Rocket Stove, Go!

Part 3: Insulation and the Barrel

Insulation: perlite & clay slip
Pour insulation between stack and hardware mesh.
Burn the paint off the barrel.

Up-end barrel on stack.

Under that slab of marble is the manifold. It’s a space between the bottom of the barrel and the first length of stovepipe.

Here is a better picture. And another. From people who did a better job of remembering to take photos.

The feed (fire box)
Stovepipe snaking through future cob furniture
A "tee" in the pipe for ash clean out

I left for the day and returned to a blazing fire in the cob house! Pah!
