I got it going today. Put the fire to it. First try got it going. Second try was better. 3rd time was a charm, got a video of it.

Look at this fancy one I found on youtube. I included it here so I can see the burner design. Need to make one for mine.

That's awesome! look how much power it has. You can see the frame of the fan bending where it's attached. Very nice DIY project. Not for me though, stoves are my obsession :lol: :oops: :mrgreen:

I got a hunch the fan I have can run on 2 tealite candles.

I'm tempted to get the small one that folks are putting on top of their wood burning stoves. I don't have any extra funds. Santa knows I've been naughty so I have to go without :roll: Unless.......I find a used one on ebay :mrgreen:

This is the one I'd like to have
