Did this video help you?

TheCpotter123: @ppeek2 wow you are way rude,,,,hes my family and family is everything and you need JESUS fella,,,Ill pray for you,,:)..

Josh Bryant: yeah im finding out that i need to stand the barrel up instead of laying it on its side. when the fires get big enough to produce heat they smother themselves because the stove ceiling isnt high enough when i fill the can full of wood to let it escape thoroughly enough. when i cut off the air it helps

clcs13: do have a vid of it working

Josh Bryant: @kanekhoyt i have a trap door on the inside of the shop that lips down when its not lit

Phillip Galey: @winnabego Always drawing in freezing air makes for most uncomfortable nights, the cold air like a 2 foot thick blanket, spreading across the floor. The best intake runs a tube from the roof, inside the stack, and down through the stove, and out, to be regulated in intake to the burn; it burns hot enough that, there's little or no smoke, . . . and no fan, the stack suction, producing a good intake vacuum, . . .

charlie brown: the hole will let to much air in than you will over fire your stove it will probablyturn chery re

Alex W: my only concern is the fan mounted so close to the heat source. having flutes on the outside of the water heater would give the cold air intake something to circulate around. like the heatsink on a processor :P if you had an additional hole under the workbench that would draw air into the drum, you could circulate the indoor air, instead of always drawing in freezing.

Josh Bryant: @cdltpx cool ill check it out

electronicdawg: Plus you need a damper on the chimney, looks like 6" you can pick up at your local hardware.

Josh Bryant: @thinkyourright lol. its ugly but effective

Kane Hoyt: How are you going too stop cold air from coming in the garage when the stove is not lit?

Phillip Galey: @justkeepinitrealyo The vertical designs greatly simplify ash removal; and, because they burn hotter, there's less of it. Also, because of the type of steel, and thinness of it, the barrel stoves are not at all long-lived, . . . The old large commercial gas cook stove tops were cast iron; recently, I bought one off a junk truck, and then also, one of the newer mild-steel tops. With enough metal mass as a heat sink, at night, you won't have to rely on choking the fire down to a low smokey burn

Josh Bryant: Actually were smart enough not to run the thing when we're not out there.. we dont keep it runnin over night stupid.

Josh Bryant: yeah i gotta get my door to where it seals better. it burns a stove full of oak scraps in like 30 minutes. still a work in progress. thanks for the input

EdmundSquid: Honest critique: Your door doesent seal well enough and your air inlet in the bottom is going to let hot coals fall out the bottom, you should also put a damper on the air inlet AND one on the chimney. This will allow you to control your air flow and combustion. This save you lots of wood in the long run. Also heat is bad for electric motors. you should have your fan motor of to the side of your stove not on top.

Josh Bryant: @chickenbonewatt works very well. but i do need to make it more airtight because its burns through wood real fast

Ricky Ricardo: Yes I'll agree with that its your 1st attempt. What a sad looking thing..

Robert Hensley: should install a fan in the duct that way its pulling the heat from the unit and then pushing it into the building. If you put the fan at the front, you will have a lot of back pressure and lose pretty much all the force the fan puts out. Heat will simply blow back out past the fan. Not to mention how hot the fan will become sitting directly over the barrel.

YellowRMZ250: LMS. little man syndrome.........that is hilarious. ill use that at work tomorrow

carvinrigged: Hey Dude ! Great idea ! I think if you put a cold air return from your shop to the stove as low as you can go the gravity feed will work well. The rising heat will be forced into the shop. Cool air from shop floor will feed the stove. Also if you cover and insulate the stove it will be very efficient. Keep tinkering,you'll get it. Mine is a waste oil burner and I love the free heat. You got a keeper, don't mind the dipstick critics on here ! Good day and God Bless you and yours !

