Hi all. I am Jake from Worcestershire in the UK.

I have been following you guys and your builds for about a year now on youtube and have built two stoves thus far, both of which came about as a result of the inspiration from witnessing your builds.

I had previously never worked with metals so my welds are pretty ugly and I still have much to learn.

Anyway, thanks to you all for all you have done on this project, my house is now completely heated with these two stoves and my gas/electric bill has decreased dramatically as a result.

Good job on creating the forum btw, great job!

Great to hear about your stoves and the reduction in your heating bill!

If you ever need help with learning how to weld better there are a ton of videos up on youtube that give great explanations and demonstrations.

Like you I struggled with this early on, once you get it down its like riding a bike.

Hey Jake,

You aren't a million miles away from me, I am in Rugby. Good luck with your build. If you are interested and don't own one already, I purchased a arc welder from Aldi....yep Aldi the other week. Specifically for this rocket burner, for the princely sum of £39.99. Great little bit if kit, has welded two gas bottles together and all the joints in my J section which is 100x100x6mm Steele box section!

Good luck mate.

Thanks for the welcome lads!

Ye, YTube has been great for welding tutorials. I bought an arc/stick welder in february but it wasnt until mid june that I finally plucked up enough courage to open the box up and have a go, haha.

Cheers Bezman, good luck with your build mate!
