Hi all,

Posting this for Grey Hair, on account of the photo function. Hopefully the PDF attached alright.

Grey Hair has built a Turk Burner, similar to the ones you might see on Youtube. The attached photos are of it warming up, and not yet fully operational. goes like a steam train. runs on just about anything, and I would suggest would make a fantastic forge. Simple construction.

Mk 1 burner was running off a compressor, which worked ok, but not superb. Realised the airflow should be low speed and high volume, not low volume and high speed, as it is static pressure that really improves a burn, not just dynamic pressure.

Grey Hair, I'll let you take over.

Hopefully the attachment worked.
:D

Hi all, yes we could have the meeting at my place, 236 Bunya Rd North Arm (15 ks north of Nambour Called "Casper Downs".) I could demo the "Turk Stove" bring ear muffs as it sounds like a jet on full revs. We are surounded with greenies so big bangs are out but plenty of room and will work out a date to suit all. Cheers Grey Hair PS Will clean the outside dunny.
