new to this. love your info. for our greenhouses, I'm considering 12" culverts for ducts. Is this problematic, or possible? I've considered maybe the diameter too large for heat to be efficient, the thickness in case heat cannot warm everything up enough, being corrugated shape for gases and their travel, being galvanized in case their is any bad chemical-type mixture, and finally, whether the ratio of sizes might throw the whole efficiency factor off, due to length or otherwise. I inherited these from a local construction job, and was thinking re-use could be good in this way. However I do not want to shoot myself in the foot before I even begin. If nothing else, I could scrap them for cash toward the proper material. Please help, I need to make fast decision, - in fact, today. Sorry... Absolutely love this place of yours, and have learned LOTS about EVERYTHING!!

Judith Keisling : One of my first jobs and the most important one is to introduce you to ernie and erica Wisner the Couple of instructor/contractors that you see in the video
I sent you to, they are off doing a back to back double weekend rocket mass heater RMH, workshops where their students will make a total of 5 I think RMHs, and
learn to make their own Cast-able Core to take home with them as the heart of the students next build at their individual home places !

They have been very busy, and absent from these pages but we do expect them back soonest ! In the meantime you can visit their site as long as you promise to visit and
Not shop ! go to - ernieanderica.info and enjoy !

Come back here any time, with over 19,000 fellow members world wide you can come ere 24 / 7 and expect a timely answer, not always as timely as today but almost
always in 24 hrs BIG AL !
