  • Ideas....suggestions.......

    I have a 5' long x 16" dia x 1/2" thick piece of stainless pipe.........

    Give me some Ideas please

    I have used it as a heat riser and accomplished 1350 degrees F for heating

    Can any of you think of a good project , projects?

    I hate having something so incredibly useful, yet so unused.

    How about a riser for a jib crane weld a cap and base on it get a piece of I beam for the boom.

    Weld a cap on both ends and us it for an air receiver

        cut in 1/2 lengthwise and 3 sections can make you 6 bbq grills that will last 3 lifetimes! Sell it now, while summers coming
        Personally, I love the smoker idea!!!

            Slice into 1" rings. Weld rings together in different configurations for yard art. Hang loosely together for chimes etc. But I'm sure if you don't make a giant grill out of it, you'll be shunned by many. One more idea....Weigh it and pack it up.........estimate how much shipping will cost and time in transit......address it to me and see how close you get. I'll call you when it arrives. OK?
