    giggles

    Is that a 4 x 1-1/2"at the end of the header?  Wow -- you could serve peanuts in that thing.



    Nice work.

    Very Nice

    Very nice!  What an improvement over that copper sweat mess.  I bet it banged a lot!

    Looks sort of like

    the one Charles Garrity put together for me, only his was welded (only one riser).  It's all wrapped up in insulation now, or I'd post a picture.



    They sure are nice to have -- and work very well indeed!

    Or....

    You could post a picture even though it is covered by insulation. It would be great to see it.

    Oh, just be happy

    with your Midco radial modulating burner. :-P



    I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of that bad boy--maybe a video too?

    Are you a co-conspirator on this?

    What boiler is it going into?

    Midco

    Yes, I am!



    It's going into a Utica SFH. I'll allow Mark to make a new thread about it.
