Barrel Wood Stove Problem Solving - Double Wall Chimney Pipe




What do you think about this video?

Jim Mcdonald: Great videos. Thanks for sharing 

Willows Garden: Brilliant idea on the shade Bobby, kudos my friend. Hope you and Susan have a wonderful Thanksgiving, hugs, love and prayers to y'all!

whiteflight8: Great videos Love your positive attitude Thanks for sharing

DJ Marion: I think I hate Comcast as much as you hate Verizon.

Ron Nelson: Bad idea running a forced air into your barrel stove. You are increasing the temp of the fire greater than what the steel barrel will withstand. You're going to burn the barrel out faster. Its too thin a metal for that. That's why your wood support grate was warping and breaking.

KINGCOIL1973: Thanks for the good info brother!God bless 

Neil Jeffs: crumbs You are being ripped of for broadband its only £25 a month in UK

Ron Nelson: it is a really nice stove. I like it, just thought you might want to rethink the forced air thing. Think of a blacksmith firepit. He pumps air into the fire and the metal gets hot enough to melt.

Nortekj: Another thing to consider IF you do find that you get better heat with some sort of a grate is to run the 2 inch air supply through to inside of the barrel about 2 inches and then connect a T and then add 2 short nipples (6 to 8 inches long) to an Elbow on each side then add 2 more sections of 2 inch schedule 40 iron pipe to reach to the back of stove that has 3/8th inch holes drilled about every 2 inches apart. after assembling the air supply put sand in the burning chamber just deep enough so that the entire air supply piping assembly can rest on it. This configuration should allow a more complete burn with a lot less creosote buildup.

brian messinger: use hydrogen peroxide to water your plants---give them ox in the roots and sterilizes any diseases 

Nortekj: Bobby, Have you considered 2100 degree pipe for the outside portion of the chimney? It has a 6 inch diameter inside stainless pipe with 8 inch outside stainless covering that has a 1 inch layer of rock wool as an insulation barrier between the two different diameter pipes. That's what I use for my wood burning stove that I have in my mobile home. It keeps the inside pipe warm regardless of the temp outside while the outside pipe is same temp as surrounding air temp, hardly any creosote buildup maybe 1/8th of an inch over a 3 year burning cycle. It's expensive but well worth the cost due to less worries about chimney fires or having to clean it out.

Edward Van Natta: I am looking for details your production!

Will Douglas: they are 4 X 4 X 4 and if you dig down 2 ft you will warm the dirt floor once placed in the whole if you pre plan and coil 1/2" copper tube around your barrels after an inch of cob before you finish the mass you will have a water heater for the fish that will also heat the greenhouse.

mhpgardener: @jimmyjazz240 You must be in the city. Theres nothing like that available around here....unfortunately.

mhpgardener: @skittman1 Thank you kindly, much appreciated. :-)

mhpgardener: @manholewisdom Thx. Actually, that was my first thought, after watching so many rocket stove vid's. But I wasn't sure about keeping it from falling out the bottom, or exactly what to mix it with. So I just kept it simple. Yea...I need the height to get it up above the roof line of the GH. Compared to being outside last night..it was very cozy in there. A couple more nights of 20 degrees and 30 MPH winds and I'll put me a cot in there !

JTB1956: Your welcome. I'm not an HVAC mechanic but I qualify as an expert on solid fuel. The scenario I mentioned about drawing negative pressures around a vessel is the central reason why folks (including HVAC guys) get themselves in trouble when trying to add on a "furnace" to an existing appliance by just hooking up to the cold air return side. It works until it doesn't...or your homeowners policy is cancelled. Pressurizing means that leakage can only go INTO the firebox...not out. Safety is #1.

Willie Bill: I have my woodburner in my garage, i bult a heat exchanger on it, and piped the heat into the house i have double wall pipe going up the outside wall of my garage,i burn it kinda hot most of the time, i have never had a problem with kreeasoate, its been working for about 18 yrs, looks like you have dun a great job theit, and i am sure you will get it right, hang in their, and God bless ya. One more thing, i have a veido on youtube explaineing how i did it.

webcajun: You’ve got a good head on your shoulders Bobby, good work. Donald

clay mcwilliams: Bobby thanks for sharing, I dont expect an answer, but where do you get the money to do all of this stuff? would love to do it all myself,green house,hydrponics,etc but i raise a garden so i can eat and most of time can not afford all the seed and fertilizer that i need. again thanks keep up the good work

beachfiredude: Great tube thanks

MrVTHILLBILLY: good vid bobby you should have add's on your vid's you make good vid's. and on the to the stove if you were to lay some fire brick or sand in it it would help it last longer just a thought

mhpgardener: Thank you sir. I have considered a wood boiler, but I found several thousand reasons to stick with the barrels, LOL

mediamaker2000: So, in summary, you replaced that turbocharger with a supercharger, bored out the motor and upped the cam, and added high efficiency exhaust? Very nice! If only Verizon could do that with your internet connection!

