Is there secondary air being added at the throat?

I really like that one! But have some questions to understand the build better...
Do you have an approximate figure of effective inner surface area?
The front and back wall of the arch - you just filled it with bricks on side and then stuffed the gaps?
Did you use anything to compensate the outward force at the bottom of the arch? Or is it so steep that it doesn't matter?
Is the heat riser made from clay and perlite mix or is it something else? It looks to me like that you had some form inside but then you removed it...
How long is the firebox from the primary air gap to the last wall? How long firewood can you utilise?
Is there something that you would do differently if one says: "Please, make me something like that!"
What are the dimensions of the bricks that you are using?
Few years ago i did a casted 4" batchbox with p-channel. I had a feeling like that it is kinda too small of a sistem to work well. Maybe i should insulate around the 3cm casted firebox walls... Looking at your graphs it seems that yours is working well!
And i really like this kitchen utensil for the door! These doors are the cherry on top! It looks like that the stove is saying to other heaters: "Look i can do it better with a casserole than you with a $$$ metal door!"
Thank you for sharing and i hope to hear more details about jamboree projects!
Note that this is the first time ever of using the "casserole door".

Question about these bench less designs. From watching Paul's recent videos it seems like one of the big advantages of an RMH is the idea of heating the person through the bench/mass instead of relying on heating the air and then the person through the air. But these bench less designs would rely on heating the air. Is that correct? I know the mass would still hold heat and slowly release it which would provide an advantage over traditional heaters. But I'm guessing that bench less designs may need more wood than the designs with the benches to keep people warm since you can't sit on the mass. Is that what people are experiencing with these designs?
