Sorry guys but isn't easy.
I made my burner myself and they still cost me 10$ each. Look at the Oliver upwind thread to see what I m be able to get !
Amazon IS the cheapest place to buy regulator. It's 45$ for a 0-30 psi + 15% taxes. ... 50$ Great for you in USA at 20$!!!
1/4 valve 10$, fitting 5$ for the regulator and 10$ for the rest on the gas line
Everybody seems agree for 30$ of kaowool. Rigidizer 5$, BUT it's 45$ for the kastolite (20lbs propane tank) and 20$ for Metrikote.... no shipping fees, in my case 50$ !
The shell maybe free or 20$ for some cutoff wheel, welding rod, time and so...
That's what I see, that's what I get !
Some people are very proud when the pay hi, some when they pay low. Î don't care!! But don't try me. to believe that you can achieve something paying less than the cost of the hardware !
I know Wayne , i know amazon, I know McMaster Carr.... and i do the garbage of my neighbors ... I think than I'm not a kind of person spending is money by windows... A decent forge is minimum 150$-200$ from scratch. Anyone willing to sell me his for 100$, I'll buy it !!
Now i shut up !
