    Can anyone share an opinion about using bare copper pipe for an overheat zone (no electricity)? I need 31' of baseboard according to Tarm but I'm curious that if (for example) I add more bare copper would that suffice?

    With enough copper, sure. But it seems likely that the scrap price of enough copper would more than pay for the right amount of baseboard.

    burrman & ewd, those things just won't burn right with a bucket over the stack.

    Might extend your burn times though, hmmm...
