PostSubject: first build   Mon Apr 06, 2015 4:54 am

Just having a mess around with some box lying  around.

Making a basic j shaped stove for the garden,  quite heavy 5mm 100 box    thought i could experiment  with adding something to create a vortex at the bottom of the box riser.

Also  going to make some module  units to fit on the top for example  open burner,  hotplate,  and a basket  containing lava  rock for bbq.

Having fun

Barron

Thanks gadily, I have seen this stove before, its just oozing great workmanship.

I am a complete beginner with metalwork including welding so a steep learning curve.

im going to halt you for a while so hear me out here if you dont mind

are you looking to keep adding wood often or would you be more interested in a longer burn time

as i followed ppottys build due to i wanted longer burn times vs loading times

http://woodstoves.forumotion.co.uk/t219p15-start-of-my-rs-build

you will notice i got a vortex within a 4" square tube

http://woodstoves.forumotion.co.uk/t302-rs-vortex-testing

your using arc i could never get used to the length due to nerves kicking in however shortening the rod able me to do the welding with it much better

http://www.mig-welding.co.uk/arc-tutorial.htm

http://www.mig-welding.co.uk/learning-arc.htm

mig welding is much easier to do

heres another site link for you to view

before you go any further retest using an 1" x 1" box section just enter into the vortex tube with the 1" x 1" tube

my test was done using the 1" tube and has a dual flick one where yours is and 1" rise at the back as i estimated the fire so it would rise enough with bounce on the square tube per side more used as an aid

I would build it with a box on end of it than using a 4" square tube as i get over an hr with burning soft wood in the firebox

Hi Gadily,

Thank you for the advice, at the moment I am happy just to feed this one as its staying outside in the garden, as you mentioned a fire box for a longer burn is more practical if longer periods of heating are required without attention.

I have enjoyed putting this together, For insulating the burn chamber and riser I was thinking of attempting to bend some 1mm steel and make a jacket filling the void with vermiculite.

Carried on with a few modifications,

at the bottom of the square riser i have some stainless sheet rolled around as a lining reaching half way up to help the vortex, also in the burn chamber I have a sort of ramp coming off one wall to give the gass a flick into the chamber and finally have some primary air going to the back of the burn with a bit of the feed tube sectioned off.  As you can see the stove got very hot after 5 / 10 mins.

The box used was heavy 5mm so I think after adding a insulating jacket it will have to stay put in the garden should be great with a grill top on.

id also advise using a bit of stainless steel within the firechamber all around it like an insert this will have the effect of making it hotter as well

id actually be looking to change that using the vid shown above as a hot plate a feature within the garden with extra uses as well

heating and a cooking top that also has clean air whilst its being used

yes i can see the vortex within the tube as well nice build there

Barron welcome to the club man, I think you did great having to learn how to weld.
I was in the same boat when I built my first one!
Congratulations on your build!
