too bad it doesn't suggest other topics when i start one.
Horizontal feeding model, and need the extra heat that a 8'' diameter model would produce, hopefully I will never have to heat a house that large again !

Allen, you might not want one for a house, but what a nice forge it could make
mild steal red hot,- with just wood - they talked about improving that stove but as full as their plates are now I won't hold my breath ! big AL
Web4deb's (youtube name, I don't remember his name on here) pellet burner could be adapted to coal easy enough, you just would need to choose your materials carefully. If E&E can forge on stick wood, coal would be running hotter than most materials can handle.
and it had to dry out the grass from limp and soggy first! Around here Ice fishermen make up 5 gal pails into pocket rockets, coal would be interesting ! I can remember
when you could get 'pea coal' that would work in Rob T.s' pellet stove, but would probably burn out his grate ! For the Future Good of the Craft ! PYRO AL
did the pocket rocket last !
There are enough other people who are interested in pocket rockets so this should be a Forum >> Thread of its own ! PYRO AL
We got one season out of the drum and it was a pretty thin drum with no paint. If you found a heavy gauge drum and used some stove paint to protect from rust you should get a couple seasons from the outer barrel. Or build one out of a stainless barrel if you can find one.
The feed tube needs to be made with better than standard black stovepipe to last.
That had two I-beam shaped 2'' high ribs in addition to the placement of regular ribs, for rolling along hard ground! They used to be loaned out to farmers with
Maple Syrup Operations in the spring, I think that at least the outside was galvanized ! They disappeared out of this neck-of-the-woods, 50 years ago ! There
maybe one or two dented old ones hidden away in a neighbors barn! Good luck to both of us! I have already told 5 people if I found some that they would go
on a list - - right after I get mine !

drum for the stove or for the boiling pot !?! Sorry to be so thick, I am speculating the difference was in how far down into the barrel the air inlet went ! Most people try
to leave room to 'get more wood' in there and cheat themselves on Pre-heating ! With a good rocket stove a fan is never needed !

Be better if I had some pics of it. he can add more maple sap without interrupting the boiling process. Said he going to boil some lobster's in it this weekend as well.
