    Mashtun Manifold

    Currently building a copper manifold for mashtun and got into a discussion about holes or slits in the manifold? Is there a reason some dremel slits verses drilling holes? To me it seems to be comparing apples to apples, but is there actual logic behind it? Is it pressures and allowing more...