mhpgardener: @nanmol123 I get a few dislikes here and there, for whatever reason. But its comments like yours that more than make up for every single thumbs down I've ever gotten. And furthermore...theres a credit that will more than offset any that I get in the future. Thank you very much for the kind words and support, I truly appreciate it.

bkbball22: What about old telephone Internet. I here they have make some good advances in it. It should be a lot faster then old dial up.

toddlfrank: Bobby thanks for the shout out I just hope you got some good info out of the videos. Todd

mhpgardener: @gwinplumbr A boss? wow..I'll try to ease up on them a little bit ! Yes, I have considered compost piles in the small GH. I don't have enough to really help right now, but maybe by next winter I'll be more prepared. And yes, aquaponics is on my to-do list. Its not too far down either, so maybe in the next few months I'll put something together.

elkrivermr: @chucks970 my local coop carries the water minerals (not chemicals) for hydroponics but you have to go in and ask

Brad Gray: you're kidding right.. you don't need any help. You have a good handle on things for sure.

mhpgardener: @raw5069 :-)

mhpgardener: @Mrcaffinebean Thank you.

selfreliantboy: lol verizon is a premium company . behind times if you ask me .(much better deals out there now) Ive been wit them for just as long as you . most of the time i don't use all my phone minutes and they don't roll them over . there was a few times i went over minutes and still got charged . the 4 g broadband is nice now that i live in portland OR ,but its expensive ! could get internet here for 35 bucks a month but am on a contract with verizon .Very frustating ! coold that you are gon do aqaupon

MrSynystyr: See if this company is in your area. They are growing fast and cover a good part of rural areas. Good and dependable service and really cheap rates. Plus when they upgrade they don't charge for the increased speed. Good luck! //home.suddenlink(dot)net/

beachfiredude: good tubes thanks

mhpgardener: Thanks for the advice. I'm no HVAC expert or Mech Eng, so I'd be getting input from a couple of my friends who are. This is one of those ideas that just bounces around for a very long time. It might happen, but not anytime soon.

JTB1956: If you do something like that you'll need to pressurize the area around the stove and heat exchanger....NOT draw a negative pressure around the vessel....in other words push air INTO the space around the stove. If you draw air away from it (causing negative pressure) you have the potential of pulling carbon monoxide thru any flaw in the assembly or in the pipe and sending CO where you're trying to heat.

mhpgardener: I've been toying with the idea of building a steel box around a barrel setup. It would be set up outside, and then I'd run 2 ducts into the house...one for the heat, one as a return. Just an idea right now. I'd have to work out the specifics and see if it was worth messing with.

mhpgardener: @Teddybearcop48 :-)

mhpgardener: @bowhunter2439 I couldn't do an inline for sure..the creoste, even a small amount, would mess that up. I've seen fans that mount to the outside of the pipe, just above the stove, to help with draft. But when they are blowing, they are forcing are up the pipe that has to come from somewhere...meaning its likely being pulled thru cracks in the building. Thats what I'm trying to prevent, and the initial reason for the lower blower intake.

mhpgardener: Thanks. I've seen the heat reclaimers, pretty cool little gadgets. I do have a better fan for this winter, and better quality wood. It's pretty much all oak this time, with very little softer woods. I haven't cranked them up yet, but it won't be much longer. Cold weather is on the way.

mhpgardener: @toddlfrank Oh yea, that was some good stuff. My biggest problem is the fact that I don't weld too good on thin metal. So I'm hesitant to cut holes in the barrel for pipes. Also, I'd have to find a way to get the secondary intakes to function independently..since they don't need to be working until the stove temps get high enough...if I understand it correctly.

bowhunter2439: Oh as for the chimmney stack , I wonder if an inline vent fan would have made any difference , drawing the air out the stack instead of pushing it ...???... somthing to ponder as I know some stack systems are designed this way for boilers and furnecess and such , just a thought ....

lifeinthailand: Slow internet sucks, I have always had that problem in Thailand, But at the new place it well be a much bigger problem,When I am there I can check my email some times...lol Youtube out of the question, Not going to happen.

mhpgardener: @JaxRL LOL.... let me see how VZ decides to treat me going forward. They turned me loose the last few days, but told me that at 2GB, they would cut me back again. I've already gonna over that. So I'll see what happens. Either way...I wont do any more "ranting" ! Thanks Jackie. ;-)

mhpgardener: @mysciencenow Yep, his was one of the videos that I watched in Nov '10 when I built my first stove. There's a lot of good videos on the basic construction.

gwinplumbr: You raise veggies like a boss! Just earned yourself a sub. question... have you ever thought about using compost to help heat your green house? and You ever think about using fish to do some hydroponic veggie growing/ fish farming?

mhpgardener: @MyDaddysgirl44 Thank you mam ! ;-)

mhpgardener: @TheSemperfidude Question...do I put the perlite in there dry, mix it with something, or wet it down? And its gonna make one heck of a mess when I take it down in May. Nope...sure don't want any chimney fires. I keep and eye on it. Regarding the RM heater..... draw me a diagram, proving that it can work on a large scale...and then I "might" listen to ya ! LOL

imasurvivornthriver: YOU ARE AWESOME! Thanks for sharing all this with us.