Jon Evans: @NewportHillClimber it mite take away from the heatin capabillity a bit, but id rather have a warm swoer than a roastin hot room any day

Josh Bryant: @73roadrunner1 LOL

Josh Bryant: @firewoodguy2009 nah it was only inside at this point because i was still building it. its mounted outside with a vent that pulls the hot air in

ppeek2: dont wast your prayer on me save for someone that needs it more than me . i have prayer for you . i pray that you and your family and your friend have a merry chrismas and happy new year

Josh Bryant: @halfway2hell thanks a lot

Josh Bryant: @phillipgaley thanks for the comments. i appreciate the input

Jon Evans: of carsed idk how well this would work, idk how thick the heater tank is and how well it transfers heat, u mite have to put the drain just below the lowest hole to creat a sorta resivuare, and thated help with the heating of the water, and u could put a circulation pump on so if ur not usin it o heat water, u just circulate the same water and use it as an air purifier, ans to improve the eficency of the heater and purifier by adding a small trough that dissperses the water over the tank

skin5011: I like your design its a cool idea I hope it works

Dan OLOONEY: you might want to burn the paint off that barell

Josh Bryant: thanks

TheCpotter123: this is cool,,,your to smart

kentek2007: an old school cast iron rad or run it through an industrial size fluid heater such as you would find in the back of a van or bus, these are available through surplus sales. In Canada Princess Auto carries them.. also you can use in floor heating tubing or you could make your own from auto air conditioning cooling grid and blow air through it the more the better.. just trying to make some suggestions. kudos nice job there bud..

heettreet: you might need a slightly taller stack with a damper... also , your intake includes the door ,, may be a control problem ,,, also ,,the opening in front of the barrel i suppose needs more work to be closed

Josh Bryant: @stymye i could. but im not the type to go out and buy something when i can experiment and design my own. thanks for the comments.

Josh Bryant: @GMGvanS me too.lol

Josh Bryant: thanks. im redoing the whole system so its more efficient n space saving

Ricky Ricardo: what was that about? Not a thing about how its built on the inside. Very sad video. Do another version buddy when you finish it. Because I hope this is not a finished stove!! And speak up man! I mean what are you trying to say?

kentek2007: OK instead of using a fan mounted to the front of the unit you can install a duct fan it's an inclosed fan that is the shape of a small portion of pip and locate it away from the immediate heat so it will last longer and not dry our the bearings or melt the wires.. be sure to build a small mettle hut or use a cheap shed to house it. Also you could consider wrapping the heat riser with copper flex line and run it to a heat exchanger and flow prestone or oil through it heating it and run it to

Robert Monroe: @thegbpackers284 if you was able to read it says wood stove FROM hot water heater and 55 gallon drum for OUTDOOR use .. Nice video, thx for sharing ..Too bad we have to enbdure the creeps.

Josh Bryant: thats true.

Phillip Galey: @justkeepinitrealyo The 'rocket' stoves are vertical in burn, and some have a near vertical feed tube, which makes it even more efficient. Also, the old pot-belly railroad stoves which were bolted in the caboose and burned coal or wood were vertical in feed and burn. If you ever use a vertical stove, you'll quickly perceive of the speed and efficiency of them. The advantages in efficiency were of course, sacrificed to convenience in large cooking area with combined oven, warmer, oven and

David Bean: Think you might want to put your fan inside garage and pull air in from air exhaust and out to garage. might save you from problems with your fan. They make inline fans for ductwork that would work well.

Josh Bryant: @thinkyourright thanks. ill make a newer LOUDER video this weekend

Josh Bryant: @msd131 lol good call. i actually laughed at this one.

Josh Bryant: @dieselrad good idea

Josh Bryant: @ppeek2 thanks

TheCpotter123: @ppeek2 Id say hes (the video maker) has got more sense than you can even come close to,,if your just going to be a butt ppee boy then just get off you tube cause no body seriously cares if you think it is a hunk of junk,,,keep smart comments to your self

TheCpotter123: @ppeek2 and you should be ashamed acting like this on a website were people can read what you write

Phillip Galey: Especially for and inside stove, barrels are without thick enough walls to be used as an adequate heat-sink which will release heat for many hours—to get the heat to last, you have to load the barrel up, get it burning, and then, shut intake air off, starving the fire of Oxygen, to the point of gross inefficiency, putting out lots of Carb-monoxide into the ambient area surrounding your cabin—you think, throughout the day and night, any of that, CO might creep back in? Efficient fires burn hot

benjamin haynes: fire it up man...and lay off the booger suger!
