PostSubject: 20 year wood stove veteran    Fri Feb 28, 2014 9:46 am

Hello all i guess for this forum i am a wood stove veteran using a home made (old fashion) wood stove for more then 20 years

i have been following the "rocket stove" world for a few years (and when i watched what was on you tube back then those freely giving to the world what they were doing did not do a very good job) i am so glad to have a forum for the future of wood stoves

i envision a time not in the so distant future when (not sure how to say this) after the rocket stove revolution that there will be a ban on old fashion wood stove like i am using now

i almost feel guilty (if and when) i ever put in a rocket stove that no one around me will be able to use the old ones that i helped them get

i think there is a need for rocket designs using old wood stoves as a base

ok enough ranting i hope by this 2014 winter to have a working rocket stove to replace my (i cannot believe i am saying this) crude old dinosaur

as long as there is light you can fix

i am in an israeli desert (and even lit my stove last night when it dipped below 4`C)

i am from Los Angeles so i was not used to cold but after the biggest snow storm in israel in 50 years (1991) i came up with the idea to build one. it took my a few years

getting wood is still a problem. SOO a Rocket design looks like the way to go.
BUT i am trying to get it to last 24+ hours as i cannot fiddle with it on the Shabbath.
or to be able to switch from wood to oil for the 24+ hours burns

Welcome, colder temps more than likely will be the norm in the future and not the reverse.

Shalom,

Do you have a plan or idea what to make or design for a unit?

Maybe find an old large truck and chop the frame rails up and MFG the parts for one from that??

I wonder of the IDF has old tanks you can gather some plate materials from??

Just a thought.

well in truth i am waiting for those with MUCH MORE hands on skills or computer models to lay the ground work for me/us
LIKE

MrTeslonian


and

tryin2lhard


you the old saying "WOOD HEAT HEATS YOU 3x TIMES AS MUCH"
well for me that might be 4x as i do not own a car so even SHLEPPING the wood home is a challenge let alone cutting the trees down

but after 20+ years of wood heat there is no going back

BTW if you are near Metzad tonight come celebrate with me as i make a annual SHEUDA HODAYIA   for surviving the tractor terror attack on R. Yaffo 6 years ago tonight

Yes I recall the tractor incident, both of them, incident yet was not in country then.
Were you part of it on Yaffo St??

Friendly Gaza send a grad to my location in Kislev 1 5773, Iron dome hit it yet was very low and KO'ed me. Most No idea how loud that is or feels like...
I keep shrapnel with me as a sobering reminder of the event. Praise YHVH for keeping me.

Anyway, It seems your entire project needs assistance in acquiring materials.
The design of a medium size stove unit may work or is your place bigger than 80sqm?
I like his last project of the Dyno V rocket stove small and efficient.
My project is a retrofit mod looks like it will be an easy task to do.
When I have the time I will post pictures of what I plan to do.

Shalom

Rob

i found most of my time was spent deciding what to build and its output of heat before i got hands on experience and even then i learnt as i built it even made mistakes and changed them after first burns

first off for me was build gas bottle rocket as a just incase
then i liked 2 versions of rocket stove
turbo rocket and the dyno v both being transportable

i have another gas bottle to build as well as a dyno v
but ive gained enough interest to build a downdraft system
