FLASHBACKS! not the groovy 60's!

Hi all!

Im in need of some cross board support.

I just finished up with an aspiring young bender that has tons of promise to WoW people with his skill. The thing is he wants to hit the door running full speed and is in the process of putting a small plant together.

I have started helping him with torches and eventually I will help him on a choke and bombarder once I find a larger replacement for my repair system.

The problem is that he has done the Craigslist deal and purchased a used "shop built" BRASS manifold after being warned of the metal. The guy that sold this to him preached that it was safe. Included in this preaching the guy challenged me by telling him I was too young to know anything and was wanting him to spend more money on a glass one.

Im in kinda a hope stage that other benders could just give a little insight on here to help the "safe" sway on not using that brass POS. I just wish there were stats of injuries involving metal manifolds.

I may just give him my repair manifold (SVP) as an X-Mas gift if it helps.

Much Appreciation Guys & Gals,
D

Post the horrors if wanted, He NEEDS to know!
