Drip-feed waste-oil burner hopefully
« on: April 06, 2020, 09:21:38 AM »
I talked a little the other day about waste-oil and a burner

Coming up in a few minutes is a wee blurb and some pics

Lots of you guys know a bit about this sort of stuff - so I figure there's plenty to learn

But first:  a year or two ago I rambled on about building a heavy steel woodstove in my shed/workshop/house/whatever it is

My boss had a big Safety-in-Employment drive and threw all my perks out of the workshop (I am much safer now, thanks) so it got carted up to the Bay of Plenty and installed without some of the internal baffling.  "One Day"

Despite that it runs fine and it's very satisfying to sit in front of of an evening digesting dinner cooked on the top of it and listening to the fire muttering to itself and the kettle hissing quietly just "off the boil" in the cooler corner away from the flue

Just thought I'd attach a pic of that one.  It's not "signed off" yet because there is still internal work to do - but it's producing heat and very hot water in the cylinder & cooking my dinner.  So that's almost a "win"
