Building 6' Stove Pipe Rocket Stove Heater 55 Gallon Drum Version Part 1 Of 2




What do you think about this video?

David Jastram: Thanks for sharing!

Richard Richter: nice big bomber stove 

rosie zazzara: How to build stove heater

Danny Fields: To much info very boring.

Feel Good: You should return the garden wagon to Lowes.

W1VLF: Hello thanks for this video and the others in the series. I have watched it several times. Since you have had it for a year or so can you tell how well the pipes held up. Did they burn out? I am building one of these following your instruction

Miguel Hernnandez: WEPA, this is some cool stuff to build if you need a heating system.

Halem Rab: Thanks, it's really nice to watch that work ,, good 

Andrew Gems: How to you bend the flange to conform to the curvature of the barrel? Nice dog by the way, is he or she your supervisor? Very well explained otherwise, and no I was not bored LOL!!

pawel071174: you remind me of mr Anderson from beavis and butthead demit beavis ill kick your ass you need some extra air intake for it to fire like real rocket good luck dude dont hurt your self

WingNuts2010: Love watching these DIY videos. But most of them remind me of the Kenny Everett DIY sketch man Reg. 

ganis panca: Building 6 stove pipe rocket stove heater

Keeb21: Ding Dang Dooooooo...........

Feel Good: Flip your funnel over the hole and pour your insualtion on it to get it in faster and easier.

ann nonomous: i just watched a bio-gas video, and i wondered what boosting a rocket stove with the methane would do? :D

imbadwrench: vogelzang makes a 2 drum upgrade kit for $30 or less that has 2 of those adapters in it

MrCOLTSR2: This is what i love about you tube...ordinary folk uploading videos to help and inspire other ordinary folk like myself...cheers dude!

redicety12: The one problem with propane tanks is there about 2 to 3 times as thick as barrels so supposedly they do not work as well, I do not know though because I have never tried one yet. And yes the high temps also help in combustion and gassification. I insulated my feed tube/burn chamber just so I would get a more complete burn and it made a difference.

redicety12: Well I have 9 spares.

Antoine Kerfzhan: why insulate the inner tube if heat dissipation is the goal from the exterior of the larger barrel? I can see if you cooking with it to focus the heat to the pot, but if your only heating weigh it (to me anyway) it makes sense to not insulate the inner tube so you have more dissipating through out the stove...more or less it isn't need. Let me know your thoughts. I built a small stove and should have insulated it so the heat doesn't dissipate but seemingly as a heating device I want dissipation?

redicety12: but about 70+% more efficient.

redicety12: It is a digital camera no exposed mic, even if it did have an exposed mic it was so windy that day to lose the wind noise would be to lose me talking.

Stephanie Soressi: Dude, I really enjoy watching you work. Thanks for speeding up during certain spots, that helps a lot.

redicety12: It is really not that hard to get my info, I run a business out of my house etc. Showing my license plate on youtube videos is the least of my worries. I actualy though about attempting to edit them out but after thinking about it decided it was pretty pointless. I am far from anonymous on the web.

Donald Brant: I have seen a video that utilizes a propane bottle and it works great and you don't need to worry about a barrel burning through after a few years . As for insulating the updraft pipe I would recommend it because the whole idea of the Rocket mass stove is MASS , Mass equals heat retention and better burn efficiency. Happy New Year

qwertyscot: Thnx for the inspiration... I,ve since built a rocket stove heater.. check out my 2 videos at "qwertyscot"

Loren Klein: WOW! That is AWFUL.....BUT, they are ALL that way....Pay attention when you by something...they take it back if defective, not when you just change your mind or take it home to use and hadn't planned on keeping it anyway. MENARDS is ALWAYS good!

redicety12: Good to know heh, did not have a proper mask at the time I have since bought one. Also that insulating wrap crap sucks to breath to as I think I mentioned in the vid.

redicety12: You could do it without the stove kits a few different ways. I just used them because they were convenient and I already had the one.

redicety12: Thanks will do.

Dem0D1ck: Great project, but a suggestion, if you do this kind of stuff all the time you better start wearing ear protection man.

Antoine Kerfzhan: I read in a different post that it contributes to gasification of the wood so it burns the wood more efficiently by keeping the temps in the combustion chamber very hot...makes sense... I guess comparative to a catalytic converter in our cars making a cleaner exhaust. Thanks for your reply I want to build one for my shop and I only want to do it once...know what I mean! I think I will use propane tanks as they seem pretty well built and will look pretty good...thanks again!

Bill Last: Great video but of no use to Ausies as one of those barrel stove kit cost $150 here in AU...If I were to import the kit from the States, it would cost me about $300! Bummer! Still, a good stove you have there.

redicety12: Glad you liked it, there a ton of fun to build and of course when you get it working and actually heating an area all the work is rewarded as well.

WelcomeToMyDream: Great video, damn funny too. Subbed and now to part 2, the 55 gal drum in my back yard is destined for greatness..

Jeff Holmes: If you cut a door on the side and frame a lip around the door to allow the door to close tight, you will have created an oven inside the barrel. Not to mention that it could be used to dry wet wood as you burn from the Jay Tube. Any ways, Nice Job Dude :)

redicety12: Ya when its loud stuff I try to wear ear protection usually, but once in a while I don't have it on me or its only a small job that wont take long and I don't have it.

zac carroll: freak you nearly lost s finger when you started that grinder!!!

redicety12: Because they have better prices than the other home improvement stores. No idea about the gas or oil stuff the few I have bought from them I have had no problems with. I buy from all the local home improvement stores but I normally go to menards because everything they sell is cheaper especially on building materials.

Bruce Benedict: great vid mate. given me plenty to think about for my own rocket stove. cheers

redicety12: One thing you could do is like how I made my insulated pipe by just cutting 1inch notches on the end of the 8 inch pipe then bending them in all around what you could do is instead of bending them all in you could bend some out and then just use metal screws through those into the barrel. Probably what I am going to do on my next stove since I won't be taking this one apart anytime soon since it works so good.

solo tex: not a good idea to show your license plates on vids my friend.thank for sharing have a good one.

bob bob: learn how to fast forward man

redicety12: The more of a difference from hot to cold the more of a rocket affect, the more draw the more efficient the stove, the more efficient the stove the less wood you need to heat the same space. This also plays into how high your heat riser is, the farther the hot cooling air has to fall the more speed it will attain and again create even more draft and an even more efficient rocket stove, to a point. At one point it will draw so fast it will just suck out your fire there is such a thing as to much.

limbodog: Very helpful. Being able to see you actually do all the steps is much better than most of the videos where you just see it done already.

William Gahres: Great stuff.

redicety12: Fire, most people just start a decent fire put the barrel on it, you could try sanding it or sand blasting etc.

piglett2195: so there is a big difference between the J &L bend? how much difference? thanks

Rupert Leanna: Excellent video. Great to see how you make the stove. What did you use to remove the paint from the outside of the oil drum?

Casey Halone: also, make sure no one can see your plates when you are in public. just to be safe.
