    Heat exchanger

    Beautiful job, Finney! It DOES kinda look like the nose of the canon on an A10 at that ! I happened to have been in the service when that gun was first introduced. Saw a demo. They had it set up in a kitchen tent (canvas top no sides). There was a huge rack of ammo and a big fan. They told us to cover our ears and fired that monster. Great roar! when the fan finally blew away all the smoke the target was GONE and the rack of ammo empty! I later heard that on the first plane they mounted it to, the stream of ejected shells hit the fuselage and nearly caused a crash.

    You might want to consider going to the local hardware and picking up a Carbon Monoxide detector. Just in case the heat inside cracks a weld and you wind up blowing monoxide gas into the shop. Cheap insurance.
    Again, great job! DrBob

      Or put a little restriction on the output side. That way the fan keeps the heat exchanger slightly pressurized and any leaks will blow air into the chimney vs sucking bad stuff out of the chimney.

        Andy,

          I have a wood stove in my shop here in Michigan so I do alot of burning, I to have a chimney restriction which is a Magic Heat, I burn my stove pretty hard so there is never a need to clean the magic heat, when ever I have pulled the cleaner back and forth it never indicates any build up.

          My smoke stack goes out the back, then up, then on a diagnal out the back wall of the shop to a 6x6x 3/16" wall square tube that I have mounted on a foundation.

          I dont have to worry about a chimney fire or at least thats what I have thought.

          I understand that the draw back of my heavy wall tube smoke stack verses a thin wall stack is that thinner wall pipe heats up faster IE giving a better draft.

          I do notice every once in a while I come back to the shop in the morning and get a heavy dose of the creasote smell.

          This happens about 3 times a year and I'm not sure why this happens.

          Is it that that I get alot of condensation in the stack every once in a while and it runs down into the stove when its choked back.

          Like I said I'm not a 100% sure.
