    I must say i think the world has been ripped off somewhat with the main stream brands that were previously available
    no solder ,a guy did it on windermere on a generator i think he killed at least one ,brazing or weld

    Couldn't you just run an exhaust sealing tape around the joint? Looks like a good find BP, worth a punt.

    Did you use the seller based in Liverpool ? I ordered one on Sunday, expect to get it next week.

    I do have an old Eber exhaust silencer in my workshop so may use that and I will definitely be using kerosene from the supplied tank.

    Not strictly Fumes that Kill it is Carbon Monoxide that is the killer. Lets not decide quite yet that this unit is a killer before it has had a few tests. Mine will be mounted in the engine bay anyway and the air will be drawn from the cockpit above
    Only ever look down on a person when you are bending over to help them up.

    Surely a bead of weld around the seam would be easy enough and give a permanent seal.

    Should there be some sort of CE mark or other [ insert name ] safety marks ? Feels like those cheap Xmas lights that catch fire and set the tree alight .
