glumpy10: 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?
Freddie Dan: freaking awesome nice job
Mark Lynch: Excellent very ingenious
John Parker: Gave you a like! Amazing work.
Chris Sandstrom: High quality vid. Phenomenal ingenuity sir! Thanks for the post!!
josh kane: 14 people are to stupid to understand the principle of waste oil
ushillbillies: Lots of great ideas...I need to see your air pump...I have built a couple
before for comperssed air ...but they were hard on compressors..
D eez: This is great but I need something more simple and use no electricity.
(unless stove can create electricity)
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
laura taylor: Hi Jeff,
thanks for your reply. I am now trying to source all or most of the parts
so i hope you don't mind answering the odd question every now and then.
What type of solenoid did you use?
Daniel Chisler: real sweet mate .I use resturant oil in my oil burner but it is a hobby and
takes patience to opperate.....
Brad hoffman: if you want more heat...and no i am not joking,...put the firepan in a pan
with water...will increase heat output massively
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!
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.
Anthony Sozio: Wow man! As an engineering student this was alot of fun to watch!
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
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
Janus Zwart: Stunning system
William Weesner: whew, that is a finished product there my friend. the time invested is
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
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.
SecurityisaMyth: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. What a great job- you've
got me interested now.
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.
Rick Spears: Jeff, great job. Do you have pdf or jpg files with your wiring diagrams
available to download? Rick
lineman1954: outstanding work !
Niels M. Christensen: Niece to see, effektiv and cheap .
amc75matador: This is pretty neat setup, 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
Mark Loring: Dude, you are amazing!. Nice job!. Thanks for the video.
PleasantSuprise: Jeff, Nice heater! Would you know well would this work with WVO(Waste
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.
Steven Carter: Neet
Anthony Atkinson: Dude, This is amazing! You have really nailed it
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
Jamie Kroll: Would WVO work? or do you need the pop of dinosaurs?
