33838Re: TOMS OIL BURNER???
- Feb 2, 2005I have the innards of a furnace burner outside in a toolbox. If you
can get the whole thing intact (a SMALL furnaces gun) seems like
theyd be perfect. On mine the oil pump was toast and i think it is a
pretty high pressure pump so i just "stored" it. I'm building
the "kerosene torch" oil burner in the files section and am a bit
suprised more people dont use it. Im building mine out of 5/8"
allthread, and scrap blocks of cast aluminum. I'm suprised more
people arent using these to be honest. The furnace burners i've seen
use high pressure behind the oil to atomise it. These use the same
mechanism an auto paint gun uses. Seems much safer and simpler. Now
to find a new use for the blower collection (one is 1700cfm heh) i
have and the briefcase mig feeder i was going to use somehow for an
arc furnace. Any suggestions?
