Re: [hobbicast] More rookie furnace design questions.
My burner uses a 1-1/4" pipe and my vent hole on the top is 2" and the drain
vent is 1" and the leak around the lid, well, it's there! The furnace is for a
#10 crucible (6" dia, 8" high). If you make your hole too small you may have
trouble opening it up. If you make it too big, you can make a 1" thick 'washer'
with a smaller hole to lay over the lid vent to choke it down. I think you will
be all right with a 2" vent.

I think the propane pressure pretty well has all it can do running the
venturi. The diesel needs a separate power source.
