Hi Nice instructable. I have two questions:1. Have you measured the electric consumption?2. Wouldn't it be more energy efficient if you had a lid and thermally insulated the box?Thanks!

Hi. I'm considering building a rocket mass heater of sorts using the available space in my fireplace. I think the rocket stove part should be ok, but I'm not sure how much heat will I be able to trap in the small area with solid brick and how effective the release to the living room will be. The attached pictures illustrate the design I've created based on the available space. The gray-ish bricks are refractory bricks and constitute the main and secondary combustion cameras. The reason why the design is open at the back is because it will join the back of the fireplace which is made of refractory brick. The red bricks are solid bricks which are supposed to capture the heat. The grey area at the bottom is the available area in the fireplace floor. It can't be taller than 48 centimetres b...

The red bricks are solid bricks which are supposed to capture the heat. The grey area at the bottom is the available area in the fireplace floor. It can't be taller than 48 centimetres because the fireplace is 50 cm high. I'm considering the possibility of drilling through the outer wall of the fireplace to install one fan on each side. It would force cold air through the side red brick panels which hopefully would increase the heat exchange efficiency. My question is, should I even bother? I'm all for burning wood efficiently, but if it's just to see the heat leave the house through the chimney, then it is probably not worth the effort.

In the video you drill two tiny holes over both the top corners of the switch. Why?
Great stuff. Again. Just a question. Why do you choose CA glue instead of, for example, epoxy? And is CA glue inert? Aren't there any allergy issues with it?
Hi. Great stuff, dude. I have two questions regarding the reuse of e-components.1. I imagine that resistors will be pretty stable, but will components like capacitors, diodes and even chips change their spec values with time? In the case of capacitors it is very common to see them bloated or even ruptured.2. I have tried in the past to remove components and maybe it could be because I have very poor soldering skills (which I actually do), but I got the impression that desoldering takes longer than soldering. Won't the heat, if applied for a long period, damage the components?Thanks.
Would it be worth to apply this solution to an eastward facing garage door? I live in Portugal and I'm moving to a house which is at a latitude of 38.7º. But being eastward it wouldn't get more than 3 hours per day of solar exposure (I'm guessing). I'm wondering if there would be any significant gains in a similar solution.

Hi,I'm planning on building a workbench but for the tabletop I'm considering glueing pinewood panels and additionally securing them with dowels instead of the option you took here to glue boards and secure them with rods. I figured that the glueing process would be simpler and I don't have long clamps that I would need to secure the boards during the glueing process. The pinewood panels are not expensive and I can stack four of them to make a 62 mm (2.44 inches) tabletop which sounds sturdy enough to me. My question is if you can see any reason against this approach.Thanks!
The build looks good, but is the grinder weather-proof? Seems like an odd place to place a workshop electrical tool.
Great stuff! Loved the idea of stuffing the boards and disks inside the desk but then I read that comment about interferences. Maybe that could be solved with a metal grid box. It wouldn't interfere with cooling but would hopefully work as a Faraday cage. Additionally you could also include some liquid cooling system to make it all the more quiet. I don't care much for the black, though, but that's a matter of taste. I understand that using some good looking wood would make it more expensive.
Good job, very clearly explained.
Hi. Nice project, I didn't expect the MDF could be made to look so clean. Why did you do the shelves in OSB? Was it because it is cheaper, for aesthetic reasons, some other reason?
I'm not sure if it would be possible to pull it off, but you could have tried to cut the top and bottom panels on the borders so that they would fit inside the box, leaving the wood veneer intact to cover the edges of the front and back panels. I hope you get my meaning, I realize my explanation may be a bit confusing.
Scratch 15, replace with 20!
I thought you were going to explain how to avoid spending 15 euros in a Cointreau bottle. I stopped mixing margaritas because it's such an expensive cocktail. And you missed the salt in the rim of the glass in the video.
Love it! I can already see a world of possibilities
