Bill, how about a variation of a rocket stove rigged to burn wood or propane?

Nice idea but I need something prebuilt, I don't have an electric welder, just Oxy-Act. Actually the small stove market is a little disappointing.

Guys,
Another snowy sunless day and colder.

Onward.

Got grandpa's table saw fired up. Ripped down the 2X6's





The lumber is all salvaged, cost...zero.

Framing tomorrow.

I'm not sure how solid these stoves are, but they are made for winter camping in canvas tents and they're probably within a couple hours of you (Solon Springs):

30 mile ski race? You can only be talking about the Birkie. What wave are you in? I grew up in that area.

Great build thread!

The problem with those tent stoves is that if you overload/heat or use them on a long term basis is that they warp and start leaking smoke.

sure, I was wondering that. How about this:

Less warping issue since it's titanium and can take more heat. Not sure I'd want to pay that price.

I know an old timer in Maple, WI that builds stoves. He made my dad's sauna stove. It's really nice. Maybe custom is the route to take, or build your own?

Grandpa's table saw..... So is mine altough it does not have such mobility, I did move it 4,000 miles. No way I'd part with that.

Oxy-acetylene, that could get you started on a stove. And me too but then I'd take the parts in for a proper welding job, I could braze that but would be expensive on the brazing rods.

I went and stole the pics anyway to show someone else "in the know", he used to build stoves until the regulations/certifications made that too hard.

But from what I know, looks like this guy cuts the tank to accomodate the plate end even uses the part he removed to build the base. There should be a baffle under the stove pipe so the heat/flames don't all climb up the chimney. Will talk to my friend about that in the next few days.

H96669,
Nice looking stove and it would work...be nice if it took 16 inch wood at least, 18 inch is better.

Thanks for your help.

Now for words of wisdom.



The framing crew gathered around the fire...



Going a little deeper...



Progress.



Advantages of a fire.
Guinea hen.



Supper.



With a little luck the wall will stand tomorrow.
More snow is on the way.

I bet there's a story there!
I could never get mine going fast enough to get it airborne, was a hill involved, or rust?

Both and plowing snow...my driveway is a half mile long up and down hills.

It has claimed many...a UPS truck was the best.
