Did this video help you?

mozaikadezign: 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

jan clodd Lafront: bOOm!

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-antoine 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!

TrueBlogge777: This works very well the burn is at the base of the chamber, not wasting fuel, and burning wood pellets efficiently, in a controlled way, the air looks about right if you added more it would burn to hot and you could not cook on it very easy, wood pellets do smoke a little anyway.

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

Gabriel M Apostol: This means the air is not heated up before is injected into the chimney?

Jay West: Good job on that stove. Subscribed and liked. Godspeed

lebammabel: Yes I used something similar to vermiculite which translates as slag or dross. I mixed it with heat resistant or stove clay. I must say that it is not best choice for portable stove but at that time I did not find anything better. It appeared to be too heavy and stays hot long time after burning. Good choice for heater. Next time will try something like stone wool.

Gabriel M Apostol: Very nice!

lebammabel: Size of flue or chimney I chose intentionally. As I understood from research it has to be even bigger in anent to fuel feeding tube. Now I will try to increase air flow and see will it change anything.

linuxxxunil: youtube.com/watch?v=vtR6nu2pqE0&feature=related this guy explains the use of stretched steel for the pellets. no smoke practically.

lebammabel: Just choose right match.

Gabriel M Apostol: I remember now you wrote to me about the 45 degrees burning chamber. I believe I was one of the first to make the rs this way. I used to have a youtube channel called bs4872. Your stoves are great. I have a question, do you have any insulation in there? Thanks.

lebammabel: If you mean side holes which appeared in stove update - I inserted tubes which connects outer stove body with chimney. And some air goes through additional air intake beneath fuel feed tube (square one).

elhigh: For homebrew, this is a really clean, well-thought-out looking build. Looks great. I burn pellets sometimes, in a homemade basket in my woodstove. It gets the job done. I second the others who said you need a taller/narrower flue to provide a stronger draw.

Gabriel M Apostol: So the air is passing through the insulation in order to reach the holes you made into the chimney? Is this true?

Fabrizio Milia: That definitely demonstrates that is possible to light a fire with a match.

exclamation3mark: great piece of kit

lebammabel: In this video stove doesn't have the secondary air intake. However extra air could flow into burning chamber through ashtray opening, but then ash removal will be quite uncomfortable. The secondary air intake I made later. You can see it in video - DIY rocket stove - gravity feed (update).

Terry Dosher: could I put a smoke stack and use this in a shop?

lebammabel: Updates 2 and 3 of this video I think are a bit nicer. Here I have some combustion problems which seems to be solved now.

yutjub123: where is the secundary air intake?

Habagatstove: nice design

lebammabel: Thanks. i have already made some changes. Will upload soon.

lebammabel: Air enters space between both chimneys at the level of burning chamber and while travels up to holes gets some preheat.

lebammabel: I think it is possible. Some heat will be lost in stack but it still should bee usable for cooking.

metzindustries: your flue needs to be longer and maybe a bit smaller to get a better draw, otherwise a nice design. looks stable to put on a pot
