Pete I have an extra 1 1/2" Ransome ventury if you were needing bigger. Needs a head.

what I actually want is the head. I used to buy these flame retention tips from pyronics for about $25 bucks a pop. They were cheap and they lasted about two years, so I bought a couple dozen. I'm in my last one now and Pyronics no longer makes them.They declared Bankruptcy and then moved to Canada and became pretty uninteresting. It was just a thought.

About halfway down. Not $20, but, they're still in business.

(Although, if you bought a two dozen, used them one at a time, and they all lasted 2 years, that would be 48 years of burner heads meaning you bought them for $20 ea in 1964, which is more like $146 today, so those $90 burner heads maybe are not such a bad deal after all.)

George, you'd make a fortune selling LED lightbulbs. :D

And, what if I was using more than one at a time? Hmmm?

Thanks George it's close to what I have used and I've bought from Ward before. The originals from pyronics were stainless steel and did last two years. I suspect these are cast iron and will go in a matter of five or six months, but I won't get blown up trying to light them off. I would point out to anyone trying to use these things, and they are really handy, that you need the 2 inch NST ones or they simply won't pass a sufficient enough volume of air gas mix to get hot.

curious why you didn't use Dudley's heads or Wilton's. I've been using some of their heads for over 15 years with no problems. Have also made them myself that have gone in excess of 10 years.

I have used Dudley's. I've used lots of things. Metal retention heads are nice and loud and light easily until they don't. Sometimes I beat the living snot out of things.

I highly urge you to buy a spiral arts head. Eddie Bernard makes them and they are built like a tank. Solid castable. I love mine. Very quiet.
