    Think it's the photo, they look and work fine. A bit coarse finish though but this material was not amiable to turning IMO. I turned & threaded using carbide inserts.

    Sneak peek of some video projects. One is a custom BXA boring bar holder. Second is repurposed HF indicator mount for videoing. Third is a plate so I can saw short rectangular stock down from larger pieces for projects

    Your choice make it universally appealing, or just make it work.
    I can see a pic of it with a 3/8 rad in my mind , when I first looked at the pic.

    Not today but yesterday, played hooky from a 12 hr day shift at the refinery. While driving home from work Saturday the wife called breathless, asking how to turn off the house water. The 10.5 yr old ,9 year warranty hot water heater had a really aggressive leak that fortunately she heard pop. Lowe’s website has an “In Stock Only” feature in plain site. Home Depot website was not so friendly. Their loss.
    An easy trip to Lowe’s and a long Sunday spent doing the swap and finally getting the botched up hot water circulation system set up the way I wanted it. The builders did a horrible job that had lots of “Cold Water Only” parts and 3/4 to 1/2 and back connections. The door is 23”, the heater 22” but the builder put the furnace so far back the whole door frame has to come out.

    Nice job on the WH install. I'm glad I'm all electric.

    What is that panel to the left? Is that part of the ducting? Kind of dangerous having a gas burner close to HVAC stuff. The smallest leak could pull CO into the ducting.

    Just thinking out loud.

    WOW...

    I thought we had a tight space, but that is much tighter. That looks as if it violates the required "space around the device" for both the heater and the furnace.

    I just had to get the HWH replaced.... it was a 22 yo "State" heater. started leaking in Tuesday, let go with a very loud "bang" on Thursday. I had to have plumbers do it due to local codes.

    In our area, the water pressure is 100psi, and we thought the city might require a pressure reducing valve, but they did not, just an expansion tank (rated for 80 PSI max!!!).
