I looked but found nothing on using old furnace heat exchangers for a rocket stove build.  This looks to me to be a perfect start to a great rocket stove.  It weighs around 80 pounds as is.

I plan to add a batch box to the inlet( where you can see the insulation).  I also will add insulation to the inside of the burn tube.  I may have to cut and re-weld the tube.

The "barrel" is double side, so it will also send heat to the inside.  I may add a fan on top to pull heat better.

What does everyone think about this?

It is fruiting fine. I want to prune it because I think it is going to break in half, or worse. I tied it up this year so that wouldn't happen. I will try to get a picture this evening.

Hello everyone,
We just moved to a new(to us) house. There is an apple tree I'd guess 15 - 30 years old. I don't think it has ever been pruned... The branches arch over almost to the ground. I am trying to figure out the best way to prune this tree. When? How much of tree to cut off? etc...

Also, I would like to take some cuttings from it to start a few more trees. When would be the best time to get the cuttings?

Thanks for any help!
