Cranked out a quick side project. Ive been wanting to build a new version of the pellet fueled rocket stove mass heater and since its getting plenty cold, I decided to get to it. One of the pre reqs for this new version is I wanted to build a traditional fire box for it so it could run on either pellets or like a traditional stove. So that got the brain re inventing some things and now it can be set up as a stand alone wood stove with a true combustion heated hot plate, secondary combustion with duel damper controls and double wall construction with ceramic filler. So this is basically a very advanced pack stove that ive designed the rocket stove into as an add on. This will also have an add on for a small bolt on oven later as well
So anyways I whipped up this design yesterday and set up all the G Code last night. Got up today and busted it out. Considering Ive built quite a few of these small stoves this thing has a pretty good burn time, I fired it up at 7 pm and it still does not need any fuel yet Its 1030 now. I have very good control over and can crank it down and so far it will sustain at the low setting.
So once I find time again Im going to build the pellet fuel reactor and this will bolt in place of the hot plate, revisions for this already exist. Then this will get the rocket stove tower, I can do this on this stove the way it is with out the pellet fuel reactor. This will most likely get a hot water heater coil wrapped around it.
