The reason i ask is i was thinking of building a gravity feed pellet stove/RMH to put in the basement in the other half of my building (i love the idea of a pellet stove that needs no electricity to run)

That auger chip cutting is a great idea, it looked as though it was making smaller chips pretty slow though. How long does it take to get say a 5gal bucket of the finer cut chips?

Thanks for the update. I have seen all your videos on the rocket heater as well as some of your others. I am ready to try a pellet grate myself as I just talked my step-brother (who is a stainless fabricator) into making me one. But it will be a week or so before he can get to it.
With the wider gaps in the grate don't you see more unburned pellets falling into the ash pit? Do they burn up OK there? How long have you had a continuous burn without problems clogging up anywhere?
I noticed you commented on ZeroFossilFuels (my original design inspiration for a rocket heater) latest youtube vid on his rocket heater grate/basket.
Do you think the simple stainless wire "basket" would last in the short run?
