i get these service lateral jobs out in the puckerbrush here. i mean out
there enough so i'll ask permission to hunt it.
my usual gig is the genny & a hot box for pvc, alas my genny crapped out today, with the excavator waiting @ $$$$ per hr
long story short, the quickest fix was to use one of those heat wands the roofers use to clear ice dams.
fed by my barbQ gas bottle this bent up pvc quite efficently. of course i had to roast a few to get the right distance/flame/timing of it all
i don't suppose i'm the first here to stumble upon the divine revelation of fire.
