I'm looking for ideas on building a shop heater. The type made fron 2 55gal barrels stacked. Where the top barrel has pipes.with a blower to distribute the. Heat. I've look online but haven't found detailed instructions on the build and setup. If anyone has one would you explain.
1. Could I drip the oil. Or does it have to be sprayed
2. What size blower for the oil & what size blower for the top barrel.
I understand the fundamentals. Just would like some guidance from someone with experience on this build.

I've been using a waste oil stove to heat my shop for over 25 years, I've got a good reliable design that I can share with you. My problem is I type very slowly, send me your phone number & I'll describe it to you, then you can type it up, with pictures of the build for the other members.Professional Auto Mechanic since 1974
