    Genetically they are the same. How they can be prepared and sold differs. I'm sure they started using the term flaxseed oil to help distinguish it from boiled linseed oil. But cold pressed linseed oil is cold pressed flaxseed oil. Same plant.

    5/8" should be close to his 15mm pipe. seems like an easy place to start combined with 1/2" dowel. I think I'd like to try an aluminum rod with a teflon ring, just to see if it would work and last.

    How to build a Rocket Mass Heater

    I would check a few things. First make sure your ash door has a good seal so no combustion air can leak into the system from the ash grate and turn your wood feed into a chimney. Second make sure you have at least a hand width of space between the wood feed and body of the stove that covers the bell. The coals from the wood feed can radiate and heat up a surface too close and create an up draft making a virtual chimney. Third make sure your house chimney does not catch wind at a funny angle and create back pressure.
