xerr0n: ooh no gloves...especially in handling cement.
nickromes: that stove is a good project to make
Nico Lugosi: I guess they started teaching that between the times that we both went to
school. I learned it, anyway. If nothing else, there are apps, and websites
that will convert metric into ounces and Lbs all over the place.
1stBumbleBeeMaster: This is the technique I used: Soak the Straw in a bucket for 2 days, use
one pint jug of Portland Cement (Dry) and 2 pint jugs of Clay Powder, and
mix them up thoroughly.(Do not breathe in powder while mixing) Then drain
off the water from your Straw then shred it into small pieces. Then just
add your dry Cement,Clay mix add your water very slowly while mixing, when
it becomes like dough keep needing it for 20 minutes and your done! Hope
Julie Jonte: It would be so much more useful if you gave dimensions and weights in
inches and pounds/ounces, and temperature in degrees degrees F. in addition
to the metric measurements.
ACampfireProduction: very intresting video far more hi tec than our attempt in the woods with a
hole in the ground oven which was actually quite sucessfull
nickromes: do that insulated brick will be good to make foundry
qwertyscot: Thnx for the inspiration... I,ve since built a rocket stove heater.. check
out my 2 videos at "qwertyscot"
Harry Hobart: I have a question. How am I suppose to fire the bricks? I'm not thinking I
can do that in my conventional oven.
Joonaskokkonen75: It does indeed... Made years ago such from a chimney cylinder and a empty
can. It was very good.
SuperDaveisme: nice video. thanks for taking the time to explain things and not just show
the end result.
suilekelly: you would need a kilm.
crankeyyankee1947: What's a gram.I am an American.OZ,lbs
czg101: is there a way to eliminate the soot on the pot?
1stBumbleBeeMaster: I have successfully used an old grill shelf and placed the bricks right
over the top of the fire in the flame and they glow red. This was using
straw clay and small amount of portland cement. I made a pitza oven, that
was 5 years ago and I still have not had to replace the home made fire
bricks. They do become brittle though so you have to handle with care but
once they are cemented in they will last years.
compwiz101: Google is really helpful. Just type in "convert 1 gram to ounce" and it'll
calculate that for you.
vidaripollen: it s a nice video.
Donald Brant: Good presentation , I have a question , Has anyone that you know of tried
to use a piece of vitrinised clay Pipe as we use in the plumbing industry ,
Some of the older pipe is fired at very high temps., that is the reason I
ask . I was just wondering about using it for the inner Pipe or fire
chamber , What do any of you think ? Thanks for your help . I have not
started my project stove yet but I am itching to get started.
strawboss17: Can you give me the proportions of straw/clay/portland cement? I'd really
like to try this but have no access to a kiln so your success is
Rustaholic777: What I noticed and you never mention is that you knocked or cut the edges
off those bricks so the sheet metal would fit.
kamilo lucio: gostei muito pratico vou fazer um brevemente,prabens pela ideia.
mu99ins: Always wear gloves when working cement. All you have to do is meet someone
who has cracked skin from cement poisoning to be convinced. The best way is
to use surgical latex gloves worn inside ordinary work gloves to safe guard
your skin. The price of very cheap latex gloves is far less than the misery
of a lifetime of severely cracked skin on your hands.
