        the secret of happiness is sharing...so would you so kindly share your knowledge and give us more information how you created the stove ( it is lovely ) expecially what did you use for cutting the metal, measuremts etc. Tonight I will be scouring my local garages for some...........

        The first thing I learned when I served an engimeering apprenticeship many moons ago was "The secret of being a good engineer is being a good guesser"
        The second thing I learned was how to turn a wheel barrow into a bed!............ but we'll not go into that!
        I didn't use a measure, because I couldn't be bothered to look for one in the workshop!
        I would guess the top door is roughly 8" X 6" in old money or 200mm X 150mm
        The bottom door is roughly 8" X 3" for raking out ash
        .
        DISCLAIMER:_I will let you know how I made mine but will take no blame for any accidents to others. I am a competent metal worker and the work should only be carried out if you feel reasonably competent yourself observing all H&S rules as appropriate...you have been warned!!!!

          Dammed hot is all I can say!! A lot of heat comes from the flue pipe as well.

          These things can glow red if you use coal or coke and when its going full blast even with timber you can't stand closer than 3'0" away!

          I made the mistake of putting a pasty on it to warm up and within 5 mins it was cremated to a lump of charcoal!

          I have started to use damp timber to slow it down and if packed full it will burn all day! With a damper in flue I would think 24hrs would eventually be possible!
          The greenhouse I have it in is roughly 10' X 14' and it heats that no bother. With large bubble insulation and a better breezeblock heat sink around it I could probably keep the greenhouse to a range of 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit! I suppose temperature controled vents would be beneficial as well!

            Hello Snadger and many thanks for your reply. I will have a go at it as soon I get a gas cylinder. If you hear of an explosion in the south east....don't worry it would be me!!!

              Bit precise there Snadger, how about 2'11&1/2" away?
              Always thank people who have helped you immediately, as they may not be around to thank later.

                  You could drill and bolt on the hindges and flue. Good design beats the old oil drum.

                    I'd love to be a creative type

                    Snadger.. excellent idea you had there. Commercially? they'd go for around 1700 each.. have a look here for something similar (used old gas bottles)
