I was very disapointed in the cheap wire tomato cages I bought from the Big Box Store this year. They blew over in the wind and were a bent up mess by fall and several had wires broken off. So next year it's back to the drawingboard.
What I have in mind is to make cages out of EMT(1/2" Conduit) 10 ft sections bent into a U and set them over Rebar driven 2 ft in the ground. They should last for many years.
I do not have a torch that would braze them up and find myself waffling.
Between an Air Acetelene Torch or going to a full blown Oxy Acetelene torch.
The Air Acetelene would be less expensive(one less bottle to maintain) to set up but not as versatile.
Those of you Brazing, What's your set up and What do you reccomend.
Can you shoot any holes in my plans?
(Yes I know Galvanized presents problems, but I've figured out how to minumize that by sanding off the Galv. and working in a well ventilated area)
I'm also interested in whether any of you are using or are considering alternative fuels, with the current Acetelene Shortage.
