Have any of you ever tried making one of these or perhaps know the science behind it?

Have got hold of a gas bottle that I want to convert to a rocket stove for one of my employees. If it works well perhaps I'll mass produce them and make millions :p

Basically a hole will be cut in each end of bottle. One end will house the feed and burn chamber and the other the combustion chamber. Will post some pics soon...

Thanks in advance :D

Nope but have heard of guys accidentally knocking the head off one of those bottles and it would go through several walls like a rocket. :lol: :lol:

Eaustice on Mountain Men runs his truck off of one of these. Wood barrel in the back of the truck heating wood chips. Pipes it to his intake and drives off.

Have discarded gas bottle effort for now...

Tried the brick rocket stove for fun, something like this -

Tried L shape in square tubing but it's a mission to feed. Combustion great, no smoke.


Am working on this now :D -
