Quit a few years ago I made a Frank out of a Clayton Lambert blow torch.

CL01s.jpg 
Not content to leave well enough alone and having a FUBAR Clayton Lambert plumbers furnace I started seeing what would fit together and ended up with this,
CL02s.jpg  There are only two items blended here, the furnace provided everything below the burner cage and the cage and burner assembly came from a 228E with a bad fount.
CL03s.jpg  Another view with a 249 thrown in.

The tube came from the bottom of the furnace.

Real Detroit steel.
CL06s.jpg  Money shot!
CL07s.jpg  And another one.  I'm burning CF in both, I put the preheat cup in the new one because it has a straight pick up tube.

Thanks for looking!

That's a neat one!! Thanks for sharing. I'm not familiar with that style plumbers furnace fount... Do you find the furnace generator to make the lantern head wiggle around like a spring? Or is it rigid? Cool Frankie ðŸ‘

Very rigid! Even as pitted as it is there's still a lot of steel there.

Cool, I found a junker plumbers furnace awhile back with a center fuel bung that I'm trying to figure out a different kind of Frank to build out of it... Maybe a stove this time.

The big problem with these is the NRV at the bottom of the pump tube.  I finally found some ?Vitron? rubber that worked as a replacement for the pip.  Both the blow torches and plumbers furnace pumps are notorious for leaking by.  You can tell when pulling up the pump handle results in a hand soaked in CF.  Consequently, when the Franks are burning I pull the pump handle up for the first pump VERY slowly.

I've had good luck finding automotive O rings the right size I could cut and make work... Cutting them straight is not always easy but o rings are cheap ðŸ˜ I like a positive shut off myself
