I decided on an extra inch going from 5x5 to 6"x6". See how that works, the 5x5 works well and works amazing with pellets, but sometimes with the wood you just need that extra inch lol

Well, Peter, if you happen to be around. Have you ever thought about a vertical batch? I mean, something of the right CSA for a horizontal batchbox. But squarer, and vertical. Door on top. A port on the side, of the right size, with the P channel. A V at the bottom. May be some bottom air instead of top air.
I'm thinking about this for the retrofit of ranges. It would be easier to load than my tiny horizontal batch.

according to the link the idea did not sit well with others at first. But that did not hinder smart people from creative thinking. There are people with ideas and I believe you should see your ideas through and those out of the box ideas are what pioneer new paths.
I checked that link also I didn't realize it was from October. I thought it was recent. I see max mentioned you in there also .
i have read about over fueling. why doesnt this over sized load of wood over fuel? i like the concept F Styles.

this stove is commercially made and UL tested so it can be insured.
This batch stove looks real good.
i dont think there is a commercial RMH with a water heating option to my knowledge.
a batch stove can burn for many hours as you can see so can my Rocket Mag Stove. I pack mine full and go out and work all day. the idea of any rocket stove is that it does not have to or should not have to burn all day long. one load packed should make and store enough heat to radiate your home all day and keep it toasty.

I am thinking of doing this Mag when my dad can no longer help me burning the RMH. I have some questions please advise:
1) Your giant feedtube is some barrels welded together, but that's too complicated for me to even think about. Can I use firebricks? As long as I make the feedtub big like your with the groove at the bottom for air and a side airway like yours, do you think that would work? Is any one already try this please let me know
2) Your airway has a fan, I don't think I can do that. Does it work if my is just an opening with no fan
3) so the bottom of your feedtube is not flat, it has a groove for air, how deep is this groove below the burn tunnel? the deepest middle point
4) Your heat riser is of full size firebricks or half-firebrick? How tall is your heat riser? it looks pretty short?
