Prob'ly works like a champ. Why don't you try it in your garage and let us know.
I will pass, but thanks for the idea.
I bet that thing really chooches!!
$350 for a large bomb? That's a good deal!
Nice , even water cooled,
I hope he put a pressure valve on it somewhere!!
He's got a 16 psi radiator cap on it. Works great except when boiling water is spewing in garage - then you wear thermal raincoats. That looks scary. I wonder if the heat output is worth the jury rigging.
There are suckers all over this world but hopefully none of them will buy this thing!
The sad thing is I know a few people who would gladly jump at that so called deal.
Beyond the explosive qualities of the unit, I'm missing something. If the idea is to boil water to charge the rad to produce heat, why not just use the barrel to produce heat and toss all the plumbing?
Interesting. Hope the FD is on speed dial.
Reminds me of a device I owned when living overseas. It produced something much tastier than heat and smoke. It had a condenser, rather than a radiator, though.
I want it.
Not as a heater, but for our annual 4th of July party. Put that out in the field, get 'er cranked up, Ill bet it would be just as much fun as a hot water heater that is welded shut... (not that i'd know or anything....)
Steam is fun when you are a half mile away
That's a real winner. Occasionally ill see some crazy set ups on Craig's list and wonder if anyone actually buys this stuff.
Hey, I just bought it and that thing is now heating my 14,600 sq. ft. mansions on three twigs a day. Too bad you guys missed out.
didnt we drop 2 of those on Japan back in the 40's?
