Nice burner and nice stainless potstand.

Folks, I tested one like this for Daren. I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked and how well made it was. He is a true craftsman.

Nice stove DarenN. I llike the second picture. It looks like light Sabers crossing; "Let the force be with you Luke" :D I appreciate the pics as videos are almost impossible for me to load with dial up. :twisted: If I ever get access to high speed, look out, I might be making a hundred post per day. :lol: :lol:

Daren, That is an awesome stove. Where do you get ceramic insulation, and what is its application? Is it fibrous, and does it pack in there like fiberglass insulation would? If so do you pack it in there really tight or not? Can you take a pic with the lid off? I love it, man. :D

thanks Frank! :D
the ceramic insulation i'm useing is "Unifrax Dura-Blanket". it's an extreme high temp tolerant spun fiber blanket that is much denser than your regular pink or yellow house insulation. we use it at work to line the air space in built-in double walled fireplaces. it is also used in kilns, and i used it to build a double walled propane fired forge.
when i use it in a burner i don't pack it overly tight. it's a balancing act. you want it to hold the fuel, but not too tightly.

That's awesome. It seems they will only sell in bulk over $250, or charge a $25 service fee for anything under. :(

ask them who they have sold to in your area, and then go begging for scraps. :D

Look in the yellow pages under chimney repair. Ask them if they have a similar product. Ask for cut-offs, drop-offs.
