Default Prototype SVO burner.

Goofing off in Quartzsite, I built a prototype SVO burner, sort of based on the ones that metal casters use, I picked up a cast Iron pot, made a hole in the side, put a 1/4" copper tube down the center of a 3/4" iron pipe. Copper pipe to drip oil, iron pipe to deliver air supplied by a $5 used air mattress inflator, after a bit of mucking about got it to run well enough to get the burner pot red hot on one side. Will build a mark ll to heat our hillbilly hot tub when I get home in the spring. will post pics then.
