Side air supply wood stove on 08/14/2007 12:49:35 MDT Print View

I use a separate computer turbo fan as air supply for my side-opened wood stove. I found it is easy to use and easy to carry. It works very efficiently to reduce weight and to avoid burning down.

Stove 117g
Pot stand 30g
(The complete structure is made of iron)
Ventilator 18g
Lithium battery 22g

A Tangential Exhaust Supply Fan??? on 08/14/2007 16:03:00 MDT Print View

BRILLIANT!

PS -I'm pretty sure the right term is tangential...

Anyhow, nicely done!

Hi~Dan,
The burning time is decided by the wood quality you chosen. Generally may maintain 4-10 minutes by huge flame and another 5-30 minutes by remaining charcoal burning.
Boiling time:2-3 minutes for 2 cups cold water if you choose proper wood.

Hi~ Joshua,
You are right! The right term is tangential fan...

Hi~Glenn,
You looks like a psychologist...

LOL - that is hilarious. That pic is 15 years old. I've since added a goatee and now shave my head. Now I look like a biker, or a bouncer. :o)
