Hi guys, winter is here and I'm needing/hoping to get this thing built as soon as I possibly can.

I've been scouring these boards, the donkey32 boards, batchrocket.eu, youtube and just about everywhere else I can, but still haven't found what I can describe as simple easy to follow plans, with a needed material list..

So can anyone please point me towards some easy to understand plans for a PvdB 6'' batchbox core and riser?

The closest I have come by is this thread https://permies.com/t/41202/Emergency-quick-small-batchbox-sq...

I have found a supplier for refrectory and am rearing to go.. But just don't know really where to start ie how much material to order ect..

If there is no free plans available I would be happy purchase..

Many thanks

Marcus

I've recently made plans for a ceramic fiber board build of Peter's Batch Core available.  You can find it here Marcus.

Thanks Matt for your swift reply! I just watched (again) your video where you're working with ceramic fiber board 
  .. Nice job!!

A few questions regarding your plans please..

In the video you line the burn chamber with refrectory splits, would you still do that with your batch core? I was thinking of using 1400deg inslation bricks.

I can source insulative sheets of what I take to be a simillar material in 25mm and 50mm thicknesses, 1000deg celsius maximum here http://tienda.alfran.es/portal/categorias/aislantes/placas-silicato-calcico/0501. Do you think that they would suffice?

Does the burn chamber in your plans have the V shape floor?

Cheers.

Yes Marcus, the Batch Core is designed such that it can be lined with brick splits if you'd like to.  The V floor is absent as that would be created with the brick splits if desired.

The material you linked to looks like Calcium Silicate board.  I have no experience with it, but I do not believe it is the same material as CFB.  I would get on the phone and inquire with an industrial refractory supplier in your region.  Hope that helps!

Marcus - if you do find anything suitable, please let us know where from, especially if they will ship. I'm still having great difficultly sourcing anything and at the moment I can neither travel nor phone to help me find a source.

Yes I'll call the suppliers in the morning and see what more info I can find out about their product.. Is there anything in particular that you can suggest I should ask?

From what I can gather the V shaped floor is to keep burning material focused into the center of the burn chamber.. Is that correct? And as you have not included it in your design can I assume that you don't think it's absolutley vital?

Thanks Marcus

Yes no problem Burra.. Are you only looking for ceramic fiber board, or other refrectory materials?

Cheers
Marcus

Thanks for the links Satamax.. However the link to the batchrocket.eu page doesn't seem to address what I'm looking for.. Am I missing something here?

And the skp file I don't have the relevent software to open it..

The ceramic fibre board is the bit I've been having trouble with so if you find a good deal anywhere, let me know!

Just done a good search and have found three or four suppliers here in Spain... I'll call them all in the morning and ask if they can ship to Portugal.. :)

It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
