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? Thanks, Matt
On Apr 11, 2005 4:00 PM, Brett Mason wrot <Snip> 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 least. Matt
How about the Turkey Deep Fryers? I don't know their BTU rating, but here is a page:http://www.comfortchannel.com/level.itml/icOid/4698Dave S. Matthew Price wrote: <Snip>

Sorry, didn't see the original post. Saw one listing for a US source for Sievert torches. That is:http://www.sssmodels.com/Hope this helps. ---Frank Justin Marquez wrote: <Snip>
Goto: http://www.mcmaster.com/ and search for: 32565K731 3316K2 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.
Try these torches. I have used them and they work fine.http://www.thermadyne.com/tt/literature/index.asp?div=ttHope this helps, PeterZ Matthew Price wrote: <Snip>
