Ernie, would this one still considered a RMH?
1'x1' 20 long Horizontal batch box, designed by Donkey, Canyon and Peterberg. 6 inch refractory clay heat riser insulated. No barrel, a concrete bell (french chimney elements) of about 6' high, and another bell of the same material next to it. More than half a ton (bout 700kg)
Hi Ernie. Thanks for the reply.

Well, when i did this post, i had listened to the podcast in, the morning, and thought it was funy. Anyway, this one is still outside, i've managed to stop the smokeback, so time is to clean the paint. I think the mass will be done in a bell style, with the half barrel system. All i can afford for the moment. There's one thing thought about this one, L tube not J tube And another one, i'm dreaming of using the next one i make like this for à forge
Yes and no. At startup it uses à lot, but the embers seem to last a long time. Let say the volume of two fireboxes for a four hours burn. May be a smidge more. But the output of the thingy is enormous. I think it needs a longer heat riser, well at least for the next one. And i don't think i'll do one soon. As i have to take care of other things.

but the topic made me curious, and then I couldn't see the pictures.
I think the Proboards thread must have moved, or we need to be logged in to see the attachments.
The YouTube worked fine, so I did a screenshot to attach here for y'all.
Hopefully one or the other works for most folks@
Does it burn clean, not smoke? That's the biggest question.
If the heat riser is insulated, and you use the heat after the heat riser (cook on top of that, or downdraft to a bench, or store it with a bell), then it could be a big messy rocket.
If the heat riser is not insulated, and you use it as an oven or heater with the heat only coming from the firebox surfaces, then it's basically a garden-variety insulated woodstove.
Well, this one is about two or three years old.
It's a batch rocket, built along when Peter had just released the numbers. The title was a kind of joke. Pictures are on my facebook, that's why they are disapearing, with their blady a.akamaid temporary server renaming the links all the time.
Now it's fited inside a hot water tank repurposed as a barrel. And is the primary source of heat for my old workshop. Check the green machine thread at Donkey's. Plenty of trouvble to make that one run right. And now it's on it's last leg, kind of, the throat being destroyed. Due to bad construction.
