I like your style and metalworking by hand. It was painful watching you drill/saw/grind the thicker steel sheet and brought back memories of gouged knuckles. You can cut thicker mild steel sheet with a jig saw if you have a variable speed jigsaw with a good blade and the correct technique. 1. test the steel sheet for hardness with a file. The file should dig in readily. 2. choose the best quality blade you can afford and get the correct number of teeth per inch (tpi). Rule of thumb is 3 teeth engaged. so a 1/4 sheet (plate) would take a 12 tpi blade. .. too few teeth and you will grab; too many teeth and you will not remove enough material (see#3). 3. steel work-hardens so you want a slower blade speed with an aggressive feed rate. Don't push too hard just make sure you are not burnishing the steel or it will become hardened and your blade will dull quickly. This is particularly important for cutting stainless steel. Hopefully this helps reduce the effort for those with a variable speed jigsaw (or access to a variac - variable ac voltage). You can also use an cordless jigsaw or reciprocating saw. A narrow blade is good for curves while a broad blade is good for straight cuts. I am building one of these for a winter camping trip so I will watch your third video for more tips! Thanks a bunch!

Please consider letting us place orders, a few at a time, with you reasonably well compensated. Great job. I enjoy your presentations as you must know based on your UKvid success. Keep up the good work.

We must have missed the part where you show the design for the pellet delivery system. We've used pellet stoves for 35 years and it seems that if we just dumped pellets into that "hopper" they'd all fall down in a clump and the fire would follow the pellets up into that "hopper". You must have some sort of baffling system so that gravity feeds the pellets a few at a time into the flames. How did you do that?

I just found this. You have done a wonderful job here. I have subscribed because your narrative is so soothing and informative. I do have a question as I am beginning to build your stove. The propane tank did you just need one tank and cut it in half? Or better yet how long did you cut the pieces for the flue and hopper
thizizliz Рік тому
Wow! Gotta love that it's so much recycling too. Very clever.
Bp323 Рік тому
i must have missed something - how did you cut the propane cylinders safely? I want to do this but I'm afraid of igniting any residual gas with a spark from my saw blade or grinder :p

Fascinating! I have some mechanically inclinations (DNA), yet haven't had a lifetime of opportunities to develop those talents much...I have most of the tools and with your instructions and a slight learning curve (bending the metal) I could do this! It is wonderful seeing how you designed and create the pieces for this camp stove. Thanks so much for sharing your labor of love.

I really like your statement about the path to getting there. That statement alone is part of the reason I am now a new subscriber. In my channel as I suppose most channels you take something from each channel you watch. You my friend have a channel and content I will watch. I hope you don't mind but I like your style and if you watch my channel in the future you may see bits and pieces of yourself in my videos. Thank you so much for your time and effort in producing your videos and projects.

Amazing project! I suppose if you have a big-enough hopper for the pellets it might burn all night? Looking forward to seeing the final testing in the Aliner.
Bad Goy- Varg Vikernes Division
Subbed! You've given me so many ideas and now I want to custom fab my own in door stove. I love the baffle chamber, this is indeed a huge problem with our potbelly as the combustion chamber allows the heat to exhaust straightaway, even choking the exhaust does not prolong the burn all that much. Couple this with heat loss through the exhaust pipe and it's quite inefficient. What are your thoughts on a double barrelled system with minor baffling in each? Would too much baffling smother the flames with exhaust gasses? Much love, Tynan
Bad Goy- Varg Vikernes Division
Slim Potatohead I shall certainly keep an eye on this endeavour of yours, great information and the response is much appreciated. Thanks Slim, take care and all the best. Good luck with the winter testing!
Slim Potatohead
Slim Potatohead Рік тому
Hi Tynan, being that this is my first stove, I expect I will have some tweaks as it gets worked in. The baffle seems effective so far, although I did end up adding more metal to the left side where the flame curves around as it was getting quite hot. I do get a lot of smoke the first few minutes, but the narrow chamber has not effected the intensity of the combustion. How narrow you can go is really hard for me to say without experimentation. Thanks! SP

Hi Joel, The goal was to make a stove that could be made with tools from the average garage or home workshop. Also, using bolts and rivets means it is reversible should the design change later on. Thanks!

J Wagner Рік тому
Thoughts on cutting the thicker steel - I understand why you would make many holes with the drill, it seems faster. I think you would be able to cut the thick metal better with the saber saw. First, use a saw that has adjustable speeds, a slow cut is better for metal. It keeps the blade cooler and lasting longer. Second, go for a quality metal cutting blade, the expensive ones are worth the extra money. They will last longer than multiple cheap ones.
Slim Potatohead
Slim Potatohead Рік тому
Hi J, good advice, thanks! I did first try the metal blades with my jigsaw, but wore out the blades instantly (at $7 a blade). Drills were cheaper and easier to lube. SP

Fantastic stove but i feel a 4 inch angle grinder would be more use to you than a bench grinder because then you can use cutting discs to cut your metal instead of drilling loads of holes and hell of alot of filling ? Just saying thats all but brilliant build otherwise 👍👍👍👍
