41xIWi2TIoL AA300 jpg Vote Up 0 Vote Down Metz June 2012 Permalink I checked the prices for square tubing here and it was almost double the price of using flat plate Believe me I am trying all sorts of things to bring down the number of manufacturing steps and costs without losing quality Last night I made a new carburetor design for the stove that uses less steel and fits better I tried it out on the stainless stove pictured above The stove really took off and the heat was so intense that the carburetor glowed red hot and the tips of the pot holder even started to glow a faint red With my previous design it was hit and miss with performance I would get a batch to work perfect and then the next one not so much I may have to make the carburetor from stainless steel to keep it from burning out it is not much material only 3 75x11 inch rectangle with holes and 2 bends However stainless is a pain to cut on the CNC plasma because of the excess dross and slag I could eliminate it with using a inert bottle gas but for now the costs are not worth it Saturday comes the biggest demonstration yet 300 people are scheduled to attend Latest batch of 10 was sold out pretty fast For the pot holder I will have to stick to the gas stove pattern Anything else looks too alien and people are leery of cooking on it I may have to make the pot holder even larger to accommodate the giant woks they use here I find the use of a wok odd here because they used to use cast iron pots until not long ago It is now very hard to find cast iron Vote Up 0 Vote Down dorkmo June 2012 Permalink i drew it out a little better i think drawn as is it might flip side to side a little maybe a little piece could be bent out on either side to support that heres the sketchup file https docs google com open id

tore apart a version 3 stove that was torture tested for a couple weeks Lots of crud on the inside but very little corrosion The heat shield looks terrible however This one I can rebuild to version 5 pretty easily though I disassembled 4pieces of v3 stove and they are ready to go to the weld shop tomorrow for new pot holder and new heat shields Loold like galvanized is out for the stove My guy used it to fry chicken for 3 hours and it discolored I tried BBQ grill paint but it is cheaper to use unpainted stainless as well that stainless has a higher perceived value I am changing the insulation to perlite and eventually a perlite pumice mix Fiberglass is too itchy and perlite is 3 less per stove The stoves are selling Have 8 orders in the pipeline Making 20 pieces this week setting up the demo stove at the public market on Saturday and selling them Got one order today when I stopped to get a freight quote and the trucking company owner bought one for his employees use Vote Up 0 Vote Down Metz June 2012 Permalink Night time burn with the stove The flame is higher than usual this increases heat output Downside is that when the flame protrudes from the stove there is increased soot on the pan Here is the clean out after a hour of cooking Next order of business is to weigh the wood burned weigh the ash and charcoal remaining and publish the results Vote Up 0 Vote Down Beluga June 2012 Permalink Are you familiar with this open hardware stove project http www goodstove com He has done like 50 designs I think Vote Up 0 Vote Down Metz June 2012 Permalink I checked out his site Interesting but most is info I already read in other places Here is a video of my inner flue design the background is a cut sheet but not bent It is 3 bends on the big machine then a hand bend and weld I am down to 6 bends per stove As I pay per bend I need to keep the numbers down I also pay by the number of welds so this stove has half the welding of previous models Outer heat shield will be square It is easier to bend than roll for fabrication I reduced the number of prongs on the pot holder to 4 instead of 6 I made the prongs larger though and angled to support anything from a small fry pan to a giant wok Yesterday I did 2 demos I accidentally dropped my stove clean out tool inside the stove The tool got bright orange and got so soft it started to warp I am finding a layer of slag on the sides of the stove after a long hot burn I wonder how this will affect the stoves lifespan I am guessing a minimum of a year right
