Yep I've been using Google and finding some helpful information.
Hadn't thought of having to light the sections separately but it makes sense, not a big deal though. I have an old BBQ that I can take parts off of, maybe I can even salvage the starter. My original plan was to take a single length of pipe and bend it, but I have no idea how I would do that.
This is the OP's 3rd post early on in this thread. I quickly assesed that he would be in over his head. Yet, at no point did I say "stop!". I do stand on my statement that there is more to this than meets the eye.
I KNOW that it is not rocket science. I also KNOW what it is like to have fire on you. The following is just a small bit of information that relates to proper DIY pipe burner making....
As the PTFE tape industry evolved into more products they adopted a standardized color code.
WHITE- Single density tape to be used as a thread sealant on NPT (National Pipe Taper) threads which are equal to or less than 3/8".
YELLOW-Double density "Gas tape" suitable for NPT threads equal to or greater than 1/2" but not more than 2"
Red- Triple density tape suitable for NPT threads equal to or greater than 1/2" but not more than 2". (NOTE-The package is a red spool with a red cover ring and plainly labeled 'triple density", but the tape itself appears as a pale pink color).
GREEN TAPE- Listed as "OXY/MED tape"-certified oil free to be used on lines conveying oxygen and some specified medical gasses.
COPPER TAPE- Contains copper granules and is certified as a mechanical thread lubricant but is not certified as a thread sealant.
