wildcat19671: if you put a layer of sand on top it wont char and smoke on top like that
Pantharen: If you can get a can with a metal lid, and put a vent hole in the metal
lid, then you can use a grill over the hole, instead of wood, and it
creates a hotter flame.
FULLR3TARD: Excuse me dude, do you think you could make tiny ones out of soda/beer cans
that you could take camping? If so you could take a dozen pretty
conveniently and not have to worry about firewood. Be light too. What do
sixtyfiveford: I did try the sand but it seams to put the fire out towards the end. I had
another Utube person suggest to use your old ashes. Both work great but I
think the ashes work slightly better. Thanks for the comment.
tritowns: that my friend, is bloody brilliant!
Van Powell: I would expect to get a longer burn time from a stright hole through the
bucket with leggs to allow for draft, this in addition to the sheet metal
piece will insure the burn will burn in only one direction . that would be
from the center out. The smoke you get is from air being drawn in between
wood ships causeing smoldering instead of clean burn.
sixtyfiveford: Great tip. I've noticed if I only do small amounts at a time it displaces
less and compacts better.
sixtyfiveford: Interesting. I have not tried it on a smaller tin than the one shown. How
many cm tall-wide was it?
sixtyfiveford: Definitely a plan.
kbbacon: Nice stove!
sixtyfiveford: Just watched it. For some reason I feel like a bowl of chilli now.. The
wood gas stuff is pretty neat.
sixtyfiveford: Yeah, this will work with virtually any combustible (leaves, paper, twigs,
corn husks, etc.).
tryin2lhard: If you put a thin layer of sand on top, or dirt, it will keep the top from
catching and turning to smoke.
sixtyfiveford: I does, But it is all focused upwards for the first 2hrs. The remaining 2
hrs the heat is spread out more.
sorin salagean: on top of sawdust put a layer of sand
sixtyfiveford: Thanks you.
sixtyfiveford: Yes.... You can use virtually anything that will burn.
Thomas Bradford: it might be a good idea to put a lid on top with the hole drilled the same
diameter.. this could prevent dangerous flare-ups and possible injuries...R
sixtyfiveford: Thanks Man.... I need to make one of those mudding mowers. I just subbed.
se7en1976: Mate, build a "sit on" chimney with a copper coil in it (water heating) and
perhaps add gassifier holes in it, and you will be my personal hero. What
you've done here is bloody brilliant.
sixtyfiveford: Thanks for watching!
sixtyfiveford: The tighter you pack it the better it burns. Thanks for watching.
sixtyfiveford: I just finished the video with a lid. It should be up in an hour.
Richard Downer: that's a SUPER great IDEA it looks like it works AWESOME... thanks for the
idea. my brother hooks me up with 75 lbs bags of hard wood saw dust all the
time. ( he does hardwood floors for a living) I use it as salt for my
driveway and steps. plus I use it to pick up spills in my garage. but now I
can use it to cook haha thanks
Vicky Barton: Eager to know how it went using a lid. Awesome idea though!
ct dillon: I have been around allot of saw mills, seen allot of saw dust, but I have
never seen it burn as simple as you have done, I have had to added other
means of getting it to burn, This may be a way to have a nice barbque.
DanishButterCookies2: you should put some earth or some non burning material on top of sawdust to
limit it to burn from the top. ..limit the top part from burning too much.
in that way you could lenghten the time of fire burning.
sixtyfiveford: I hope you do try it..
wtbm123: Cool. i have made rocket stoves before ,but not like this one. I am going
to try one. Good idea
sixtyfiveford: I have another video with a lid and it didn't work out well.
Jason B: Amen to that! :-)
Jimmy J: have you tried other containers such as a coffee can for lower
cooking/burning time? just curious how long that would last if 4 hours isnt
22justus2: spread a little sand on top of the sawdust and it won't catch up and flame
out on top too soon. it really helps!1
EarthRover: Wow! Simple, cheap and effective. Would it be possible to put a hole in the
metal lid and use it to slow down the burn rate?
Richard Downer: Great thank you very much. as i did the same on yours :-)
Richard Vollnogle: Have you considered leaving a pipe in the lower chamber and then using this
in a mass heater configuration? The beauty of the idea would be its free
and you could use it to heat something- house, garage, greenhouse.
sixtyfiveford: Thanks for watching.
sixtyfiveford: Thanks.. I'm glad you like it.
Dasdfjkl: Interesting. Also, I figured out who you are. You must be Kiefer
Sutherland's younger brother. I just saw Kiefer Sutherland on a tv show
tonight and at first I thought it was you, sixtyfiveford.
Gamersnews.com: Nice build thanks for the tip
TheMaxthesis: Thats´s Fine! =D Great video!
Melvin Lamp: Great video, and idea. thanks
Van Powell: Leggs on the bottom with a straight verticle hole is the same thing with
only a 90 degree bend in the intake. Im not sure if your asking how big the
opening should be on the stove or the sheet metal... so I find around 2
inches is best and maybe 3 for a 50 gallon drum. smaller opening dont draft
as well and can clog. larg ones take up fuel space.. the sheet metal hole
should be 1/8 inch bigger than the tube you pack around, the fire should
burn from inside out only to max burn time,
sixtyfiveford: Yes, I have used sand and dirt. I really like to use old ashes as they
don't seam to smother the fire at the end of the burn cycle.
sixtyfiveford: Thanks. How big did you make your center hole?
umajunkcollector: Looks liek it would be good for a wood burner or fireplace, does it put out
a lot of heat?
Trevody: This will work even if the sawdust is damp, got me wondering if this will
work with shredded paper
Richard Downer: OK your a genius that's a suuuuuper great idea.....i just HAD to subscribe.
hope you do the same in return thanks for that video. I'm going now to
check out your other videos right now..
