Propane Burner

One of my long term projects is a foundry to cast aluminium, I intend to use propane as a heat source so I've been building a propane burner.

Still needs fine tuning, the picture above shows it performing at it's best. Unfortunately it would appear that this performance was at least partially due to a tiny piece of swarf in the burner jet. When I changed jets as an experiment I noticed the swarf and removed it. It hasn't worked as well since.
