Wow! What an awesome thread. I've read roughly 50 pages with the intent of reading it all eventually. I plan on finishing mine in the next 2 weeks, time
permitting. I have a couple questions, the answers to which I am sure I will eventually come across, but I would like to build this thing before next year. So here goes.
1. Does it matter if I use 1/2 or 3/4 inch intakes?
2. 3 or 4 intakes? I would rather have 3
3. I want to have the ball valve on a 1ft riser, just to be able to see inside the ball valve. Will this work, and has anyone seen a difference between ball valve on a riser vs. at the bottom of the drum?
4. My plan is to use 2" conduit that is 6" long for an exhaust stack with a magnet for control. Does this sound ok?
Once again, I have been looking for all these answers, and found some great info, but it seems I could spend days looking through millions of opinions. Thanks again for any help!
