Just checking if people think it might be worth making an RMH from this. Thanks.

Maybe a 4" system? I guess it depends on the amount of clearance around the riser, and whether it is wide enough to give you room for the exhaust to go out the bottom without too much restriction, depending on how you built it.

Yeah, pretty small William. Looks to be about 14" diameter? Really depends on what your trying to heat and what you expect out of it.
It could also be used as a small bench bell or even used as an outer form for a heat riser if you were thinking of casting a perlite/clay one?

Good idea on using it as a riser from a brick/clay base. Thx

Ciao William James/

Where are you in northern Italy. Any close to the french border? I might not be that far.

For me,  that air compressor  tank would be more valuable holding compressed air.
There are many scrapped cylindrical items that can be used in rocket stoves, but safe pressure vessels are harder to come by.
