I tell you what I did Doocat. After pricing out the valve, fittings and hose connections I found that it was alot and I mean alot cheaper to buy a portable BBQ grill on sale for 25 bucks and just stripped the parts of it for the finisher. Works like a charm.

Was that a peice of crap or what I like the yellow flame. No air fuel mixing going on there. I find it hard to believe that he could heat that much liquid with that flame.

Default Tube Style Burner

Doocat~
To build the burner for my warming/finishing pan, I talked to my heating guy and he gave me burners out of junked furnaces. There are many different sizes of burners and lengths you can use. I paid nothing for these burners. You can talk to local furnace guys in your area, and they are easy to come across. The burners that I used are stainless steel, and are in excellent shape out of a junked furnace. All I did was build a manifold out of 1/2 inch black pipe, put a cap on one end and a valve on the opposite end. I drilled & tapped the pipe so I could thread the orifice into the black pipe, then the burner slipped onto the orifice. Attached are some pics of the burner stand I built, and some extra types of burners I have. The round ones are out of a hot water heater, and the long ones are out of a furnace. The center pic is the burner that I use. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

Nice job looks great. I like the use of throw away parts. Being SS they get scrapped all to quick. Was the furnace NG or Propane?

The furnace was natural gas. All I did was dig through a box of junk parts at my heating guy's shop. I found a box of gas valves and manifolds, and I found propane orifices. If you have a hard time finding propane orifices, just take the natural gas ones. Solder or brase the hole shut and then drill a smaller hole for the propane. Or you can find propane orifices on eBay. I don't know the number size of the orifice offhand. If you need to know, I'll take one out of the stand to see the number.
