H.J.D: I have knottiest that when most people build their 55 gallon wood burning stoves that they use the bung whole as an air inlet. Why would people take the heated air from the room and use it as combustion air why wouldn’t they put the bung in the back of the stove and pipe the cool air from outside for the combustion air and regulate the amount by using a gate valve? Any comments would be welcomed.
Fireman Jim: What's the link to purchase the barrel stove kit via the states? Mean.
Peter van Kampen: Chur bro mean, I want to bring one of these in, wish someone already imported them
Chevy Levy: they go good and very hot untill the oil drum rusts out [being left outside] Cast Iron parts will outlive me. But easy to get anada empty oil drum from local Garage, motor service stations for free. only take 1/2hour to cut out and then bolt in cast iron gear. cheers
MrBrentles: How do they work? Pretty well?
Chevy Levy: hi thanks for the tip. cheers
kak8chak: The leg are to short for a wood floor and you need bricks under the legs
Chevy Levy: hey far-out thats cool. thanks
Jonas van de voorde: did you know that "vogelzang" dutch is for "bird singing"
Chevy Levy: Kia Ora Dan. they available from ebay.com.au put in the search [barrel stove kit] they $48USD and the freight is astronomical at $155USD shipped to NZ. I only bought it coz i was loaded. not no more lol. way too expensive because of the shipping.I still have it but oil drum is rusted out and now is a glorified junkmail burner. cast iron is as good as new, just need new 44gl oil drum which are plentiful. cheers
KaeptnErdnuss: Hi, I'm in Dunedin and also thought about building one of these. Unfortunately the kits are not available in NZ. Where did you buy yours (you wrote you imported it from the US) and what did they charge for shipping? I also thought about a wet back system to heat a hot tub. Cheers, Dan
VicAus-Prepper: Thanks bloke, I will check out a few plumbing suppliers here in Melbourne, sorry bro I don't follow the rugby, good game but I am more a round ball person. HI5
Chevy Levy: yeh brutha. the 6" to 4" adaptors can be sourced at any big Plumbing supply Merchant. or just a disused/old flu kit.
Go the Melbourne Storm!
VicAus-Prepper: Nice job Bro! I am going to guilt one with a 30 gallon drum, bit more compact so I can use it inside my tent, next thing is to source some stove pipe and reducer.
Chevy Levy: great tip. cheers
theinfedel: you need the second barrel on top to work good other wise your heat goes out the roof
Bryce Xavier: firebrick and the right pipe for venting will go a long way.
Chevy Levy: Hi great tip thanks. it only sits in backyard now rusting away. great thing about cast iron it is good for 20odd years regardless. i'll mount it on a new oil drum then fabricate the fitting ur talking about. cheers
I notice when your boy dropped the stovepipe on, it slipped down over the outside of the reducer. To prevent creosote leaking down the outside of the pipe, you should get a fitting that drops into the top of the reducer. It won't leak smoke, and it won't seep gunk that way either.
