    I stopped by a furnace swap to see how Rick was doing. I was so impressed by his metal, out came the digital. Our guys do metal right at the job, we don't have a shop. He wasn't done, we will run a flue pipe to the liner



    Each install team can pull a trailer with a brake in it. Some take the brake out, others hop in the trailer.



    Here's his workbench. On a fantastic late summer afternoon, excellent working conditions. Beats the stuffy house!

    We now have 3 of those trailers, they are 5x10.

    The furnace is a sealed combustion 80% model. Vents like any 80 but has the capability of pulling in combustion air from another location, in this case the attic. The furnace is in a hall closet so rather than use heated house air and cause more infiltration, we pipe attic air in for combustion.

    And yes, the Pro is right, it is a downflow furnace. We gots us oodles of them around here. Where I grew up, everyone had a basement. I didn't know what they were either!

    Thumbs up trailer

    I have always liked trailers for a multitude of uses.I've attached tarps to the back of trailers for shelter from rain snow and sun. Always wanted to do what you have done but never seemed to be able to do it for some stupid reason. Do you lockform a bunch of metal in advance and then cut to fit or do you have a lockformer hidden from view?

    hey baldie

    I want to start making my own plenums

    Can you give me a list of all the tools necessary to make plenums.
    That looks very nice.
    Do yall insulate the inside or outside.
    How much would I have to invest.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Only machine we have is the brake. We buy sheets of metal, S-lock & drives and the boys cut & fold as needed. That plenum is uninsulated. In the garage we use reflectix type externally.
