Neat - Whaddaya think of this stove????

PostBy: Gary in Pennsylvania On: Mon Nov 13, 2006 2:37 pm

OK....So I've had a pic of this stove on my 'puter for quite some time. I grabbed it at a timeframe when I was searching for small, inexpensive solid fuel burning stoves for a purpose other than burning fuel ( ....Don't ask! ).
I instantly fell in love with the look of this one ( it's the one named No.3 ). Can anyone ID it? Or tell me what it reminds you of??


Thanks!

Hey, those are really neat! I'm going to guess here, but I think the 3 in the first post were all made by the same guy who is obviously quite a craftsman. They are well done. The second post appears to be a manufactured stove. I bet the Coalman has a name for this style of stove.

You're right....The first three are made by the same person.....In Britain. And they are fully functional. They're intended to be used in small flats ( apartments ) and they do advertise the heat output....but they do so in kilowatts - And I dunno how to convert.
They are handmade one-offs and command quite a bit of money for their size! This is no lie....the smaller round one I like above is made out of a discarded LPG canister!
Although I knew all about them...I wanted to see if there are and others out there that look like them.

As for the second post...I truly have no idea who made that. I can't even remember if it came from an American domain or European domain.

Thanks!

I was going to say that but the style was a little odd, must be the UK style propane tank.

Here is the text from the site:

A new design partly made from 'found' materials, body constructed using an old LPG gas bottle. This stove uses the latest clean burn technology.
The inlet air entering via the butterfly valve at the base is pre- heated &blasted down at the fuel past the glass on the door. Burn rate/output is controlled by air & exhaust valves.


See the other.....uh.....designs here:

Gary,

You said you didn't know how to convert Kilowatts to btu's. First it probably states its energy output in kilowatt hours. This is the metric equivelent measure to the btu. 1 Kilowatt Hour equals 3412 btu's.
