recall which is the flare and which is the MIP.

          With this adapter you can connect the hose from your regulator to the 'T"

          Below the "T" on the other arm goes about an 8" piece of 1/2" pipe.

          Connect this to a 1/2" floor flange. Then seal the bottom. I have 3 ways to
          seal the bottom.

          A) Find someone who can weld iron pipe right (it uses different material than
          typical SCA armor welding), and have them seal the bottom. - You _must_
          check this under pressure. It is easy to have what looks like a perfect seal
          that really pours out a _lot_ of propane. I speak from experience. Once you
          think it is sealed, connect this to your tank, close the valve that leads to
          the top and use soapy water to test for leaks. Or if you are brave just
          stick a lighter near it and see if it lights. We did this, and even though
          there were no visible holes and we could hear no hiss it still put out
          several good sized 6+" flames.

          B) Use a tap and die set to tap the inside of the bottom of the pipe (inside
          the floor flange, then stick an internal pipe endcap in.

          C) Forget the floor flange and just end the pipe with a typical end cap. This
          is the easiest but the least favorable option because the pipe can no longer
          be screwed down to the base of the box. You could also do this and have
          someone weld the cap onto a metal bracket of some sort. This is a lot easier
          than sealing the end for a lessexperienced welder.

          Now take your hardware and mount it in a box. Don't leave the tank and stuff
          exposed. Its more dangerous, and it looks stupid.

          Make sure you incorporate some way to stake down the assembly to avoid it
          being knocked over by accident. I use eyebolts in the corners of the boc and
          run long stakes through them at angles. You could just drill diagonal holes
          through the corners of the boc and use sjakes all the way through without the
          eye bolts..

          Once you are set, use a long lighter and FLAME ON.

          Let me know if you have questions. Fernando@...

            As someone who just came and danced, I liked things. I think the site had
            its problems, but we adjusted (dancing korobushka around the tent, for
            example). Nothing could be done about wetness, glad that a few dances were
            skipped. Dancing under the tent might have helped with light by reflecting
            (not to mention the grass being dried and ground flatter) but I think it
            would have been dangerous to bring the incinetrons under the cover, yes?

            I liked the dancecard, although I don't understand the notations for the
            dances. Glad there were quick walkthroughs before dancing because I had not
            gotten to classes (too busy!) and never remember which name goes with what
            steps.

            Otoshi's son is now a very enthusiastic dancer. I appreciated that others
            in our sets helped him to get where he needed to be and he loved the
            experience. At first Matt said "I'm too young to dance," and then I pointed
            out Katriana's daughter and a couple other kids, and he was quite
            enthusiastic.

            ----= Morgan (glad I made it this
            year!)

                    Coronation next weekend will have a ball, and I'm pretty psyched!

                    In order to make it as low-stress as possible, how about all musicians bring
                    last year's Crystal Ball and Lilies Ball music sets. I bet the dancers can
                    come up with enough good dances out of those sets to keep everyone happy,
                    and the musicians will have a bit of familiarity going in. (And I won't have
                    to make a bunch of photocopies by next weekend.) :)

                    Sound good to everyone?

                      Coronation next weekend will have a ball, and I'm pretty psyched!

                      In order to make it as low-stress as possible, how about all musicians bring
                      last year's Crystal Ball and Lilies Ball music sets. I bet the dancers can
                      come up with enough good dances out of those sets to keep everyone happy,
                      and the musicians will have a bit of familiarity going in. (And I won't have
                      to make a bunch of photocopies by next weekend.) :)

                      Sound good to everyone?

                      Conna

                      Do we know what we will be playing at Lilies yet?
