Jawwad Khan: how the autofeeding works please tell me i had make a burner but had an issue with the gravity feed i am unable to control the feedrate
Jason Broom: From what I can see, the exhaust column needs to be higher. Also, the gap sizes for the fuel source and air source should be reversed; the air source should be larger than the opening for the fuel source. Alternatively, you could add an auxiliary air source below the angle port for the fuel/pellets.
Ash: does it last and burn better than ordinary wood sticks?
peterinbrat: You need a secondary air intake or it's not really a rocket stove. The idea is that you are getting better pyrolysis with the higher heat AND a secondary combustion. That's why with the L burner, you are suppose to have a plate below the fuel feed so air is sucked into the burn chamber. Lot's of designs out there for rocket stoves that are not really understanding the concept. If you overload it, it should be flaring out through your fuel input.
Try feeding a two inch high temp hose in through your fuel feed.
K. DeMartel: I own a pellet wood stove, black smoke is not enough air flow, opening the damper a wee bit solves the problem. I also noticed on mild days that there is less air flow coming in even if the damper is untouched, cold days no black smoke build up on the window of the stove.
Murray Milburn: more air yes, longer chimney
Joseph Busch: if there is too much smoke you need more air
Glenn Connell: I would have thought the fuel needs to burn before the vertical stack so that the fire can mix with the fumes when it hits the combustion chamber before rising vertically, hence the need for a horizontal filler tube
Marc Droguet: Bravo
Joseph Nixon: I believe a longer flue would create conditions for fuller combustion, eliminating touch of the smoke. I am playing with this myself. Full combustion is important for me because I plan to be using pellets already used once in the cat's litter box!
Avery Milieu: I have lived with pellet stoves as primary heat source. To increase the burn and heat from smaller pellet loads, you need to increase the air flow to the burn chamber. I shall watch the subsequent vids to see how you handle the problem.
D eez: Try wood chips. Is cheaper fuel. Also secondary burner air holes near top would reduce smoke to almost no smoke. Thanks 4 posting vid. I like the square feed tube look over easy to source round pipe.
exclamation3mark: need this with 50 litre water heating capacity for bath added manually by buckets
exclamation3mark: great piece of kit
yutjub123: where is the secundary air intake?
Jay West: Good job on that stove. Subscribed and liked. Godspeed
Habagatstove: nice design
Terry Dosher: could I put a smoke stack and use this in a shop?
linuxxxunil: youtube.com/watch?v=vtR6nu2pqE0&feature=related this guy explains the use of stretched steel for the pellets. no smoke practically.
Fabrizio: That definitely demonstrates that is possible to light a fire with a match.
