    I was slow picking up on this part of the thread, thought this was referring to the handcranked fan in the vid previous. His wax looks like pure parafin, absolute crap. And he should know that wax tools perform better warmed up.

    Let's call this one.... Duck and Cover. While this tank build has shown to be successful, it doesn't mean it will be in 5years after a little corrosion sets in. And to think of all the money I've spent through the years getting hydro inspections done... :-/

    I don't have time right now to watch this whole thing, but I'm curious - if he's only pressurizing this "tank" to a couple PSI, where is the danger in a tank failure?

    I'm curious what the hazards are in what he's putting together?

    I think he's around 10psi. While that doesn't sound like much, it is a TON of outward force with his skill level in welding. Ever notice tanks that are pressurized are ROUND?

    OK I'm a military (Navy) trained High Pressure welder qualified to weld on submariner hulls, I welded my fuel tank out of 1/4 inch A36 and pressure tested it to 120PSi QED it's 12 inch X 12 inch and certainly not round... what is the big deal I mean really BBQ tanks can easily get up to 300PSI at 130F and they are 14 Gauge steel ???

    P.S. OK boy cant weld and learned structural design in home Economics and I lost IQ watching that :-(

    Now I would trust you to weld me a pressurized tank out of tin foil.... Not this clown. ;-)

    That's a 'how not to' advisory video right? As for BBQ tanks he may just have well converted one and saved the decent steel for something usefull.

    My father welded 1000psi pipework at the refinery but didn't want me to become a welder so only passed on a little of his skills.
