Hi Jack, I have been thinking about something similar for a while now after someone said something to me about a gas cylinder being drip fed waste oil to heat a workshop so it was good to see something that looks acceptable in the house. I watched that video and a few others too and spotted some refinements that could be made, i.e. a baffle plate, air inlet and a flat piece on top for a saucepan for example. I was wondering about the paint, does it disappear after a few uses or is it something similar to or better than radiator paint? How much was it and where was the car boot sale? I have a friend who is handy with a welder so I might ask him to knock one up for me either.

i know someone who made one - i have not seen it, but his design left the cylinder standing up, albeit upside-down, i think.

Having lived in a caravan for two winters with a gas bottle stove, I can see two potential problems. 1) Your door handle will get hot enough to cause severe burns. It'll work, but you'll need something to hold it shut, and keep a pair of pliers handy to open it with. If you have enough space, you could weld a bit of rebar (12") onto it, sticking out. That shouldn't get hot enough to cause problems. Otherwise, just use another implement to open and close it.

2) Draught control and ash. Mine had slots cut into the belly for the ash to fall through and create draw. They fell into a box welded into the bottom that had a sliding shutter at the front. That meant that I could control the airflow (too much air makes the whole thing glow red, and gets through wood in no time, too little or no air produces carbon monoxide), and clean out the ashes easily. When I went to bed, I would close it down completely on the embers and get residual heat through the night.

Edit. 3) Tips. You will need something to protect surrounding surfaces from the extreme heat. I stood it on a paving slab, and used scrapyard aluminum sheeting behind it to protect my cupboards, which not only reflected the heat, but really worked. You could touch the inside of the cupboard and it wasn't even warm.

You both have given me a lot to think about. I have a few design changes in mind too. Have a friend coming over this evening to bounce ideas off, he will be the one making it.
