I am designing my own compact wood gas stove that will accomplish all I need in a cook kit, and serve as storage for when not in use.


Here are a few pictures of a homemade WoodGas stove I made several months ago. It really gets hot, if you look at the cross-bar pot support I made for it, you can see where itís melted. I made the cross bar out of 1/8 inch aluminum and it melted the first time I fired it up. The stove itself is made from a stainless steel canister set I got at a flee market for $1.50.

It puts out a ferocious flame with the fan on high. It makes more noise then my Svea 123. I donít see myself using the fan on high as itís just too hot, other then bringing a big pot of water to boil very fast. For cooking low speed seems to work well. I have only cooked with it in the garage on the workbench so far.

Bob,

That is an excellent replacement handle. That removes the knuckle toaster design of the Thermette.

To post an image, just copy the image properties and click on the third icon in the post entry page, paste the image properties to the window that opens up and there you go....



I brought over one of your handle shots....I hope you do not mind.

That is a neat looking blast furnace stove too...

You have already done all the hard work getting the images hosted somewhere...that is where most folks have difficulty.

Good shots in both those photo threads. Nice work.

Just trying to post a picture to see if it works. This one is the homemade version of the WoogGas stove (www.woodgas.com )

OK....I grabbed this image property..

http://photos.toast.net/ImageResizeCache/9586f14a56a6bcde92962426a6a5ffde.jpg

Then put that in the image brackets [img]PasteThatProperty[/img]



And shazam...

I am not quite sure why your's is not working but maybe the property you copied is not quite complete or right.

Ah, I think I see the problem...you cannot post a slideshow address in the image brackets...you can only put individual images there...these have to have a .jpg ending to work.

So you need to go to your slide show and choose an image, right click on it and go to properties, copy those properties then paste it inbetween the image tags....try that.

My ISP gives me space (gives as long as I pay my internet bill) to store images on-line so a place to put them was easy. They are the ones with the built in slide show.



OK Iím trying this again, if it works here is a close up picture of the original coat-hanger handles.

Here is a picture of the other handle I made for the second Thermette I bought and gave my brother for Christmas. I made it out of an auto window scraper handle and some steel that I bent to the shape I needed on a pan break.
