  • ive decided instead of buying a wood burner....there just too expensive.

    im gonna make one :)

    anyone got an old gas bottle they want shifted :)

  • Hey Elliot, I don't want to piddle on your parade, but have you thought this through.
    You are going to need some specialist equipment, cutting and welding ect, to fabricate a burner from a gas bottle. Also you must be sure that it does not leak and poison you in your sleep.

    dont worry mate. ive been up all night reading and watching videos on it. the two most dangerous things ive come across is 1 cutting the bottle open with gas still left in the bottle. you stop this by filling it with water and leaving it overnight before cutting it. and 2 the paint on the side of the bottle giving off poison when you light a fire in it. this you stop by putting it in a fire before its finnished and go over it thoroughly with a wire brush when hot.

    as for the tools its only an angle grinder and welding gear.:thumbup:

  • Yep I've got an empty bottle you can have but its in my shed and can't let it go for nothing cos of the fact it was a mission and a half to tat it in the first place ;)
