Seems that it had enough room for a small batcj may be. But i have considerations against the retrofit i've done.

You have to kneel to load. Need to feed often, ish. Because you can't make a big batch rocket. I don't know how it would work with a J. But you would still have the problem of bending while feeding. And the oven, in mine is useless. Not enough heat in the stream of gasses, to make a bell oven.

Hi Bacon;  That is a regular wood cook stove, been around for hundreds of years. They work great , some heat water, they all hold heat for several hours but that's it.  Definitely not a RHM although as max has proved it can be done.  Mine is close to 100 years old (so is  our house) works great, no water heater now but it had one in the past. We use it every winter , nothing like bread baked in a wood cook stove although i'm thinking a cob oven would be just as good.
