Other uses for a Frosty Tee

Recommended Posts

Thanks Frosty!

 

I had a tool that didn't want to come apart at a 2-7/8 NUE thread (2-1/2" tapered pipe thread)  I had a fork lift pulling on a 36" pipe wrench yesterday with no effect other than to flex the vice its in.  I rigged up a 1" Tee burner this morning and fired it up for 5 Minutes, then broke the connection with a 36 by hand with very little effort.  Normally we would have used a rose bud on a oxy/Acc torch but this was a lot easier to deal with.  The shop guys say I cant have my burner back:D

I rolled the tool a 1/4 turn about every minute and it got to dull red in about 5 minutes.

that's good idea.

I am working now to get t-burner to work similar to banjo burner on a turkey fryer for boiling wort...making beer. Will post up pics when completed.

I basically did the same with a 3/4" t-burner to straighten the leg of my 4" post vise a little while back. It had a 90 degree bend in it when I bought it.

Jacob: You'll do MUCH better using a commercial burner in your turkey frier, honestly they have the design dialed in.

Using naturally aspirated burners as open air torches is the best reason to put a flare on the end. Ron Reil spent quite a bit of time working the flare out for just that reason.

thanks Frosty, i will probably just keep using normal turkey fryer. It slow but still does what I need.

I was thinking and collecting parts for using t-burner with a large metal funnel like a flare/flame containment w/hles drilled around top edge. then put little grill on top to hold my boiling kettle. I can't help but wonder how fast my 7gallon kettle would reach boiling point. oh well, i'll just keep it as a thought, I've probably overlooked something critical anyhow.

I'd be more worried about burning the wort on the sides/bottom of the pot.  There are reasons stoves heat slowly!

To misquote Sulla in "Raiders of the Lost Ark"   "Cajun Beer!  Very deadly...you go first..."  and please make a note to forget to remember to inform me of the results...

Would Ballast Point - Jabañero Sculpin IPA count as Cajun, even if it is from here in San Diego, CA.  It is so hot that you need a beer in the other hand just to cool you down, although ice cream would probably work too.  What Ice cream flavor goes good with beer though?

In the days before designer dairy ice cream, a local bacon, sausage and pork pie factory owner came up with a way of turning pig fat into a white frozen confection. He managed to popularise it by sending out lads on pedal tricycles with a cold box between the front wheels. Emblazoned across the front of the box was "Stop me and buy one!" His other bright marketing idea was to offer every petrol station and newsagent a free stocked freezer full of the stuff. No outlay just share the profits…brilliant marketing. Walls ice cream was the only thing on general sale over here throughout the fifties and seventies. Mr. Whippy vans appeared in the late sixties.

Hmm...beer nut?  Maybe I need to learn how to make the stuff and see about partnering up with these guys.  Ice cream and bottle openers...

The one in the video is made of 1" pipe. I do not know how big frosty has taken these.

Where are you at in Texas.

1" is the largest I've made but I know of a couple casters who have bumped them to 1 1/4".

WAY too much unless you're melting BIG batches. An old friend used a 1 1/4" NA propane burner to do 40lb.+ iron melts.

Don't suppose you have any pictures kicking around of his setup for doing those iron melts Frosty?  Kinda curious to see how it might be done.
