I would love to get a bulb or seeds from you. I don’t have a whole lot to trade, tree kale and collards, cape gooseberry, chufa grass, white sapote seeds, a couple of carob seedlings I started.

Curious if anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area has achira available. Thought I’d try here before posting a new thread.

i went around town to horse stables, i get quite a few free that way. real pay dirt (pun) was finding a chicken farmer at the local farmers market who was willing to save 60-70 bags a week for me. my 20'x25' cabin is coming along nicely and i now have bags coming out my ears. they are stuffed just about anywhere i can keep them out of the sun. the only downside has been dust from the old feed and some of the horse bags are ripped from opening with knife.

Ya, love that one. Its one of the projects that inspired me to try my hand at making a backyard tub of my own.

the grate as i have it now will not work for chips. im going to focus on getting the components assembled and tested, and then i will experiment with grate configurations. it is certainly doable, but everything else has to be in place first.

thanks. yeah, sheet metal is a bear to weld with the wire feed. i just hope that by the time i get to welding the components for the heat exchanger ive got enough practice to make a watertight weld.

here is an update on the progress so far. ive actually got as far as tack welding the whole system together (minus the heater core), ill have video of that soon. the heater core will be a bit challenging to put together, lots of holes to drill and lots of welding with no leaks allowed.

Well, i started working on my hot tub heater. im terrible at descriptions and i dont have much skill at paint programs, so i made a video:

this is an after work project, it may take a while. ill keep posting updates as i go. so far i have the heat riser and feed tube fabricated and tack welded, as soon as i get a couple of pieces of chimney i can test fire that portion of the design. the heat exchanger will be a bit of a challenge to make, but not too bad i think. cheers. jaime.
