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.
