    Iron Man strikes again!

    Just when I was going to say something about the last one, the Clam-Master strikes again. WOW... nothing like having a thing for being detail oriented. I just love looking at your work. What you do is what I will be showing to the guys that work around here. I have stalled my own install until spring, but when they say "you want it how?" I can show them. Thanks Clammy for the inspiration and have a good weekend.

    paint

    MAD DOG paints pipes... beautiful black. Clammy's got the colors.

    Clammy, the (originally) black iron work is fantastic looking!

    Thanks for the inspration but on this one i have to thank my buddy work partner and a great friends Terrance sowetimes we don't see eye to eye but just like me he loves when things look good and are doen right alot of times while we are doing jobs together we look at each other and without a word and know that we are retarted why beacuse that's what ever other plumber who knows us say you guys are crazy but we have a common thread we love quality and we adore that looks on inspectors <HO and other contractors faces besides knowing we are doing the right thing i think most have never seen boiler work and pipe work as a thing of beauty or art now they do Thanks again for the kind words peace and good luck and have a excellent relaxing weekend clammy

    painting pipes

    Hey I like that. You guys have a unique way of doing things. Simple and functional. And attractive. How do you prep the pipe and what kinda paint is it?

    rusolom oil

    Rustolmn oil based and either vinger or acetone i feel the vinger is a better choice .I also use vinger when threading pipes top remove oil i used a 2 gallon bucket and i drip the ends in and it removes the oil on steam boilers it really cuts the skim time down and helps tp remove excess oil from cutting but i also tilt my pipe machine so the oil drip back out the front of the pipe instead of running to the other end it's the tiny things that make a difference thanks and peace and good luck clammy
