Oh Boy, I'll say. Things like that don't just jump into my lap. Best of luck with your building.

So what are your plans with it? One long horizontal or are you cutting it? Are you adding a vertical? C'mon, inquiring (read: drooling) minds want to know!

That's gonna be one awesome pit!!

I would consider either a reverse flow design (a la Lang) or at least good tuning plates.

Here's a link to some good pics and info on tuning plate(they're near the bottom of the page) http://www.exit201.com/cyclops/cyclops.shtml

Are you going to use some of the round stock for a firebox or build a square one?

What is the wall thickness of that monster piece of steel?

ok,

It will be a reverse flow like the lang. The pipe is 3/8 thick!! and i will be building a firebox out of flat steel stock. i an thinking like 30" x 30" just so it fits with the size of the pipe better. I need to find some good temp gauges!! anyone have a link for some? I am working on reworking my cadkey design for this size of pipe tonight, i thought i was only getting a 78" pipe!! anyone think putting doors on both sides will be a benefit?

later

Check Out Spicewines site. He sells his signature Therms there. I just got a firebasket from him and a thermo to replace the crap one in my BSKD. I think I have a link to another site that sells alot of different industrial type thermometers but it's at home and I'm at work right now. If I get a chance, I'll look for it later.
OK, I have to say it.....Damn that's a beautiful hunk of metal you got there.
