Topic: US source for Sievert 3941 or equivalent (8 msgs / 135 lines)
1) From: Matthew Price
Howdy All;
I have been looking around for parts to pursue some ideas I have had
stored up over the winter.  Searching usenet for small propane burners
lead me to the Sievert Pro line of tools.  Their 3941 and 2941 -http://www.sievert.se/en/pro86_88.htm- parts look like an excellent
match for what I want to build but  I can't find them in the US. 
Everywhere else I look I either get regular hand torches or 'tips'
which don't include the orifice and burn tube.
A friend, who is a general contractor, told me I might find what I
need at a plumbing supply house but so far no luck.  What I want is a
stand alone propane/air burner that can put out about 15K BTU, wind
proof is also a must.  I want to be able to thread it onto standard
NPT threads and couplings. If I just had the sievert parts imported I
don't think I could find fittings to match.
Does anyone know of something else I might look at as a possible replacement?

The turkey fryers will definitely not work.  They put out WAY to much
heat.  I need between 10K and 15K BTU; the turkey fryer burners start
at 100K and go up from there.
The other option is to build one, but I'm no machinist.  I would
rather buy than build.  A jet burner is pretty simple, conceptually at

How about the Turkey Deep Fryers? I don't know their BTU rating, but

Goto: http://www.mcmaster.com/  and search for:
The are over $100.   A cheap alternative is to scavenge burners from an old
gas range or oven.  Most can be switched over to LP or you can buy an LP
orifice for them.
