    Thanks!
    You are correct!

    nice work,liked the pictures. i am planing on putting in my order soon. i see that you used his 1/4 " arch paper to line the fire box. i guess the box isn't big enouth to use anything else is it? do you feel that little extra insulation is worth his price, seem fairly expensive.

    Also wondering this. He is finishing my evaporator this week. I don't plan on buying the paper for that reason, it is expensive but would be interested to see what others say.

    If you plan on boiling on one this year you need to order ASAP. I wouldn't be surprised if you can't get one this year.

    I lined mine with arch board and splits. The last row of splits have a bevel cut in them to expose more area to the pan. Sides stay cool and it boils great.

    The arch paper is enough insulation to hold a bare hand on the side of the arch vs a bit too hot. My idea is that it will help extend the life of the arch. I'm 28 and I plan on boiling till at least 100.
