Attention to prevent this
dripping is neccesary because the hot molten metal drops can drip
on the burner or even worse on the gashose when swung aside for a
refill. For the construction of the holding post any piece of metal
tube can be used. The basket hovers about 2" above the exhaust.
I payed attention to the following points:
- the holding post must not obstruct the opening of the lid. Just
make sure and test it in various conditions.
- there must be a handle which doesn not obstruct the opening of
the lid. The handle should not be above the exhaust when in turned
away position because it is heated very fast and your protected weldinggloves
are not good enough to protect you from this heat.
- The basket should be connected to the post in a secure way so it
doesn't come off when the content is pulled out of the basket.
- place a cover or leakingtray unther the basket in its swung away
position. In this manner some possible drips of melted metal won't
damage anything underneat the basket.
