     This thread will document my first build. It started off with a 250 gallon air tank, but wanted something a little smaller and lighter.   I'm still debating on the size right now, the ID of the tank is 29.5 and cutting it down to 66 inches total. maybe a bit shorter, depends if there are any reasons to keep it longer.


Here are the calcs I have to start with. 




as for heat:


     I want to be able to use it as a stick burner, but also want a set it and forget it mode.  It will have a PID type controller, I'm just debating implementation between LB and Pellet.  I'm more familiar with (the hazards of )LP,  and will have it on the trailer for other things, but am thinking pellet may be easier to integrate for this application.


  I've been reading a lot of build logs, and trying to glean as much information as I can off of them, but I am open to advice as this goes along.
