Jb weld. I have one that had a couple ball point pen sized leaks and it did the trick.Leaky Smudge (not purchased from Low Voltage)
I have a few of these that we take camping and the work killer. We also go total white trash on occasion and fire it up in the drive way and drink beer around it. The fuel pot on it leaks a bit and makes a mess. I usually put a water heater pan under it and it helps but the holes are getting bigger and leaking more. Anyone know of any fixes? Its thin old metal so welding it it hard and usually makes more holes.
Has anyone had any luck using a galvanized steel bucket or any other recommendations??
Do you sell the bottom pans separately? I might be interested if the price is right.I have about 100+ of the good bottom pots. They are universal and will fit any smudge pot. When I first got into them I found an epoxy that was sold by pep boys called blue magic steel or something like that. It was rated for both diesel and the heat. Someone told me they don’t sell it in California anymore. Surprise surprise

I was thinking the same thing but wasn't sure if JB Weld would hold up with the amount of heat these things generate. I will give it a go...

Outside. I didn't want to deal with pulling it apart or the mess of prepping the inside.Thats the stuff I was looking at.
When you did the patch, did you patch inside or outside?
Whats the deal with adding a section, is that just some Heating/AC Ducting from Depot? Does it do anything like burn warmer or is it just to get the flame/exhaust higher up out of everyone's face?
I just add another top stack on top it slips right on. It does burn warmer as more of the metal heats up it also gets the smoke up higher if you run them turned up a bitWhats the deal with adding a section, is that just some Heating/AC Ducting from Depot?

Water in the fuel is the only thing I’ve seen that causes them to boil over unless your running more than 5 gallons of oil then I’ve see them get so hot they spit out of the carb holes.anyone on here know why mine occasionally boils . Once the damn thing boiled over, with flaming oil.
I've used primarily used motor oil with some hydraulic fluid and atf mixed in.
This one didn't come with a manual or PDF file for operation
or a warranty.
No he doesn’t he took them out inside an enclosed trailer on this trip.Does your brother drive a Ford dually? Saw a guy with two of them pull into a spot for lunch yesterday in OC and almost asked him if they were for sale... I've been kicking around buying one but don't make my way to SD or Havasu often.
