Hi All,

My 6" diameter vertical boiler is getting ever so close to steaming up! So now i need to turn my attention to fueling it.

Whilst the boiler is fundamentally designed for coal use, i see no reason why i can't use a gas burner in the firebox so its more controllable and cleaner. The inside of the firebox is ~4.75" diameter.

Can anyone recommend a) the right size burner as i am not sure if i need to fill the space or get away with something more modest in size and b) where the best place to purchase from?

I am based in Ontario Canada, but importing is an option if required.

Thanks

Thanks Mike - I was hoping for something commercially available but i will not rule out making something if needbe.

Did you do any kind of thread on its making? I see only a couple of pictures there....
