It ALMOST goes without saying- this is a Rocket Stove and is made to be used out doors or in well ventilated areas, much of the heat is lost to the Environment.
As built- to continue to use this as a cook stove something like a College Chemistry lab 'Fume hood' with a fan must be used above it and connected to a Chimney to
vent the column of exhaust gasses.
It also should be mentioned that this is still a Great improvement on the ''3-rock '' fires approximately 40% of the world still use for cooking ! Big AL

Thanks for your kind words Erik. To clear your inquisitive mind, if i remember it was 2or 3mm industrial iron tubing that makes up the elbow and main shaft, insulated with a layer of firebricks at the base then filled with purlite. As for the feed tube that came later and i did use standard stove pipe at first, but it has now been replaced with a thicker walled elbow about three years ago. I only burn dry wood and so far dear old "verti" seems to be holding up nicely no real signs of deterioration or corrosion yet. Fingers crossed for the next five years at least.
