I'm looking for plans or tips on how to build a J Tube rocket forge similar (at least in function) to the one in Wheaton's Kickstarter. Can anyone direct me in the right direction?

Eric, i'm thinking about it too. But i'd rather go with a horizontal batch rocket.

Satamax, I've never heard of that type of stove, but I'm interested. Where is a good place to learn more?

I've made one, housed in a hot water tank. can't remember the pages of that thread tho. I haven't tried it as à forge, but they're capable of violent heat.

At start, i had drawn thif for a L tube forge. It needs to be refined, and hasn't been made irl yet

Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
