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
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.
Veronica Myers: LOVE this !
just showed it to my son :)
Nick L: Good job, took my damper out and installed one about 2 feet up on the flue
spudrubble: 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)
Grayson Goss: what size plenums and fan do you use?
Adama Tova: Sorry - I forgot what that nice guy's name is - your neighbor who helps you
- the guy with the beard. What does he think about this whole thing with
The Do It Yourself World: Pliers probably
HappyandAtheist: for long team us for eye protection when I was working construction we
preferred a visor on our hard hat , it is much more comfortable and does
not steam up at easy. Some used a goggles but made of fine mesh wire screen
which is better as it lets air thought so no fogging.
NewbiePrepperTv: That's really awesome right there! First time I've seen such a kit! What a
great idea! Cannot wait to find out how well it radiates heat for you in
the Off-Grid Home. Thanks Troy, Luther T.
eenlaatstekans: Hey Troy - and oen more perfect job done!! WOOT WOOT WOOT!! You know what I
find so interesting and stimulating about your videos: it has such an
educational value. You think of so many things that I simple would not come
up with on first thoughts. But you just have some sort of insight and
overview that makes you solve problems already before they have even begun.
COngratulations on a perfect job, bro!
2012solarful: I been waiting for this video ever since you got the stove kit. Thanks alot
for the great videos:)
ro prepper: Try seamonkey portabile with flash 11.2 and adblock plus ;) teh bomb
Camper Hollow: Parts of it were used in prior videos but this is a video made from parts
of other videos. Great job don't you think?
The Do It Yourself World: Packaging is what I used in my fridge wall.
Link Knight: probably not. there are different densities of polystyrene though. some
breaks up easier than others. if you've ever dealt with floats ( to helpyou
pull up sailboats anchors ) they are quite a high density and pretty hard
NewbiePrepperTv: Good point, as water is certainly a commodity at your Off-Grid Resort!
Conserve, conserve, conserve!:) Thanks! Luther T.
NewbiePrepperTv: Troy, good-morning!:) Just ran across a video where a guy is using his
Wood-Stove to create HOT WATER, as well as for general heating purposes. I
know you've got the Triton, but thought you may consider doing the same?
Looks like he's just using a copper coil set-up. Can send link if you'd
like. Thanks! Luther T.
The Do It Yourself World: There is a window right inside the shed I can open and use a fan to blow
hot air into the RV.
Camshaft Shaft: That thing is great Troy maby if u have room you could stack bricks on the
sides and the back of the barrel so your walls won't get to hot! Great job
and great person that sent u that:)
Teresa Schmitt: nice job on the wood stove still wondering about effectiveness of the whole
project. also was wondering how long do you plan on doing this off grid
project is this temporary or is this for here on out?
The Do It Yourself World: Thank you very much. Actually it takes me some time to formulate a plan for
a project. Thats why some things sit off to the side for a while as I
figure it out.
The Do It Yourself World: Already looking. And thinking about upgrades.
The Do It Yourself World: Thanks yes I need more wood but I will have the stove running efficiently I
The Do It Yourself World: Costs a lot though and I already have the shed done. I need to set up heat
shielding now is all.
markshy11: Another idea for you to consider...After watching you suffer with NO solar
charging for a couple days I figured you needed a Second power source to
charge your batteries. What about a Bicycle Generator for Charging Battery
Banks? Granted it's not much but a few hundred watts more than you were
getting. Kits are not too expensive....
Crystal Dawn: Here is the link to the cabin if you'd like to check it out. :) Less than
100 bucks, warm and toasty with the large stove and very comfortable with
the rest of the homemade items. /watch?v=5xAcjoCEU6A God Bless you & Keep
up the great projects/work!
The Do It Yourself World: I sure hope it does not get that hot.
The Do It Yourself World: I know, I was not really monitoring the fire. It was a first burn to clean
the stove and cure the cement.
The Do It Yourself World: Yup, thats the problem.
hitechguy18: Another upgrade Barrel Stove Rocket Stove combo And Extra barrel on the
Stack to have double combustion on wood gas However You'll never get nr the
thing then LOL
LuvMyTJ: For better air control I would suggest picking up some fiberglass stove
rope gasket kit (Tractor Supply has lots of stove accessories). For $10
it's cheap and will make a huge difference.
The Do It Yourself World: That is why you sometimes see me with a welders mask on. Its easier and
Leslie Durst North Florida Koi: Les here. [North Florida Koi] my channels are mixed somehow. Anyway. Wanted
to be real here. Continued success! I'm learning as I watch. Thanks
im4tigers: Troy do you know if you can use the barrel stove in a house and vent it out
justinjoyit13: Could you not use the left over metal sheeting to skin the inside too? I
know you don't like fiberglass insulation due to mice but it is also fire
purplemonkeycrazy: just thought that maybe you should run the beast gene from the honda since
your not really going to drive it. you might try some kind of pulley from
the wheels to the gene. then you can recharge your batteries on cloudy days
Prepping2endure: to make hot water for heat could you get flexible copper tubing and wrap
the outside of the barrel or stove pipe then pump water thru then to a fin
tube base board radiator to heat the camper as well???
dhubdhubzoom: you know in case leaves pile up ontop of the rv or nearby.
TigerNinja25: That stove looks do cool. You can insulate your barrel with clay or cob on
the outside of it. It insulate and would work as thermal mass and store
heat to use later when it not burning, but may not be the best material
with your small shed.
Ollem Fallah: isn't this an old video?
Susanne Collins: I really admire what you have accomplished.
The Do It Yourself World: Yes if it is build well and safe and your burn it out first outside to get
the poisonous fumes off, I think so.
Link Knight: its fins. he may put on PinFin, something i used to see professionally done
at work ( outside pipe heat dissipation, used in oil refineries and
Mike DeLucia: dude great job, I haven't been around in a while so I have to catch up on
all your vids..hope you made a knife out of the metal u first cut..also,
next time try a grinder,,sparks like hell but does a great job..keep up the
hitechguy18: I would still keep your eyes out for a 40" Barrel but use it as a Double
wall jacket Be temped to get some Copper Brake Pipes + 2 Manifolds and bend
them to loop the barrel twice / three times (And have a number of these
loops) to recover the heat so you can use the RV Heater + one of your old
Matrix Rads for keeping the Water temps cool before it returns
The Do It Yourself World: :)
The Do It Yourself World: Yes I will use sand under the grate. And the hardware store and TSC both
have fireplace stuff.
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.
