    I got this and a Turkey burner from them. It is a simple stand to hold the pot and a high pressure pot. Melts lead very fast.

    Don't forget that some electric drills spark internally like a miniature arc welder. If you use an air drill you have no spark which is why they are used around airplanes! The bulk propane places usual have a vice made to hold LP tanks and usually will remove the valve no charge. Another place to clamp the tank is on a propane forklift or skid loader. Be safe in your projects!
