In the back ground of the last photo I see a ceiling fan setting on a bucket. Use it! Put it in the highest spot in the ceiling and have it blowing down. Preferably in the center of the room. This will make a huge difference. I converted my double barrel wood stove to burn waste oil and have never looked back. Took me several years to come up with a simple burner that burned clean but now I can throttle the stove from warm to red hot and my non insulated shop is toasty warm even when below zero. If I was good with this darn computer I would make a diagram like yours of the burner and post it. Extremely easy to make. My stove pipe is old 8" auger tubing. It goes out the back wall where it tees into the vertical pipe. The bottom of the vertical pipe sets on the ground and runs up the back of the shop to above the peek. Been there for 30 years and has worked like charm.
Good luck with your project. What program do you use for your drawings? They look good.


Would love to see how you designed the waste oil burner.
Especially the throttling part of the design.
Not to steel this thread perhaps on a new thread.
Thanks in advance.

I think Chuck has me headed in the right direction. If I get a drawing done I will start a new string.

:hijacked: Well I tried google sketch up and what I've discovered is that I can't even draw a straight line with it. So I will build another burner and take photos of it. I've used the other one for 3 years now and I have been wanting to enlarge the preheat pot anyway so I'll start another string then.
Back to Chucks wood stove.

Sketch up can be a bit of a challenge to start with. I also have this on my computer: progeCAD: progeCAD Smart 2009
More like Autocad for those of you so inclined.

here are some pictures.

This is my homemade double walled section for where it goes through the roof. The 6" sections runs straight through this contraction made of a 6" to 8" increaser, a section of 8" pipe, and a 8"6 reducer.

Neat and clean installation. I think your building is about a hundred years newer than mine so should be easy to heat. Sell that propane tank and buy another tractor.

Ahhhh Yes, there is nothing better than that nice wood heat and smell that comes from a wood stove.In Ontario here, the insurance company's think your going to blow the whole town up ,even though years ago that's how alot of us use to heat our homes and our parent's, and grandparents,and so on.....You know back in those good old days ! Oh by the way , that looks great Chuck.

Sell that propane tank and buy another tractor.


If I had another heat source for the house that propane tank would be a lot smaller.

That will take the chill off things. Looks like a good installation. Good luck with it.

Great ideas and I 'm going to double-wall mine in a similar manner next week. I'd like to offer a suggestion too if that's O.K.? Mine was similar before I relocated the stove (similar roof). Up hill from the pipe, where it joins the roof rib would pack full of standing water and also pine needles . Finally, I installed a piece of flashing to "raise" the flat area between the ribs so that run-off would go around the pipe. This next hole will be dead-centered on the rib.
