    It’s very important to keep in mind that when there isn’t sufficient oxygen for a fire to breath, there will not be a fire at all. Including ventilation will greatly increase your chances of maintaining and even controlling your heat.

    I’m just wondering if that is gasoline in the gas can right next to where you are grinding?
    Cool project through. Thanks for sharing and not blowing yourself up.

    Do you have a materials list? How much would you charge to build me one? I would want one modification. The installation of a 60 foot copper coil to the bottom of the cook top with an inlet for cool water coming in and an outlet for hot water coming out. This would replace my current wood-burning pool heater!
