Maintenance on z-burner


Recommended Posts

I've been using Z-burners for several years but noticed that the performance was falling off.   I found the S/S flares were rough from oxidation so I smoothed with a dremel tool.  I'd read somewhere about smoothing out the seam in the 3/4" pipe.  Being an over-achiever, I lined bored them on the lathe which ended up giving me 0.83 dia which  caused me to have to drill the mig tips to 0.42.  End result - hotter, perfect cone shaped blue flame with less scale.  Well worth the couple of hours down time.
