    It really depends on the size of the parts, do you want to do barreled actions or smaller parts. The chemicals are expensive so matching tank size to the part will cut down product needed.

    right now i'm only going to do AK parts. I was kind of figuring 6x6x20 for the barrels, and a smaller one for the other parts. Does that sound about right?

    It sounds like you are able to make you tanks like I am. I made a small tank 3x4x12 and then two that are 3x4x34 that way I can do small parts and receivers and also be able to do barreled FAL receivers.

    The idea size is 6x6x36
    You need to consider all future park jobs.
    You might get a enfield later that the barrelled action is 34 inches.

    I just got a tank from hotbarrel.
    It is heavy walled tank. It is 36 inches long and the tank is not a rectangle.
    It is 3 inches at the top and 4 inchs at the bottom.

    You need heavy walled if you are gonna use OPEN FLAME.
    You can get away with the light duty stuff if you use electric heating elements.

    DrugRunR what do you call heavy walled?
    How thick are yours?
    I was thinking of using 11 ga which is almost 1/8

    Thumbs up

    I need a tank a little longer. I want to park FAL barrel and receiver together. You said you would make one. I got the video, looks kinda straight forward.
