A Pictoral and Verbal Testimonial
The Quality of Work
No. 1 - Precision located fatique crack.
Pipe No. 2 - Precision bashing done but at this point only the nut
fits, no wrench.
Pipe No. 2 - Precision fatigue crack in lower left corner.
Pipe No. 3 - Look at the sheer beauty of that craftsmanship.
Pipe No. 3 - A second look at the master's work. Note welded fatigue
Pipe No. 5 - Fatigue crack masterfully welded except for the last
Pipe No. 6 - Extra unneeded bend supplied at substantial cost not
in approved design.
Pipe No. 7 - Asked for a 4" radius but big hearted Ted gave me
a 5" instead.
Pipe No. 7 - Another fatigue crack awaits the artful welding hand
of the master.
Pipe No. 7 - Gouge in critical gasket surface. The master must know
something I don't.
No. 8 - Precision located fatique.
Assembly - Consistent quality work.
Assembly - Just some amazing work.
Assembly - Note assymetrical thrust to compensate for high torque
Assembly - Assymetrical Thrust (A.T.) first theorized in prototype
Assembly - A.T. Theory - 3/8" left offset of right collector
plus angular deflection.
Assembly - A.T. Theory - 1/8" left offset of left collector.
Bends the left fixture limit.
No. 2 pipe has to be redone at the flange with 2 bends and a new
flange. Pipe should move rearware 1/2" for optimal location.
No. 3 pipe has to be redone at the flange with the specified 4"
radius bend and a new flange. The only finished weld was done so the
two pipes are not aligned. This will be sawed apart and rewelded with
the pipes properly aligned.
No. 7 pipe has to be redone at the flange end. The wrong radius bend
plus the fracture and the gouge in the gasket surface make it a must
to fix this pipe.
Pipes #1 & #4 will have to be shortened by 3/8" while pipes
#6 & #7 need an additional 3/8" to properly situate the right
Pipes #1, #4, #6, & #7 need to be lenghtened where they fit inside
Both collectors are aimed a couple degrees off center so every pipe
will have to be re-aimed at the collector end.
This leaves me with 3 cracked pipes to be repaired or redone in the
This is what was delivered to me for well over $5000. Don't even
ask what it took to get my my fixture and my 304 srainless scrap tubing
away from my friend and partner.

Geez Mark, That really looks like crap man! Sorry you have
gone through such a trial trying to get that pipeset together...
Just when you thought you were getting Burns Stainless Quality, you
were all the while getting JC Whitney style workmanship... Thats
really awful! If I knew thats what you were lookin for I'da
gone to Home Depot, gotten some Conduit and a Plumbers pipe bender
and asked you for $5K. Sheesh.
thats some seriously ghetto shiz for the moolah you had to dish out
just to bail...
