888mrshoe: add on to my previous post the Romans probably invented it
will not be putting videos of working fire on the tube because I don't want
my fuel source to go away or somewhere else my only fuel cost is sweat and
an empty truck
mine is built from fire bricks and does have viewing window but its on top
of feed tube with cast iron door from a stove clean out so it shows on
ceiling makes you realize not all fires are the same
888mrshoe: is it legal ,if the burgers in town halls had their way there would never
had been gas light let alone light bulbs,yes they work well,mine does, but
requires work, cutting,stacking, drying fuel, these are not for people,who
don't like the first bit, if you do,your gonna be warm,and be able to boil
on top of it as well.Barrel top between 150C and 200C when burning
right,fire chamber 600C plus Flue outlet temp between 40C and 60 C with
30ft of heat tube
karl De Pauw: i was thinking off a half pirex boll to be the window to look at the fire
would that work?
royalspin: Seriously ? after all that work ? Well thanks for sharing your build
anyways .I'm sure you learned a bit during the process.I'm going to be
building one myself hopefully before winter kicks in.Thanks for the reply.
iendhtj kiend: The stove heats well, about 10degrees/hour increase. Only some problems
with the chimney and draft on the first few days, trying all possible
combinations of flue shape. my pipes have never been above 175F where they
begin. There is about 30 feet of pipe in the forms, so they are warm when
they leave the house
pondman27: The missing ingredient! I want to see the flames too. Nice job. I look
forward to seeing the completed system. Thanks
iendhtj kiend: @slocar1 I can send you the plans if you want.
Franken Stein: holy crap is this illegal??
honkytime12: @lespaul49 I'd like to see those. firstname.lastname@example.org Great heater
Adrian Eyre: @ke6gwf (Just as you might consider using more letters and little squgiggly
thing between letters! ;) u mite get takn mor siriusly man... ) Sorry I Am
dyslexic And use a pc to help me spell and read. Sorry If that is a problam
Logan Jonker: @lespaul49 Brilliant!
the1969info: how well did this stove heat up your place? have any problems with it? how
hot would you save your pipe would get up to? Its a good video, nice to see
DengarTime: Thanks for this video of the stove, It is one of the best so far for
actually showing a "complete" stove and how it goes together, been looking
for one of this style for awhile.
Marialla: @lespaul49 Genius!!
johnjmw1: That is just great! Thanks again for posting this.
penguinistas: @DCVU2 The fire needs oxygen for combustion. If the stove's air supply is
coming from inside then warm air is being pulled out of the room and going
up the chimney creating a vacuum that pulls in cold outside air making the
house colder. A conventional fireplace can have an efficiency of -10%
(negative) because it's pulling in cold outside air to replace the warm air
lost up the chimney. If instead, outside air is used for combustion then
the warm inside air is not pulled up the chimney.
iendhtj kiend: yes, it was finished a few weeks later, but destroyed about two months ago
because it was my grandparent's house
iendhtj kiend: the most important thing I learned was that despite not building the burner
and riser correctly which caused it not to draw well. Adding a chimney just
above the roof line makes it work nicely, so try that if you have trouble
and need a very quick solution on a cold day!
linuxxxunil: way too much smoke. other stoves on youtube have zero smoke practically. e
nlechm25: Can i get a copy of the plans you used?
DCVU2: @penguinistas I get it now, I'm a bipolar on meds, I want to build my own
rocketstove mass heater, there is 8in of snow outside and the bills are
killing me. So, how do you get outside air to the thing?
iendhtj kiend: I went to the resell store and got a $1 pyrex dish (about 9x9)..........but
I tested it over a hot fire outside to make sure it would be safe, also set
it back about 3in. from where the front brick would go normally thanks,
royalspin: Where was the narration and explanations ?? Excellent build so far,I would
like to see the finished product.I'm assuming since this was from 2009 that
your finished by now ?
TheDavedickey: can you send me plans for this i would like to build one like this
cdimmm: Very cool with the window.
wai president: I like the fact that you can enjoy the view of the fire, will the glass get
smoke and get dark, if so how can we clean it? I been trying to build one
that I can see the fire. please reply to email@example.com, thanks
slocar1: I was wondering why you didn't use the existing flue outlet at 1.20 which
is smaller in diameter and why was it necessary to use such large diameter
exhaust/flue pipes. The bend at the end of the flue pipe could have been
better positioned by being placed facing away from the window, as directed
towards the window, there is a real danger of exhaust fumes flue gases re-
entering the dwelling and also risk of heat damage to window panes.
ke6gwf: Just a thought, the windows in wood stoves are up close to the fire so they
get hot enough to burn the soot and creosote buildup off the glass. I will
wager that being that far away, it will be cold and any gases that make it
over there will condense and soot it up pretty bad. I may try it if I build
one, but I would make it easy to reach or remove to clean! ;)
J Gybl: I Like this design. Your innovative use of the block glass is great
thinking. (why didn't i think of that type stuff) & how yo have the radiant
pipes tripple stacked your room has got to be WARM and COMFORTABLE!!!
thanks for showing-gonna try one myself.
marshgre: WOW and the exit gas is so cool you don't have to worry about the shopping
bag touching the pipe at 1:30. Cool.
penguinistas: Nice looking rocket stove heater. As a thought for an improvement, you
might consider having a pipe to supply outside air rather than suck out
warm air from the house.
Adrian Eyre: @ke6gwf It wont soot up as it not a normal stove the air is sucked down and
in past the window and on to the flames the hot air/gas then gos up the
flue. The smok and hot gas then ignites in the flue. if it is all working
good and set up well ther will be no soot no smoke just steam and co2 and
mabe a bit smoke
iendhtj kiend: Not in this house. In a city I'm sure it would be though.
mycomama: I dig the window for the flames , let us know who well that works and if it
gets all sooty. I think I might like to try it like that too.
penguinistas: @DCVU2 For a simple diagram watch this video: "Ideas for homemade stove and
heater. Pt. 2" by trailkeeper, video #: R7Us7TndwE8 It has a "Input Cool
Air Pipe" vent on the bottom and the chimney exhaust vent at the top. The
air comes in from outside, is preheated by passing along the underside of
the combustion chamber, is then used in combustion and then goes up the
malayrojak: @lespaul49 If the pipes are never above that temperature, you ought to
watch out for creosote buildup. I am not a professional chimney sweep by
any means but just mentioning it as a safety precaution. You don't your
place to burn down do you? Peace.
iendhtj kiend: Thanks for the positive vibes. I think that it didn't perform well because
of the distance I put between the glass and the horizontal burn tunnel, but
I was scared of the glass getting too hot. You may want to use actual stove
glass and move it near the flames as the front bricks are in the original
design. Adding a tall chimney that goes nearly to my roofline cured the
back-draft I was having.
johnjmw1: What was used for the window? Love that some one has fixed the one thing
these stove were missing!
ke6gwf: @adus123 Like I said, "if any gasses make it over there". When the fire is
first being lit or for any reason has draft issues, hot unburned gasses
(the window is before the combustion area, so any that reach the window
will still be full of gunk) may swirl back and condense. Also like is said,
I would like to try it, I was just making sure it was considered. Just as
you might consider using more letters and little squgiggly thing between
letters! ;) u mite get takn mor siriusly man...
