I built a rocket stove to heat my garage, and have changed my mind.  So, I am selling it.  I am located in CT.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but metal cores are doomed in rocket stoves. You might be hard pressed to find anyone on this forum who would want to buy one anyways, especially with a metal core. Sorry dude. Did you use a tested design? What made you decide against it?

Yes.  I built it from a you tube video from KSPREPPER1- rocket stove's measurements and materials explained.

No worries, this was something I tried; we are all here to learn.

I decided against it, because of venting it.  I don't want to punch a hole in a perfectly good wall.  It may be stupid, but I know my limitations; and it would be a big mistake.

Hey, thanks for the input.

Unfortunately, youtube videos are notoriously unreliable sources of information. Just looking at the photos, it appears that the heat riser could not be longer than twice the feed tube height, when recommended ratios are three or four times the feed tube height. Based on this plus the probably long burn tunnel, it would not be likely to work very well without a tall, well-insulated chimney. Also, the heavy metal construction would draw significant heat away from the combustion and diminish the efficiency and completeness of combustion.

It looks like the measurements of this unit are significantly different from the original's:

Would you replace your oven with a rocket oven?
