It doesn't take much to make a rocket stove for experimenting. Go for it. Here are some places to chat with folks about designs.
Thanks for the suggestion, begreen. In my opinion, the folks at permies & donkey32 are too set in their ways. They tend to be old fashioned and easily dismiss change. Heck, I'm a less mass & round riser kind of gal and they still focus on square risers with huge benches.
You are stuck with me. I like you guys! Again, this is my opinion.
Why the "wish". Dig a hole in the back yard and get to work.
I will in the future. Right now I am renting a farmhouse which is limiting. I am also at the beginning stage of studying metalworking.
Obviously - you are not afraid to scratch your nail polish.
I like the idea of a spin to the flame in a rocket stove.
Did a bit of an experiment myself with a rocket stove/Swedish candle, drilled a 2" hole down the length of a softwood round and a hole near the bottom to meet it, made a great tall flame and think it lasted a bit longer than a Swedish candle with the usual chainsaw cuts. What do you think ? -
I think that after one too many beers, trying to watch that flame would make me tip over.
One neat thing I found with it was I could control the burn by turning the hole into or away from the wind
I had to actually google "swedish candle". Lol. I learn something new every day.
why has noone invented the Swedish Candle with beer holder attachment? Am I missing something here? We might even call it a Beer Holder with Swedish Candle Attachment...no?
Thought you guys liked cold beer
I have been thinking about it since your post and now I am going to try to build a tiny grover rocket stove pizza oven made out of bricks this summer. The build will be temporary and easy to put together and take apart. I have seen ones like it on youtube. I won't need any mortar and can use steel mesh or cast iron grates to reinforce the top.
Thanks for the push, man.
I am always willing to help push people over the edge.
This reminds of going to car shows and there is always that one guy...
