Burner size is by all means not the starting point! I think deciding what size castings your intertested in doing then aquire a crucible that suits that amount and type of metal, build the furnace then the burner. The more you melt the metal the poorer the castings usually become as some of the good stuff tends to go away and the alloy changes unless you add things back.( hard to decide what went away and replace in a home shop!) My goal is good castings no matter what I do to get there!

      >> Because of ongoing discussions about a unique new burner part, the question has arisen as to what is the most common burner size. Over the years, burners have come to be designated according to mixing tube size, which is usually given as an equivalent pipe size (ex 3/4" and 1"). Ideas, anyone?
