Re: A woodgas stove, different idea for mixing secondary air

Hi Zelph - I definately agree that wood stoves are kind of pointless if you use alcohol to start them, so I'll do my next test without it. I found that this design works well without a fan so I've taken that out as well. I don't have scales to weigh the wood but in my next video I'll show how much w...

Re: A woodgas stove, different idea for mixing secondary air

The secondary air goes in the bottom with the primary air but it goes up the outside of the inside can which holds the wood. It mixes with the woodgas at the top of the inside can. The fan didn't melt with this concept. It melted when I tested something else but that was because the meths I used to ...

A woodgas stove, different idea for mixing secondary air

Hi all, I've just uploaded a woodgas stove video, have a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDb1s14SshU

It uses three cans and a computer fan. Would appreciate your thoughts!

Cheers,
Tim

Re: Compak Wood Burner

By oven liner I mean a substantial foil tray which you put in the bottom of the oven to catch drips etc, not standard aluminium foil. Is that what you thought I meant? I've had foil burn through as you said but the thicker stuff seems up to the job. I'll give it a test sometime. I tested a tornado t...

Re: Compak Wood Burner

The honeystove uses slots in the side panels to support the base. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrGr2z66a8U (skip to 2.55 where the assembly starts). Seems pretty stable to me. I do like the idea of a collapsible/hinged setup but the hinges do seem a bit overly complicated for a simple design. What...

Re: Compak Wood Burner

The honeystove http://www.backpackinglight.co.uk/product410.asp uses tabs but instead of slots, it just has tabs facing the opposite way, which the other tabs slot into. Pretty easy to make it that way at home. Hey, you could even do it with half of a hacksaw blade!

Re: Compak Wood Burner

I can't find a video of it but in Schindler's List there's a scene where a guy is fabricating hinges. Have a look at this http://members.citynet.net/sootypaws/Blacksmithing/hinge/hinge1.html and the following pages. On page 2 there's a dye which rolls the eye of the hinge, into which the pin is fixe...

Re: Am I the only Kiwi?

It's interesting, just promise you won't try doing it with half of a hacksaw blade - it's painfully slow! Ask nicely at a metal fabrication place and they might even do it for nothing.

Re: Am I the only Kiwi?

Wouldn't it be easier to fabricate a square version? One of my current projects is trying to convert a tall slim stainless thermos flask to boil water quickly by somehow surrounding the whole internal flash with fire. It was going to plan until after I cut it open to find that the internal flask tap...
