Hi John & all,
The kind of ducting I was referring to is the tubular corrugated stuff
(very stiff). I thought it was aluminum, but the guy at Vulcan said it was
stainless steel. Up until now I've been using 9" dryer duct elbows. Yes
Vulcan does have a good selection of metal, and you never know what you
might find there. I got some big station post insulators there last year.
Do you know of any other decent yards in the NY/NJ/CT area?
>Nice find on the OBITs.
Thanks. Our local plumber offered to give me any he removes from old
burners, but I really have as many HV transformers as I need. Still, I
couldn't walk away and just leave these OBITs lying there. They'll be
useful on a mini coil I'm building.
