Back here now the weather is cooling off, but i have a question
« on: September 30, 2012, 01:30:11 pm »
ive made me a heater, got the resevoir running at 90 degrees centigrade, but without a nozzle heater it wont stay lit easily,  if i blowtorch the feed pipe it bursts into performance, but where do you guys get your cartridge element from, and did we work out wattage??? oh and what dimensions are they

Nik,
 ckBurners has one $40, http://www.ckburners.com/kits.html I don't how pricey it would be to ship to the UK.

Nik,
Without tearing mine apart I'm guessing it was about 1/4" or 5/16" diameter and close to 5" long and somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 watts.
