    I've been watching from day 1. I've enjoyed watching you overcome the challenges and the comraderie that's gone along with it. I must admit I've had to go back and reacquaint myself with exactly what the hell you were doing with a bit of skeptical amusement (re the Kalashnikov quote), but your tenacity has been something to behold!
    Nice work.

    I don't think your done. I remember you having to raise the furnace to fit the lifting rails. This means that the burner needs a platform so it can reach the tuyere. I see a build of an auto-sensing burner lifter that auto-aligns with the tuyere.

    I too look forward to seeing a big fire in that thing; congrats on completing a truly epic build!

    Hehe, thanks guys. I tried taking J. Dilbert's advice on renaming the thread, but failed. Apparently it only lets you change the post-title and not the thread title

    Yes, the tuyere is a good foot higher now. I need to do some work on my burner anyway, to increase its wind, by swapping its crappy motor with a certain, cheap, little red blower motor Somewhere in there, I'll get it raised up in height as well.
