Posted on 09/30/2012 12:57:22 PM PDT by Kartographer
At Milkwood Farm we love both our rocket stove water heater and our mini rocket stove, but with winter taking hold Im dreaming of new ideas, so I thought Id review what else is out there.
DIY rocket stove technology is exploding world-wide at the moment heres a couple of the treasures Ive come across:
(Excerpt) Read more at milkwood.net ...
Thanks for the ping.
Here some links to thread I have posted:
First my own rocket stove that I built:
My Ammo Can Rocket Stove
And a link to the thread wherein I got the plans to build my stove:
Ammo Can Rocket Stove
Another neat little project:
Endless hot water without power!
I like that water heater!
A very interesting commercial rocket stove is the EcoZoom. Don't have one, but saw a friend's, and it burns very little twigs and generates a lot of cooking heat. Here is Jack Spirko demonstrating the EcoZoom.
I guess our Kelly Kettle is a rocket stove of sorts...boy that works so fast one of the best camping investments ever.
Thank you as always Kartographer for the hard work on these!
What do you do with the ashes?
Fellow preppers I give you the face of why OPSEC is so important. The DHS toadie Yaedstick.
You are correct in all but motive.
I had my bike stolen recently. Not a great bike but I liked it. Someone else saw it and decided they liked it too.
My next bike will be stored out of sight and locked up.
Now is that because I want people to beg me to use my bike?
Or is it because I would like to keep my bike?
I did just buy a ready made one from StoveTec in Oregon. Normally I like to build things but this fall wanted to use the time to work on other hobbies — on this last “normal” Autumn before all hell breaks loose.
Hang one in the shower upstairs and have a hot shower. Hang one at the bathroom sink upstairs. Hang one at kitchen sink and one in downstairs bathroom sink. Anywhere you want running water when you don't have running water, use a Camp Shower.
I enjoyed it even if the others didn't.
“And without the begging, whats the fun in being a prepper?”
If you aren’t going to prepare anything now when you can, don’t expect someone else to feed your lazy self.
“I did just buy a ready made one from StoveTec in Oregon.”
I’ll check on these since I can’t make one myself.
Could you use it to produce lye as an ingredient for soap?
What would be of immense help is a central Freeper repository of all documents related to survival, rather than each of us storing our own. We then have a single source for all of this rather than a dispersion of this valuable information. It is then downloadable for us all on a regular basis. This includes links and documents, webpages, etc.

Believe me, the feeling is mutual. Oh well. When your wife and kids are starving we shall see how much contempt and ridicule you can muster up. Hopefully you’ll get it all back in spades.
But I have a feeling you’ll be one of those who stomp your little feet off to the “authorities” and demand those “hoarders” be forced at the point of a gun to “share” with petty little men like you. It’ll be for the children....
Have a nice day.
Please stop feeding the troll.
That is based on your opinion - you evidently want to set yourself on a higher plane than those of us who want to protect/save our families IN CASE of disaster.
We are the happiest people on the planet, full of confidence we can survive and repair our great country if that becomes necessary.
My opinion is, you are pessimistic and contemptible and Un-American.
I’m through now with him.

My recently completed Rocket Stove. I now have the fuel chamber cover with damper in order to regulate the burn rate and temperature of charcoal briquettes. No picture of damper yet.
Talk about not getting it. I’d hand you a quarter and tell you to go buy a clue, but it would be a waste of a perfectly good quarter.
Who do you think had those heaters and food you needed? Who,had the extra fuel stored? Who had the gen sets that were the beacons of light and power for those weeks?
And where the hell do you get off calling us selfish? We are the ones preparing ourselves, our families, and our friends. We are the ones telling folks that they should take reasonable and prudent preparations in order to deal with just the types of long term disruptions you mentioned. We are the ones who are going to be able to say “ Thanks, but we are all good here. But there is this dipwad who calls himself Yardstick just down the road. We hear he’s in a world of hurt.”
We will be the ones who AREN’T stressing the supply chain so goods can and services can get through to the ape brains who weren’t ready. That’s about as unselfish an attitude as I can imagine. We are spending our own money, out of our own pockets, so we won’t be a burden on the first responders.
You have a mighty sick view of what constitutes selfishness.
I would say so, but there is so little ash I wouldn’t think it would be enough.
Very good work! I have gotten a hold of a 5 gallon metal pail as soon as I scrounge up a lid I am thinking of building one and then seeing if I can’t adapt a large clay flower pot to make a kind of oven.
You do great work!
Very nice craftsmanship!
Not a Troll he’s like I said a DHS pet RAT.
I honestly think that this guy will exactly be the type that I have written and should shtf he will be the type that will turn you in to punish you for your selfishness and hoarding.
I don’t hate him I really pity him and look on him and his type as just another of the serious obstacle that must be considered in a shtf situation. I also see his post as a learning moment for new preppers it’s had to imagine that there are people like Yardstick who call themselves conservatives it’s a good lesson for new preppers in the importance of OPSEC.
Rule #1 of Prep Club: You Do Not Talk About Prep Club...
Uh huh. I love how you defensively portray yourselves as unselfish yet every third thread is about how to hide your preps from your neighbors.
Right now there is plenty of water and food so storing either one is not hoarding. When there is little to be had, we won’t be needing that so it can go to those who need it.
I prepare for myself and two ultra-liberal family members who don’t have squat and won’t store anything. Am I going to laugh at them when there is a collapse - no, I’m going to water and feed them because I love them and they will pitch in and help in any way they can. I can’t save the world, but I can save them.
If we were going to the “company store” and stealing stuff that is scarce, then we could be called selfish. Using our own money to buy items that are plentiful now, is our business.
“unAmerican and contemptible...When you cross that line I think its appropriate to mock and ridicule you.”
It’s silly of you to think being self sufficient is “unAmerican and contemptible”.
Yardstick intends to be one of the beggers that thinks her ‘ridicule’ will force you to give her everything that you have, as though we’re all as thin skinned as she is.
I would rate that particular video as a dud, if he was really trying to demonstrate how to do it.
They don't want anyone to prepare or if they do they want them to put up a sign saying that the food is down in the basement, the silverwear is in the third drawer down and please don't hurt us.
Even nice people have a tendency to talk which is why I don't tell people what I have. By the time the neighborhood quit playing telephone I would have a Wal-Mart and six tons of gold in the attic. I would rather not have to deal with home invaders. Blood is hard to get out of drapes.
Having supplies for a few weeks is probably smart as I’ve said. But the whole prepper thing really isn’t about being prepared. It’s about wishing to see America suffer for its sins. The mindset is similar to the environmentalist left. They’ll say it’s about clean air and clean water but we know that deep down it’s really an angry critique of free interprise. Likewise, the prepper mindset is about more than just being prepared. It’s really an angry critique of wayward post-Constitutional, post-Christian America. In some ways I sympathize with it, but at the same time I know that the rage is not healthy. Prepperism is a case study in letting the perfect be the enemy of the good.
Trust me, I expect nothing from you or your ilk, Mrs. CodeToad.
