yes. I just got one of these. Instead of drilling out the orifice, I used the conversion valve that Williams brewing sells. I did have to drill and tap the opening in the burner to fit this as it is larger than the supplied propane adapter.
It lights up quite nicely on NG, I took some pictures of it. I'll have to post it for you.
Nice flame! What size hole did you drill and what kind of tap? Will one of those cheap Harbor Freight sets work on this? I don't know much about taps - obviously. I do have one of those burners that would be nice to use on another project for grilling.
I don't know about the burner, but I own 2 Harbor Freight tap and die sets (one metric, one SAE) and, so far, they have never let me down. Those sets may be cheap, but, quality wise, they can compete with the best of them.
I had to enlarge the hole in the burner to 1/4" NPT which is what the threads on the conversion valve from Williams are. Any tap set the right size should work, it's pretty soft metal. My tap set did not go that big, so I had to buy that one separate.
not yet. I just got it, its not even in a stand yet. Maybe this weekend I can see if it will mount in my turkey fryer base. I had poor luck converting a high pressure burner to NG, so I wanted to see how clean this burned before messing with mounting it.
