Just a propane burner that I use in my home foundry, it works great for melting aluminum and other metals that melt at around 1200°F (660°C). Thanks for watching and leave me a comment with your feedback, I will be happy to read it.

Parts list:
*all parts are either brass pipe fittings or black iron pipe fittings*
*DO NOT USE GALVANIZED STEEL AS IT WILL RELEASE TOXIC FUMES WHEN HEATED*
1"-3/4" bell reducer
3/4"-8" pipe nipple
1"-5" pipe nipple
X2 1/8"-4" brass pipe nipple
1/8" coupler
1/8" 90° elbow
