    Anyone have any ideas where to buy boiler doors? It wood be nice to have the frame and doors to mount as one unit.
    thanks

    Welcome!

    I have had best luck finding misc. doors at the dump/transfer station and scrap metal yards. Now I suppose you would have luck on craigslist.

    I guess I need to go dump diving soon. I have built doors for a previous project but I thought it would be easier to get some premade, since I have not started on the boiler itself, I could build it to fit the doors.

    I built a downdraft gasser in the past, was worried about smoke. I bought some land (hope to move is a year or so, bad time to sell a house) and there is no need to worry about it anymore. I am going to build a concrete block
    stove with water tank sitting on top. If I super insulate and keep combustion temp high enough and plenty of water storage, it should no smoke to bad

    I will have a look.
    Here's a link to a sawdust burner built years ago. They bought the rights to continue producing these.
    I believe they can also make castings to you liking.
