Red Clay: What kind of saw was that? That was a clever idea how it was made! Great job!
TheEmeraldfox: Yea he'll win the Darwin award for using the wrong size barrel! That kit cost 59.99 at tractor supply another 15 or 20 dollars for a 50 gal metal barrel..i jus built one of these for my hunting cabin yesterday it came out beautiful and works really well due to the right size barrel!!
Christopher “The Cheap Gamer” Eckbold: i mean for the flange you could have just put it on the back
peggyt1243: Can't believe you put a wood stove in a small space make out of wood. Stoves need clearance and non-combustible materials.
Veronica Myers: LOVE this !
just showed it to my son :)
John King: Had he cut the barrel on the other side he would not have had to cut around those holes and he would have had a nice clean cut.
Daniel Wilson: Love it! Good video
Grayson Goss: what size plenums and fan do you use?
Spud Rubble: We have a 30 gallon barrel slid inside of a 55 gallon barrel with 4 bags of mason sand stuffed between the 2 barrels, we optioned for 2 burner tops for the stove on our kit. The barrel in barrel design with the sand is a fantastic thermal mass system (I have pics of the build) . We found an article with no picture on building a better barrel stove and decided to build it and document the steps. We use far less wood than we ever did with a store bought stove. We used to burn 10-13 ranks of wood a year for our home, now we use 7-9 rank and keeps the place around 80 degrees (24x44) in Missouri.
Thomas Lalor: Should have rotated the door assembly until the holes n the drum were uncovered entirely when marking the cut line for the face of the drum.
Slicks Place: Good job, took my damper out and installed one about 2 feet up on the flue pipe.
Android Orangutan: i love it when u macgyvers get together an get things done..great work everyone! instead of hands on this is (eyes on ) do it urself! great work fellas
Rick A: Troy, if you find that he barrel stove gets too hot, it may be better to put this barrel inside a larger one and fill the gap with sand. The sand would act as a heat mass and help to moderate how fast things heat up.
Link Knight: best thing with all this is that if the drum DOES die, you can use the bits again on another drum. that's REALLY beneficial.
The Do It Yourself World: :)
The Do It Yourself World: Thanks yes I need more wood but I will have the stove running efficiently I think.
The Do It Yourself World: I know, used it in my little pot belly stove. Thanks.
The Do It Yourself World: No live streaming. I use my cell phone for internet. Would be flat dead in an hour of streaming.
