Working on getting the 520 set up for fire soon. I will be using a 55 gallon plastic drum for a bin as I am limited on space.
My main question is on the length I need. Can a person use just the 46 inch auger (from threads to drive) or the auger that goes through the pot? That would put the barrel rather near to the furnace if I am looking right. Can this be done safely, or do you recommend putting the second section on. If I use the second section I may need to cut it down, which isnt any big deal. But just wondering about using the short auger for now. I know about having two to two and a half flights sticking out of the pipe.
Anyone have any pics of just using the short auger?
Thanks in advance
