  • Anyone know where I can get Corn Burner Plans?

    I have been thinking about getting a corn burner for my barn and was wondering if I could build one myself instead of buying a comercial model. I was thinking of a unit that would heat the main barn by convection and also have a heat exchanger in it to run into my shop where I could use a radiator and blower to warm it (smaller area).

    I would be willing to experiment with designing my own but would at least like to have a basic setup of burner/hopper/auger/etc to start with.

    Thoughts?

    I put a corn furnace (100,000 BTU) in my house 9 years ago, and it has done a wonderful job. There's no reason a person couldn't build one. But there are several unique features, such as the fire pot design, size and speed of the augers, the combustion air blower, and the timer that takes over the combustion blower and augers when the thermostat is satisfied, that really can't be improved. If I can be of any help, let me know. Jerry

        Keep this in mind when you want to build your own stove, unless the stove has a UL listed rating your insurance company would not have to honor your claim.
