Decided to lay out the Valves and Dump Valve today. This way I could double check that they will all open and close befor welding them. Had to move one because the handle ran into the other one. Glad I just did not weld the rings one the tank first. Layed out the Baffles and figuring what needs to be welded first in the proper order. Starting to be fun now! Mark H.

the stainless steel and chemical grade butterfly valves make for very safe moonshine. and brass for the cooling lines for the condensor. looks like a first class still to me. and the whole thing made up to look like a fire nurse tank! brilliant! all kidding aside, very nice work.

I did pick up a extra 4 inch Stainless Steel Butterfly valve. Think I will put that one on first since it was only 21.00 on eBay! The blue one is Nylon Coated Cast Iron with a special Butterfly and cost 14.00 great deals if you watch long enough. Most all my valves are bought that way new, saves some big money. I got my 3 in ball valve for 13.00 and saved enought on that one to buy the rest! It is the little parts that kill you in these projects. Mark H.

It is going to be a 1,200 Gal Water Tender Tank for Fire Fighting use and watering down dirt roads also. When it is welded up it will take shape. Here ios a link to a few more pictures on what I am doing with it. Just another fun project to keep me busy. Mark H.
