This is the second version of the cheapest heater in the world. It is actually do much more effective. Maybe there are additional uses as you scale up the size . You could maybe boil water or heat up food.

6 x clay pot feet
1x nut roof style about 10 cm
2 x butterfly nut
3x washers same hole size as the bolt( M6 )

Step 2:

Firstly you will need to put the clay feet in the configuration show above in the big tray.

Step 3: Attach Smaller Clay Pots Together to Increase the Heating Element Apacity

Use the screw and nuts to pass through the hole at the bottom and use the washer as shown to block the holes completely both insode and outside the pots. and align the two smaller clay pots together as shown . this is done to increase the heating element capacity

Step 4: Screw Tight

when the two pots are correvlty aligned screw the buttefly nut tight to secure them together

Step 5: Add the Canldes and Extra Feet

Use the 5 canlde configuration and add the extra 3 feet on the reem of the pplate as shown. next reverse the smaller pots upsite down and use the small inside feet to prop up

This is a nice project, but not very effective as a "heater" the btu's of candle flame is far too small to be useful in that way. you be better served to use the pots as a fire pit or fill them with charcoal for heat. but is does make a nice little dim light.

YOU DON'T HAVE to PAY TAX?? there is no TAX on EITHER of your receipts!

UK do pay taxes. V.A.T. it's called. value added tax. It's included in the price, that's all. I lived there for awhile back in the 90's.

So? what do you care?

you're angry that i showed jealousy? wow, sorry.

uh, sorry; couldn't concentrate on anything else once i noticed no tax. 8^/

Author is in the UK like me, we pay tax on (most) purchases (VAT) but it's all taken care of behind the scenes not added on as a 'sales tax' separately as in the US. I guess because we have just one rate for the whole country, we're not dozens of seperate states all setting their own rates.

oh-h-h-h! so that's what is different about value-added tax. thanx!

This is great for a yurt or teepee but houses today are built so tight I would really worry about the smoke and the candels burning up all the oxygen in the room ,if you connect the hole in the top pot to a small diameter flex hose(metal) and poke it out a window or up a chimmeily flue it would be much safer.....WCH

There are exactly zero houses in the world in which 5 tea candles would burn up all the oxygen in the room. You're aware you're using a fair amount of oxygen just by breathing, right? A house built that tight would kill you anyway.

I see your concern for sure, however from the video I think that a lot of the heat is coming out of the top hole and that would all be lost if directed out of a window?

lighting candles without anything else will do the same thing.

I would add a thermoelectric layer to this and use it as a charger for my cell phone out at the hunting cabin or camp site.

VERY INTERESTING, I THINK THEY SHOULD START MAKING FURNACES OUT OF CLAY INSTEAD OF METEL

I'm thinking about a clay oven for bread or pizza Some primitive people still use clay for constructing cooking devices

I'm not sure that would work, but it could!

I bet you any money you havent even tried to make one . You talk about fires to spread fear.This is safer than your kettle . You are officially "TROL OF THE DAY"
