Put down your tools and turn on the computer!
Stove chat Live with Matt starts in just twenty minutes.

Its the 19th of August ... elk hunting season starts in 3 weeks!
If the elk are bugling then its time to think about your stove!
Wouldn't a nice RMH that uses 1/2 or less of the wood that you burn now be pretty nice???
Come join us at stove chat and hear all about them!
Buy some plans from Matt and build a riserless core or just build your own!
Either way Matt answers any and all questions you may have!
Hope to see you there!
Its only 15 minutes and counting now!

Last week Matt took a small vacation away from Stove Chat to catch the last waves of summer, but he's back again this week to help us with our builds and possibly show more of his customers design examples of how people are using this safe and clean way to keep warm, heat their water or cook their dinner this winter. Look forward to seeing you there!

Stove Chat 22 tip:  Do you know what Analysis paralysis is? Its actually a very common disease that affects budding rocket scientists from ever getting started on their builds because they get caught up analysing everything so much that they become paralysed and therefore don't do anything to even get started.

So if you are unsure about what to do about taking that first step or find yourself wanting to have everything figured out right from the get go and getting bogged down by it, this next episode could be for you.

Matt said last week he'll be covering peoples current builds and helping them get past this common affliction.
I emailed him just this morning of a build I'm working on and am excited to hear what he has to say.

Hope to see you there too!

Stove Chat 23 tip:   There are many questions that Matt gets repeated by many people and having to answer all the time. One of them is whether or not his designs can be reduced in size. Through the years, I've seen this question come up also for Peters batch box, J tubes, and RMH's in general, but I think Matt's answers can cover them all fairly good.

In my own words: The size it is now covers a broadly applicable function - heating, cooking, water heating potential etc. The number one limiting factor is the core.
When they start getting smaller they run into all kinds of problems and are much more finicky to operate, but if you are willing to accept a much narrower range of function, then smaller could work. Practicality below a 6" system goes way down. So the bottom line is, what are you willing to give up and how does the stove best suit your needs?

Hope to see you in the Chat today. Bring your questions so we can all learn together.

Come one Come All! Stove Chat #24 starts in just 35 minutes!

If I can't make the live show then I make sure to watch the recording that evening.

These chats are invaluable for picking up tidbits of information.  Things you thought you knew but turned out you didn't!

They told me a lot of worthless things when I was young BUT one thing they said is true.. You never stop learning !
