don't mess around with C/C in the house. play with it outdoors only. the gas created by adding water will make you sick. personal experience. :oops:

Good point.

Really hard to find around here also. I wanted to make a combo stove to incorporate oxygen and acetalyne to super heat 2 cups of water in 1 min. :mrgreen:

Zelph..Found a new pan today at the thrift store..1" height sides..super lightweight,8" nonstick,blue enamel outside(some scotch tape in the picture from the label),bakelite handle mounted with one screw(I might just change that to a knurled brass knob one,pack the handle inside!)..5-3/8 ounces from the factory..

Since you started a "pan thread"..someone may want a real light "stir fry" regular one..here's one about as light as they get!
