Thank you both for the great advice and information.

I am finishing and tweaking the design of a cast 6" Batch box. I have the spreadsheet to determine the dimensions, but I have a question. I was wondering if the throat/port depth of 2" can be less. I can see where a longer depth could alter the function, but could a depth of 3/4 to 1 inch work?

I just discovered an advantage to aging. I'm in my 60s and have a reason to appreciate how eyebrows grow quicker. When looking down a riser and singeing your eyebrows, you can appreciate that they'll grow back quicker.

I've been down with flu, and ready to get back to build.

Here is what I'm considering. A 6" system, with 12" feed tube, 18" burn chamber with a 42" Riser. The riser is offset 2" from burn chamber and my thinking is it can help improve efficiency. This also causes the chamber to 6 x 4.5" causing acceleration (I hope).

Help my diminished mental capacity to achieve goal, or are you thinking oh crap, this guy is going to burn down shop.

John.

Got the proof about mushrooms and Ernie, I just received the email about the various products Erica is offering for sale.
One of the items is "Ernie's Chocolate Truffle Recipe".

I think Truffles are what the French call mushrooms.

“Purple Moosage” could still be traced back to mushrooms, Watching the videos by Paul, Erica, and Ernie it looks like Paul and Ernie are spending a lot of time in the woods.

As for your 275 gallon Rocket/Batch are you think stoke it in fall, and it burns until spring??

John,

Not all mushrooms are edible, and some that are should not be eaten.

"Purple Moosage" lol

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your response, after reading, I realized that I was suffering from severe Brain Flatulence (also known as brain fart). In my confused state, I wrongfully thought the book was referencing a CSA at the top of riser and barrel gap not the flue.
Your posts helped cure the aforementioned medical condition, so until the next flare up, I will keep studying.

Brian,

Your stove looks like a beast, looking forward to reading about your results,
I'm not sure but that might have been me you refered to about Temtek.
I did send an email, but had not placed an order, just inquired if they still produce the risers.

Being disabled from strokes myself, I don't have the resources to buy minimum quantity.
My town is so small, I don't even know if there is a store to drop off UPS. lol

Anyway, I was seriously hoping you still had some, but that's the way the cookie crumbles, or in my case the perlite refractory of my first attempt.

I guess I'll need to try, try, again.

Continued success with your stove build and rehab.

Brian Kopp, mentioned in an email that Peter and Matt were using the "Vacuum formed ceramic fiber risers" he found.
However, without more info I am not sure which Peter and Matt he is referring to.

I would like to know if anyone using these could give feedback.

The risers have an ID of 6 inches and OD of 8 inches, but do you still need to insulate around the outside of the riser?

Are the insulation properties sufficient to get the high temperature burn within the riser without additional insulation?

If it is easier to contact me through email feel free to do so.
