Default Re: Might as well get a thread started...

Broke out the MAPP torch and brazed the joint with JW Harris Safty-Silv brazing alloy and JW Harris white paste flux.

Use a Dremel to knock down the high spots and smooth the joint before putting the piece on the belt sander fitted with a medium nylon mesh belt. The joint is almost complete; just need to go back and fill in the low spots then smooth it out once more.

This piece will be placed over, then welded/brazed to the stock canister.

The 3/4 in EMT will be used with the same basic construction techniques to create the header pipe. Portions of the header pipe will be slightly more intricate but nothing that would be a big deal.
If it's worth building, it's worth over-building.
