Rocket Stove - Cut heating costs this winter, very efficient DIY stove made from spent gas bottles
This is in no way new but I thought I would mention it as I know how hard times are what with massive unemployment and the escalation costs of oil.

You cant buy these from shops for some strange reason hence you make them.

Costs very little to make, saves a lot of money in heating your home.

Not my videos but you get the idea from them



Heres a simple image of the unit

Burns very clean (very little smoke)
Burns about two-thirds of the wood a conventinal stove will for the same heat output. More heat in your home rather than out the chimmey.

The concept is as follows, wood is gravity fed into a 'J shaped' combustion chamber, and the hot gases draft upwards through a heavily-insulated, vertical secondary combustion chamber. The design requires no fans or electricity, yet ensures an efficient high-temperature burn. Flue gases are cooled to a relatively low temperature within the flue (50°C or less), conserving most of the fire’s heat within the building rather than out.

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

I will be doing the same thing this winter as I did last winter:

No heat. Put on warm clothes, and use blankets.

I haven't paid for heat in years. Don't even have the gas turned on to my place. Have never paid them a penny.

Looks good OP, but I think my town would arrest me for having it :(

How cold are your winters? was -10 for a month here last winter so I have been looking at ways to reduce my heating costs this year, cant afford another winter like that.
I have doubled up the attic insulation this year and also changed all my energy bulbs to LED bulbs, get to many hours of dark here in the UK in the winter months.

Cause they'd never pass UL code, then some dumbass would burn the house down and maker would be out of business.

Why?
I would say its safer than an open fire spitting out burning ambers on carpets and open fires are used by millions around the world.

Jamie this needs a bump... thx

If I have a bill for $4.27 and give the cashier $5.02, the stunned look on their faces as they give me back $.75 (three quarters) is akin to a magic trick. How did you do that?

No, these are not rocket stoves, you shouldn't confuse them.
Below is a link to a image showing rocket stove.

[link to sitesatu.com]

The way a rocket stove works is the flame burns horizontally, heat is trapped in a outer drum with the exhaust at the bottom only allowing cooler air to exit, The flu is twice the width as the burner mouth to produce the draft necessary to make this system work


Please read the PDF to understand the principle.

This is what makes them so efficient compared to standard stoves
