Welcome Nubs!  Glad you found the site.  It sounds like you have a bit of experience burning oil.  Yea, post up some pics and lets see how you are making that drain oil burn!

Enjoy the forum!

This was/is my testing heater, was not intended to stay but once the bugs were worked out it became 100% reliable. if the outside temp gets below 10 its runs 24hrs a day, building a water boiler for the gun this summer.

The picture showed up just fine.  That is an interesting looking heater.  Are those pipes in the back the exhaust?

I mounted the gun in a door, easy for cleaning nozzles, inspections etc.

 Can you tell us more about your burner/gun?
You can't put it on the internet if it isn't true!

I need to figure out why my pictures are showing up so large when you click on them? I post pics from my tablet on other forums without a problem.
Pictures just helps me explain the story sometimes..
