Curtis -

You built a burner powered by kerosene?  That's pretty neat.  Why kerosene?
I'd like to understand more why that's an alternative to good ol' propane.
I know the Bretling Orbiter 1 used kerosene and I've hear of a few other
instances where people have tried it.  What else can you share with us on
the advantages and disadvantages of a kerosene powered burner?

The burner was powered with kerosene and I had the jet too large(but thats'
another story) so needed to drill a smaller one  when a friend suggested the
dental bits.

Fly safe,
