DB: Do not get caught up in the cool look, If you want art you can get some crooked metal made for a lot less than this stove. They do not work effectively.
Doug Smith: How big of an area will one of these heat?
msmeg: Cool! Modified rocket stove =~)
getbo: Why is this better than a conventional wood burning stove?
Mark Scott: Will this work with corn too?
MontanicOrganic: Hey Gary- hire a model with giant mammals & give her a 4 hour class on your jargon, have her do the videos & you'll be good to go.
Phil McAdam: would love to see more about venting options,thanks.
ZeroFossilFuel: Very neat, compact design. But with your temp gauge location, that means you've got very high temps going out the flue pipe. By contrast I have had the top of my Rocket Stove as high as 930*F with flue temps no higher than 220*F. Less heat out the flue = more heat in the room. I'll keep my non-UL certified Rocket.
dragsleik: how much does it cost?
Mike Smith: Had to comment on your stove and how you are pushing (selling) it. If you had even a small fan as an option for the people who wanted it the heat would be distributed much better as right now so much of it is just going out the chimney as wasted heat, radiant heat is great for one area and thats about it. With a fan and small heat tubes the stove would heat a larger home much easier but then again you wouldn't be able to sell the customer two or more stoves so it would cut down on the profit margin. I think many things were sacrificed for the non electric pellet stove claim, why not just add the fans and heat chambers and or leave it up the customer to decide? Many would still want the stove just because it will still function during a power failure which most will not without a generator presently. A great selling point but electric is still needed for the fan at least with at least 3 fan speed settings I'd figure. Its just a matter of looking at what you have built, I commend you on a neat design otherwise that seems to work decently. The cost is also quiet high when comparing with other pellet stoves, why? It cannot cost that much to make and the design aspect is only good for a short time. You'd sell more stoves if they were lower priced which gets more of your stoves out there and more satisfied customers (hopefully) to push them which is always the best advertising. Word of mouth can either make a product take off like a wildfire or sink it like the titanic if it doesn't live up to expectations. Remember criticism can be a good thing!! Ah one other big point to make here is you mentioned to take the stove outside and wash out the inside of the pipes using a garden hose, to me that would just hasten the prospect of rusting from the inside out! It can't be made with very thick metal as the weight shows that right off the bat. Just a thought anyhow. What about people who make their own pellets out of different substances, grass, corn, cherry pits, paper pellets etc? will it still burn them if they are "pellets". More testing it seems might answer that one. Good luck.
Norman Kellison: This is a great idea! Although I'm not a fan of pellet stoves, I'd buy this. I like the clean burn of the high-temperature Rocket Stove design.
Jason Glaneuski: This thing looks like a royal PIA but I applaud your ingenuity!
John Ross:http://youtu.be/Kjyf4dBViic I saw this at the Outdoor Farm Show at Woodstock ON. EPA Clean burning. Uses wood pellets and no external power other than a propane torch to ignite the pellets. Can heat water too. Doesn't work with corn though.
Tango Inasia: Looks cool the only thing I don't see how you can cook on in. Did you think about adding some part to be able to cook?
ziongite: Very good design but no offense but drinking distilled water isn't really good for you. So the distilling column thing isn't that useful unless people are going to attempt to make their own alcohol with this. lol. Distilled water essentially is just pure H20 and lacks all the minerals and other things water naturally has in it. Also drinking distilled water can weaken your immune system. Doctors and many other scientists have warned hippie idiots not to drink distilled water. Just because it has the word pure in it doesn't make it positive.
Al Kuerbis: nice good for a RV home, what is the cost of plans
