I started to build a Rocket Heater for my garage from a gas water heater . I feel confident about how it's coming along . It's very satisfying and fun . Here are a few pictures of what i have done so far . The first stage is the dry fit , to make sure everything fits as it should before welding . I'm hoping to wire in a circuit to an outside plug in and run an extension cord .

A few more pictures .
