where can I get proffesionally made top quality steam pipe 4 into 1 collectors? and how much? I can make the mafority of the manifold quite easily but making 4 into 1 collectors isn't something I would like to attempt!

I could make them myself but at the end of the day probably going to work out better if i get someone to do the collectors.

Anyone who has done a steam pipe manifold tell me how you got on with it and how you built the collectors.

Thinking of using the 2.9mm thick pipe.

Liverpool exhaust. They would be happy to finish it off for you if you took in what you've already made... not expensive either

havent made anything yet, I got my flange plates from them very good prices, I want to start with the collectors it should be much easier that way and flow better if the collectors are cut in a jig, I have seen the difference a well made collector can make to power output and i see know sense in trying to make it myself if someone else could do a better job, just don't know who to go to, I will ring around tommorow.

Doing it yourself with turbo $1800, W/gate $800, head flange's $100, turbo flange $20,$150 cast steam pipe,$100 straight pipe...Just inder $3k...It pays to do it yourself Ha???

Add in my case $1500 for mig welder and $6700 for ac/dc tig welder... And heaps of angle grinder's and cutting discs....

Slightly off-topic.. where can people learn to work pipes and weld who arent in the industry?

Does TAFE or someone else offer a night course ?

Start with a decent welder, makes all the difference ;)
My father bought a WIA 215 mig welder with satelite sometime last year, and while its a little messy with gasless wire (spits a bit) its a great welder. Will burn in nicely, yet weld fairly thin stuff too. Was on it for a few hours today and apart from the odd burn, not a single complaint! Not sure whether youd want to spend 2500 on a welder if you only want to start off but :)
