Oil Burner: BEST DIY heater on Youtube and anywhere else I have ever seen!
The automation is simple yet effective and makes the heater entirely
practical and useful. It's one thing to get some oil to burn in the
backyard, it's quite another to put the energy to good practical use where
the heat can do some good.
This thing is clean, effective safe and practical. A person would pay many
thousands to get anything as effective in a commercial unit and then I
think still have more maintenance and issues.
I also love the fact you have fans on the thing to maximise the output and
utilise some of the heat from the flue. Very few people pay any attention
to all the heat going straight out there and do anything to utilise it. You
seem to have thought of everything with this setup.
One thing that may make the burner a little quieter is to use a blower from
something like a VW Kombi. They are 12V and would blow plenty of air for
your needs and are basically silent. There are other blowers from other
cars as well you could use if you had any interest in making the thing any
quieter that is. I kind of get the impression you are quite partial to the
old faithful smog pump you have now though! :0)
Brilliant job, I think this heater is definitely the Benchmark for all DIY
HappyScrappy47: Wow man, if I was half smart enough I would attempt this, but it's above my
head :) nice work! Like!!
Scott L: 2jeffs, NASA called, they are short a rocket scientist....
On average, how many gallons oil does your design use? What is your average
daily high and low temps when you have this fired up?
John Parker: Gave you a like! Amazing work.
Dunkirk NewYork: Awesome
BMAC VAGS: That is nice work
Kntryhart: Impressive! Thanks for posting!!
Freddie Dan: freaking awesome nice job
jimmytk: can you burn hydraulic oil also? awesome job!
John Hovan: Thanks for sharing! Is the top of the stove hot enough to boil water?
steve lee: Propper top notch video... Great guy and doesn't do drawings and plan's
before the build!! Just THE way it should be done, That's how you learn by
your mistakes... SUPERB keep it up fella.
Rob Abreu: Awesome.. Great job... I agree... I love this one.. as well... Thanks for
posting this info..
Inspironator: Liked and subscribed! I can see how a manual setup is possible, but an
automated setup like you show is so much nicer. I am amazed how clean the
glass remains. You've got a really nice setup with all the precautions --
just add an oil tank full sensor/light/buzzer and you'll likely never need
the oil overflow trough upstairs, but you probably have enough capacity up
there to last 18 mo. of oil collection. Awesome!
bos dad: This is what youtube should be all about. sharing idea's and design's that
help others. I have one question, can the smog pump be replaced by a simple
blower ? also, the 12v solenoid can be found on eBay for about 12.00
William Ward: Hi wonderful design you mentioned the age of the stove it looks brand new.
Please provide make and model. Also, do you know what the inside temp. is?
I am wondering if it could spin a vane in the summer that would be attached
to a generator. Again your design is wonderful. What are the storage
tanks? Looks like you got everything covered. Oh, nice restored gas pump in
the background your shop is spotless...
Phil Galati: Very Very nice
Rex Morgan: Fantastic work. I wish I had the skill set to put this together. This is a
sweet rig. Thermostat controlled, timers, relays, fault lights, pumps, fail
safes. Great work dude.
Dan Murphy: I see your thermostat is reducing the oil by the solenoid are you also
slowing down your air supply? Not quite getting what your putting down.. Is
the the smog pump for high pressure low volume air?
Just wondering, nice vid Murf!
radstorm: Awesome stove Jeff. You mentioned per season about 5 gallons of oil? How
long would a season be? How many btu do you think it puts out, or have you
ever measured that? Regardless thanks for being generous about sharing this
with others :)
Daniel Chisler: real sweet mate .I use resturant oil in my oil burner but it is a hobby and
takes patience to opperate.....
Anthony Sozio: Wow man! As an engineering student this was alot of fun to watch!
gregory nelson: Jeff- That was a great video and a super cool idea. Wow- you said that you
have plans for this, right? I would love to do a build like this, too. How
can I get a copy of them? I look forward to starting this.
Shai Hulud: nice thingy you got there, so you're telling me you heat your house like
this ? Here in France everybody pay gas or electricity to do so :o
Janus Zwart: Stunning system
William Weesner: whew, that is a finished product there my friend. the time invested is
Nuvadauba numele: Very interesting design, congrats! I was wondering, how much oil does it
consumes? Thank you, all the best!
Ronald Cassner: one more question jeff can you use solid or does it have to be hollow
center pc. in center of pot to burn right.
Sampo Jokimäki: Wow this is a really nice DIY-setup!
Orlando Pereira: Where in Canada are you using it and does it heat your shop well? how big
is your shop?
Jason Hess: 12:53 "I have a ton of time in perfecting this, this is all my origional
design" I cant spell either but much respect at a finly crafted furnace
SecurityisaMyth: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. What a great job- you've
got me interested now.
Jerry Knitter: Thanks Jeff for sharing this. It is going to be our spring project this
year because trying to heat a 60 x 60 truss roof building with propane is
futile! I just have 1 question the hub in the center of the pot is height
and diameter critical? I am assuming it is stainless steel as the pot is.
Les Cassady: Would this unit be safe to install in a concrete basement for an old farm
house to help out with heating the house in the winter time? Or not
Tcmtech: Converting a fuel oil furnace burner is rather easy.
If you can get the used oil up to around 200 - 240 F at the nozzle it will
ignite and spray just like fuel oil and diesel fuel do. I just made a
preheater unit out of a 3" long 1"dia copper tube that has a simple 1/4" x
2" 200 watt cartridge heater and a thermocouple.
The oil passes through one passage that is 5/16" dia with a 5/16" dia
threaded rod inside it to keep the oil flow to the outside off the passage.
For temp control I used a off the shelf programmable temp controler unit.
Other than that I have a solenoid valve that bypasses the oil flow from the
nozzle (Keeps it from dripping) until the preheater temp reaches ~190 F
then applies full pump pressure above that.
josh kane: 14 people are to stupid to understand the principle of waste oil
1RogerRoger1: I'm very impressed. Very clever design. Artfully executed. Skillfully
presented and explained. You've given me a lot to consider. Thanks!
Cmoa Bob: Jeepers, that is truly impressive!
Dang, people like you make me realize just how lazy the rest of us become
and how much we depend on gizmos other people think up while we just
happily pay through the nose. Your pioneering spirit and self-reliance are
something you should be proud of; and thanks for sharing!
Bryan J. Smith: Very cool...uh...hot!
Sharethegospel1two1: I really liked this video, Thanks for sharing.
Jim's How-to Videos: very good video, your one smart dude.
Terry Schramm: Great video, thank u, nice job
Dave Reinhardt: This was nice. I liked your set up and liked this video. Now I need to
Southpaw Patriot: Dude, you are amazing!. Nice job!. Thanks for the video.
PleasantSuprise: Jeff, Nice heater! Would you know well would this work with WVO(Waste
Nancy King: I'm getting mine together thanks for your help. Another question-- my old
system used 1/4 pipe is this the same for you? Will 3/8 help at all?
nezar sweiti: It is relay nice job, design is great , think it is the most efficient
design of waist oil stove ever seen on YouTube. So clean around.
MrAirshot: so this is not drip feed style ,so how exactly you can spray the oil with
this kind of very low pressure ? and does the filtered oil do ignite more
easily than the non filtered ?
John D: Do you boil water for aerating the room or making a stew on top of the
Marcel Barros: Hey Jeff, i like you oven very much! It gives me a lot of inspiring tips.
