I purchased the 2" .120" steel through a local company in my town that does steel fabrication.

We have the gas pipe installed with the ASCO valves attached.

Looks sweet. Are those the valves you bought from me? They look really familiar. I'm dying to get my build going too so I can start using mine. I also talked to ASCO about that particular model, and the tech told me that although they are not rated for NG or LP they can be used for that. The ones that are rated have special criteria for industrial purposes (tons of cycles unattended) so there's another level of testing required, and pricing of course. Also, did you start with stainless and paint over it?

My frame is built out of Steel that has been Powder coated. I can't wait for it to be operational!

Any reason you went with the black pipe instead of the "gas beam".

My next door neighbor works for an HVAC company and has unlimited access to black gas pipe and all of the fittings (nipples, elbows, etc) needed to make all of the gas connections.
