Flue pipe for making a rocket stove

by ziggy on March 12, 2009 -- 1 comment -- Follow

I recently bought some flue pipe for the construction of my rocket stove and heated cob bed. I purchased it from a local hardware store, and I was very happy to learn that there is 60″ lengths of flue pipe for sale for roughly $11 each. Compared to the more common 24″ lengths, which are something like $6 a piece, the 60″ pipe is a bargain.

Since I will need over twenty feet of pipe in my cob bed, the longer pieces make much more sense to use. If you are planning to build a heated bench or bed, make sure to find some 60″ length flue pipe.

In the next week, I hope to get some firebricks from our neighbors at Sandhill Farm so that I can begin to build the actual stove.

    Great. I can’t wait for work to begin again. I’ve been watching this project for a while. I’ve gotta say that it’s the most organized and comprehensive documentation of such an undertaking I’ve seen on the web.
