FUN!

That was great.

Question: They're calling it a rocket stove, but isn't that just a normal Russian stove/masonry heater? Maybe I'm missing something?

That is really great! I think the Russian Stove/RMH hybrid is a great design concept. Are there any good plans for building this?

This is not a hybrid rocket mass heater/masonry stove. It is a masonry stove named the "Russian Rocket". The designer, looked at the reasons the RMH is popular and decided the main thing was cost. So he designed a masonry stove of equal cost and performance but with the added goodies of:
-batch burn
-cook top (RMH can cook too)
-Black oven
-no barrel in the living room
-small foot print

The designer also showed some ways the same basic design could be modified to add things like a warm bench... In fact the top bell could easily be replaced by a cob bench similar to the RMH.

Please note! the Russian Rocket, like the RMH is not a legal kind of heater in North America because it is "Single skinned" and because it only uses fire brick for the fire box and not the whole core. This was done because it shows the use of about the same number of fire bricks as the RMH. (The designer studied the RMH both from the book and by being involved with a number of builds) He feels that since the build is "off code" anyway Code is not an issue. The RR has been lab tested and preforms well. The RMH makes many good claims but many things have not been tested in a lab. The plans are open and available from the MHA website... They may not seem complete to you, but are enough for a mason There is however a photo shoot of a build that while not quite row by row is close enough that I could build one.

The Russians used to be quite secretive about their rockets. At the SALT talks, Breshnev looked Nixon right in the eye, when he claimed he wasn't going to test any more rockets.

Hi Len, thanks for clarifying that. I still prefer the masonry stove concept over the RMH, so an affordable, DIY masonry stove design is most welcome!
