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
Jason Glaneuski: This thing looks like a royal PIA but I applaud your ingenuity!
Phil McAdam: would love to see more about venting options,thanks.
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
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.
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.
dragsleik: how much does it cost?
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?
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.
Alvarez Metal Works: I have a 1300sq/ft shop what is poorly insulated. Will this be a good stove
to heat that large of a space? I live in Syracuse, NY were winter temps
regularly get into the single digits and sometime below zero. The stove
would be right smack in the center of the shop. My ideal working temp would
be about 60 degrees at the farthest point inside my shop from the stove.
Right now I have a double barrel stove in there and it works pretty good
but it's not efficient. During a really cold day I have to get a pretty
serious fire going to heat up the shop to the temps I like.
Al Kuerbis: nice
good for a RV home, what is the cost of plans
TheMountainfarmer: I have seen this stove in operation at our local ACE store. The sq footage
is close to 5,000 feet and they heat it with two stoves, 1 in the front of
the store and one at the back and the place is toasty! I like your product!
Great idea and invention.
Drew Donley: I dig your stove invention man.
JaansJautrais: What is the song at the beginning?
Tom Skaggs: I like the idea of the no electric stove. I've had pellet stoves for
several years now, and electric failure is the only drawback. I wish you
continued success with your company.
john decoteau: nice work man! rugged, solid, simple.
Antonia Flores: please help me do the math , one day equal to how much money in pellets
equal to 30 days (one month) for a total of $ ..........a month ?
Ed Ginsberg: what kind of temperature is the stack above the stove. can you exit the flu
out the side wall where the stove may be located what is the btu's on low
for the use in the house.
ETHIOLOGIST1: With such high radiant heat output from the one side, developing a "capture
box" or plenum that can be connected to existing duct work would greatly
improve the efficiency in use for a large space.
outsidethe86: I'm buying a house soon and was thinking about putting a pellet stove in my
basement hooked up to duct work, they should design a capture box for this
stove I would buy it right away.
glendor2: There is a LOT of heat wasted out of the flue (chimney). For a place in
central California, it might not be bad. However, if you live in Minnesota,
you'd need one for every room. A modern gas furnace has flue temperatures
in the 90's. The key to efficiency is a low flue temperature (the ratio of
usable heat to the wasted heat).
David Januszewski: Will it function using corn as the fuel, pellets are not available in my
lookinforthelightful: Let me do the math.....12 hours on high and 36 hours on low. Assuming we
take 18 hours as the norm and it's $6.50 per bag. That's $260 per month. A
stove heating a 2200 square foot home would need 2 for sure. That's $520
per month.....hmmm....sorry, no sale!!!
