    Thanks, Blades.

    I'm still stuck on that mini mass heater I posted a while back. I wish I could find something similar.

    I have one in my pole barn, on my second one actually. The double barrel( I installed it recently) doesn't have quite the draft that my single barrel did, but either way they put out the heat. Granted I have a fairly good size, uninsulated pole barn. But it'll raise the temp 30 degrees in the dead of a northern ohio winter. I like mine, not sure if I like the double as much as the single but very cost effective.

    Iv found i get a lot more heat from the double barrel than the single. I usually use a free standing fan to blow the heat off the top barrel and even with that the flue temp is very high.Otherwise most of that heat is lost up the flue. I do use very dry wood though ,that helps a lot.

    I built my first one out of miscellaneous pieces and pats from my woods out back(no exaggeration) and drew from the hip. I made it "vented"to much. So I had the problem/benefits of the hot fire

    I made a MEGA version of the barrel stove out of an old oil tank. For a large building this baby really cooks, with all that large sq. footage of steel as a heat exchanger. i had to train 2 fans on the thing to keep it from glowing. burnt the zinc off the flue pipe.
    Easy to overfire these home made stoves,so sealing up the cracks is important.

    From your own signature, you should know that safety has no price tag.
