These are the ones listed for pike county il. Not all of them overlay so you have to try a few and see what works.

I just use the free look, not sure what you get if you pay for it.

Thanks a lot Sudden....that was fun looking at all the maps at those locations. I found a valuable piece of information in Marion county. The free overlay feature was fun to see how it worked. You could fade the overlay in and out. Really was a nice feature. I sure do appreciate those links and will use them again. I generated some paper work while visiting...copied some maps and notes, links etc. :D You're in PA right? My brother lived in Elizabeth, out in the rural areas. He introduced me to metal detecting while I visited out there. Got me hooked on it :lol: Bought another "Whites" detector last year for my wife so we could shoot coins together.

The nice thing about the drums is the amount of holes. They allow plenty of oxygen to enter evenly around the entire perimeter of the stove.

It's a nice challenge to get the drum red hot all over :o :P

Looks nice and healthy to me :D
Make a 2" diameter air column up the center with perforated steel something or other :mrgreen: or make it in the shape of a triangle tube. Raise the drum up so air can enter underneath to the center air tube. Once in a while stir the pellets to get the unburned ones up where there is some air. The center tube will help a lot.

Make the tube out of 1/2" hardware cloth. Make it a two layer so the wire over laps to make it a 1/4" mesh..you know what I mean :mrgreen: Just so it's harder for the pellets to fall through. Try it, then let us know how much better it burns :mrgreen:

Made the tube diameter 4"...live on the wild side :lol: The more air the better.

Right now it's too warm in my greenhouse to burn pellets. Maybe about 5:00pm ;)

Excellent photos!!!!! thank you a bunch!!! :DBfire:

One good swing of a pickaxe will make a nice hole as starters :D Maybe not, don't know what the bottom looks like. Is there a flange on the bottom?

Someday when I get a drum I'll put a hole in it with my pickaxe :mrgreen:

I burned pellets in my Pyromid, got a video made but lost internet connection last night :? Paid my bill today and it's back on????? what????? I thought it was free with tv service :lol:

The more I think about it, the more I find it totally scientific. And why is that :o

1. It burns clean....and why? :?: Upside down, top lit ;) ; First one I've ever seen....and I thought I've seen them all :DB:

2. Has an inverted drafting system...how cool is that ;)

3.In warm weather the long flue pipe will have a natural draft occurring.
