You could look around locally where they're puting in new homes and such. It may be light green, but painting is pretty easy.
Just stop in around lunch break and ask the foreman really nicely, he'll probably let you have it for nothin'. There may also be shorter pieces sitting by the scrap heap, that you can "relieve" them of during the off-shift (after dark) hours (not that I'd recommend that sort of thing).

i believe we do. im not possitive however. i work the heating end of things. i know we make some that are made out of 26Guage sheet metal however. what exactly is a bong cluster? this could be the first time ive heard bong out side of drug reference. lol. if its a crap load of fans all blowing into the same area... you may want to reconsider... you can only fit so much air through a certain diameter... esspecially when powered by pc fans. you could get a larger fan that is encased in a round sheet metal tube that will move much more air and be VERY simple to mount to a taper. they are made out of the same size metal pipe with one end crimped to fit into the other. thats what i would do personaly.

you should just leave it a big hollow tube and have the fan blow right at the ground. then tether it to the ground and put a skirt on it, and it will be its own hovercraft. lol. ok, when i wrote that i was jokin, but ya know, its almost worth trying. lol. it would just be tight to have your computer lift off the ground when you started it up

yea what im going to do is get a realy big res like 50 gallon or so. then im going to have probably 4 towers 4' tall the water intake is going to go through a sprinkler head so that the watter gets around the outside of the 4" tube then runs down over the WYE which will extend out from 4" to 12" where there will be a 120V AC fan 10" diamater blowing down into it and im going to have a cold water refrese so that when the water gets down to a low engough level it will refill the resivior on its own with ground water. should provide a well below ambient temprature.

yeah. we do. only problem is we only ship to select cities and stuff. what exactly are you looking for though? we have just about every size ever needed, or you can combine two if we dont have it, like a 12x6 taper (reducer) and a 6x4 taper or what not. also we have many different size wyes.
