I have been delaying finishing up my stand. all is done except for the gas manifold which I am reallllllly having a hard time with. i have posted several times but still havent come up with the fittings and such and i am just plain frustrated. I am using hard piping. 1/2" black steel. I am including a few photos, with what I have on the stand and taken apart. I just cant imagine this being the best way. not to mention on of those little parts that connects flare to flare is $10 at lowes. geeeeezzz..
parts on the stand....obviously
parts off the stand....you get the way it connects from the previous pics.
all the parts separate.
steel 3" nipple
1/2" NPT - 1/2" flare
1/2" flare to 1/2" flare connector (the one that cost $10)
1/2" steel nipple
at the top when it hit the elbow i then have to get over the burner and figure out yet another way to join NPT with flare. this is driving me a little nuts! I know...its probably simple...what can i say, i suck
