    Got a question for the pros. Getting everything laid out to start cutting. I am stumped on the size of 250 g tank . Its 88inches from seam to seam not counting the oval ends over all is about 10'  long. This seems pretty big ( long ) when i look at other 250g tanks. With it being so long just wonderd if its going to heat up and hold a 225-250 heat. The pics i see on this form of 250 g tanks seems shorter . Thanks for your help

    With the RF plate in there it will be reasonably close on temps, but I would guess that you may have a temp difference end to end. Probably not alot but some difference. 

    As far as getting to temp, I don't think you will have any problem. It may take a tad longer to come up but once its there you should be good tto go. Several guys with the bigger rigs are using a propane assist to help bring the initial temps up. 

    Propane assist sounds kinda high tech but a common weed burner will work fine.
