PostSubject: Hello everyone!   Fri Dec 12, 2014 10:23 am

Hello all!  I just discovered this forum through youtube!  I am very excited to find so many other enthusiasts!

I have a forum of my own , (https://farmacyseeds.net).  

Anyway,
I have built several rocket stoves already, the most recent one for my new greenhouse. On my forum, is a full thread dedicated to the greenhouse build and rocket stove build.  However, I will share a few pics here... I think other enthusiasts will enjoy it!

The last 2 are a 48" x 15" x 15" firebox with 4" inlets and outlets. I think next time I would use 6", but they perform very well nonetheless.

Here's a shot:

I should mention, this model and the last one I built, also have twin 4" forced hot air ducts (convective forced) for forced air heat.  they work really well, and my lace is heated with one of these.  9 degrees F last night out... and steady 64 degrees in here!

hi reboot and welcome to the forums

greenhouse with a underfloor heating rocket looks nice as well

i dont suppose that you could advise on the heat that your getting inside of it and how much wood that you use to heat it up

also i believe if you was to post it in the lounge of the site others that have built a rs stove for a greenhouse could also place theres in the same post as well as well as members to post other greenhouse rs stoves onto the post as well

i have had an allotment myself and heating a greenhouse with something cheap to run and costs hardly anything to build is worth it for starting your seeds of early

Thanks for the welcome!

Yes it was a lot of work to build... but I'm glad I did it. I actually am a seed breeder as well so I intend to extend to full season and be able to do propagation / etc in the greenhouse.

I have been loggin lots of temp data (and will eventually set up more - electronic sensors with constant monitoring over a network) however, I just yesterday did the final tune-in on it. I had been having a few flow issues due to improper matching of airflow. However, last nights test confirmed what I suspected... problem solved!

I expect much better performance now and will be logging / monitoring very closely including temp charts. I am currently logging outside highs and lows as well as greenhouse highs and lows...
it has been a wood hog up until now... but i have been building heat in the thermal mass (total 528 cu ft of rock and sand) and its performance was definitely not at peak. I will be glad to share the info as it becomes available. study

It is a project I have dreamed of for years... now finally coming to fruition. :)

BTW, is tryinltohard here somewhere?

I just wanna say I've been watching your videos for the last feew days mate... and all your tech info is spot on.. :check:

I also love your attitude about the world, info sharing, and pretty much every other ideal I've heard you discuss.. cheers man!!! It really is all about open-source development and sharing!!! From free energy to rocket stoves to farming to you name it. We don't need the corporations. They need us... and they can't have my help. grin

Thanks mate!  I just decided on timber for lack of lumber or frame money...  once I got going... I decided it might as well all be hand made. grin

I love all your CAD designs...

What CAD program do you use?

I use AutoCAD Civil 3D.  I used to work for a surveyor / engineer so that's what I'm familiar with.


Now that the furnace is finally tuned in, I will be shooting some tour videos for my tube channel. :)
I'll share them here as well.

The difference is showing in the charts already:


Looking at the chart, you can actually see when the old riser let go..  it is evident in the temp dip starting around the 27th (yep, thanksgiving day)

Here's a zoom in to just December:

steadily gaining ground temperature wise...

here's a better video of 3d cad of the system:
