Re: Woodgaz UL wood burning stove.

that concentrater looks like it works really well. i might have to have a think on that. ;) don't forget about a taper causing increased velocity pressure while decreasing static pressure. ;) :ugeek:

Re: UL KittyKettle

i made my upper pot-stand out of .030 aluminum. the bottom edges are showing some deformation just from the heat of an alcohol burner.
i'd suggest you use .062.

Re: UL KittyKettle

hmmm;
Kelly Kettle sells the accessories that i made for mine.

the possibility definately exists for a melt-down. a fire-grate in the bottom of the pan would probably fix that concern.

Re: UL KittyKettle

you ok, RR? :o

i'd check that wistle/top for an obstruction. that's twice that the top has blown off. it shouldn't do that!

the Kelly Kettle instructions tell you, in no uncertain terms, that the cork must be out of the spout for heating water.

Re: "Wood Fires" Top Lighting Technique

I am surprised there were no "sparks" flying out in the air. The MK1 wood stove kept the sparks IN? other people have noticed this as well. myself included. it was decidedly not a design feature, but just a happy coincidence. :) maybe; just maybe, the enclosure of the stove keeps the heat in enough...

Re: MK1-UL

Re: "Wood Fires" Top Lighting Technique

well, thank you, Zelph. i'm pleased with your test results. the fact of the matter is that i designed the stove to be bottom lit. but your testing shows that it will do quite well with your top-lit technique. with the benefit of a bit less smoke. the minus would be a bit slower to boil; but who's in...
