Once again couldn't bring my self to pay a couple of hundred bucks for a red dragon weed burner and baulked at the cheap and nasty ones on flea bay.
I scored a free outside Lpg upright heater on the side of the road,got it home ripped it apart,used the main upright for the burner head.
Inside the upright heater was 3 meter gas line with regulator,perfect.
From the hard ware shop I got some threaded gal pipe and brass capp &  small gal adapter ,drilled about 1/32" hole in brass capp for gas out let.
Welded some bolts with the heads cut of onto gal pipe and used nuts to squash down the thin 12 cm x 5cm diameter burner head.
Got a gas valve some lpg silicon plumbers tape,an extra adapter for gas line and presto.
checked for leaks using soapy water.
Regulator capacity was to low [BBQ SIZE 2.5KPA] so I ditched it.
Painted it british racing green all up about $50.00,got the local lpg dealer to give it the once over and gave it the thumbs up.
It sounds like a jumbo jet and the weeds don't like it,[ better than round up]

Thanks Anniel,it's a scary beast,obviously I can use it only in winter down here.
I'd freaked a few people out using it in summer affraid
It is certainly a good feeling not spraying that poison around.

waste not want not,converted the left over patio gas heater into a simple basic wood heater.
Worked a treat [ it literally went up in flames while the original paint burnt off  What a Face Laughing ]
