Introduction: Rocket Stove

About: I do stuff. Shut up.

This piece of engineering is a rocket stove. Ehm...

Step 1:

These are two pieces of stainless steel chimney pipes. I screwed them together.

Step 2:

These are drywall metal profile scraps. I made a back support out of one of them.

Step 3:

These are drywall metal profile scraps. I made a front support out of one of them.

Step 4:

These are drywall metal profile scraps. I made a front opening divider out of them.

Step 5:

These are drywall metal profile scraps. I made a grill out of them.

Step 6:

This is a rocket stove. I'ts made out of junk. It works.

    Question 4 years ago on Step 6

    Metal seems thin. Can this take the extended heat?

    It's not something meant to last long. It's just to make some extra use of some junk.

    When was installed on the heater indoors the chimney pipe was heated to red hot a couple of times - that's why it looks the way it looks. So, my answer: "Not for long".

    It would be nice, very easy to make, but when putting flu cleaner in my stove, I burned holes in the ss stove-pipe, nearly caused a chimney fire! If I made it, bearing in mind my experience, perhaps I'd use a very large pipe and try to put a liner of some sort with sand to protect the stove-pipe. A long can or something similar. I suppose if it was new (mine was quite old!) it would last better. My new wood stove has a cast iron piece to attach the flu and for the smoke regulator. I'm only dubious after my nasty experience with flu cleaner, honestly, which fell into the trap on the T at the bottom! I'd like some advice, has someone else a long term view on these pipes, as I have a couple nearly new that could be recycled with this idea, so easy! Lovely if it lasts.
