Mud has now built several of these and they are working great.  They have a ceramic fiber riser and firebrick wood feed.   Most importantly, the whole core can be shipped. UPS will ship it for $30 to $90 depending on how far you are sending it.  

At the appropriate technology course this year, this will be one of the things built.  And anybody throwing $200 into the ring for materials can take it home - or ship it home. 

There are still tickets to the ATC here:

A very important thing about this core is that it comes with:

   - a wood feed

   - a burn tunnel

   - a ceramic fiber riser (the best!)

   - a manifold!

This core can be used in three different ways.  

   - as a shop heater (first pic) - very fast heat, no mass

   - as a tiny house heater (first pic) - upper barrel is full of mass that is heated to 400 degrees

   - a standard rocket mass heater (second pic)

The last thing they were going to do was to list what the first 12 courses would be, and then list 50 or more of what the future courses would be. 

Click on the thumbs up for this post if you think that would have made a difference for you in supporting this kickstarter.

Send the coin.   It might take me a few days to get it copied and in the mail.   My guess is that you don't care if it is a jump drive or memory card.  Once it is processed, I'll just delete this thread.
The audio from one of the smackdowns mashed into a podcast for my podcast stuff:
