i was on Youtube last weekend & got on to oil burning alternatives for stoves & pot bellies so off i ushered to have a go at making 1 of these new beaut things & here is the results of the build
the 3rd pic shows the steel chalk ring mark i drew on the cast iron plate from a outdoor BBQ which shows the vent or breather holes i drilled 5/8' ,the little stack is 4" steel pipe heavy type for welding
the slotted hole was there ,so i used it as a filler to fill the unit with used oil with a steel funnel & i use a little bit of Methylated spirits to light it with & i just use the stove flutes to control the burn with '
it works really well with very little smoke at all compared to wood burn , but the oil is pretty clean that i'm using though
it burnt for about 2 hrs or bit longer with 3/4 full of oil but would probably burn longer if using heavier type oils
