    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.
