Developments, wood stoves for garages, small workshops, there are many. The principle is similar, differences exist in the performance of some elements, which can save fuel, to increase the furnace to send heat to the desired point, etc.
Materials for the manufacture of stoves
- The propane tank;
- Sheet steel;
- Area 32 mm for rails of the grate, the ash drawer;
- The pieces of shaped tube for 20 x 40 feet;
- Scraps, scraps of metal for the support elements;
- High temperature oven thermometer.
- Self-locking handle for oven door – 2pcs;
- The hinges on the oven door – 4pcs;
- Sealing asbestos cord 15×15 mm;
- Hardware: bolts, screws, nuts.
- Welding or argon-arc;
- The Bulgarian (LBM);
- Marking and bench tools.
Instructions for making stoves for the garage with their hands
At the furnace will be interesting streamlined shape, rounded part of which we will borrow from the propane cylinder. To protect yourself, and eliminate the possibility of explosion, it is necessary to Unscrew the valve or plug on it and carefully rinse the cylinder with water.
Cut the front and back end cover of a cylinder grinder.
Next mark and cut the cover to the blower of the furnace. Height – 150mm, length – 200 mm. And then from the old blanks or other container to the dimensions shown in the photo arc for the chimney.
Then we layout the two end walls of the furnace (half of the container), and cut them out. Next cut the two side walls of the furnace sheet metal. Dimensions – 620х370 mm.
Collect the rough housing of the furnace, alvarina all the elements at the edges. To the far end wall of the weld opposite the semicircle of the chimney. He must not reach the bottom of the furnace, and end a little above the level of the grate.
Of sheet steel cut out the visor to the door of the firebox and weld it to the hull.
Turn the furnace housing to the top bottom, and spaced guides of the grate. The distance from the edge of the furnace is 100 mm. the guides Themselves will be made of the area by 32 mm.
Cut angles to length, and welded them in place. Semicircular eyes filled with sheet metal.
The bottom is cut from steel sheet, outlining the furnace circuit marker. Proverjaem it a continuous seam. Feet make from scraps, shaped tubes, privativa them across the bottom of the furnace.
For guides under the ash drawer can be the same as the 32nd area, or replace it with cut in half along pretrobas appropriate size. These elements are placed on the bottom of the furnace, and we catch welding.
Cut out the front wall of the blower door, mark out the gasket: asbestos cord, which will protect it from the heat. To do this, do the frame plates and weld it from the inside of the door.
The inspection doors on the podduvalom make from the same sheet of steel, placing it at an angle due to the different width of the electrode plates. Edge drill the hole for the thread and the screw-on screw-latch. Now you can make an asbestos cord, having compacted it with a hammer.
To secure the blower door will fit the most simple loop. In our case it was the door demountable hinges. We them to the furnace body, filling by welding the remaining screws holes.
Handle to blew it was decided to put self-locking. To make it myself, but it was easier to buy in the store. Under it we piece rod-back, and the handle put on the screw with a nut. After its checked and adjusted, the bar-back can be cut to length and grind a grinder.
Start making the upper wall of the furnace. The metal sheet is driven so that it completely covers the ellipse of the chimney from the firebox, and the thrust was only through the lower space.
The stove body is turned vertically elongated. The furnace can be done from the side, however, preferable to do it from the top. So it will be possible to load it to the maximum. In the upper wall of the cut out area under the door, and sawed from sheet metal strips to do her visor, and ovarium their contour cutting. After doing the door, also putting on the hinges, and blew, making asbestos cord and tooling its self-locking handle.
The shape of the chimney (ellipse) allows you to place in it not only the main nozzle and auxiliary element of the pipe for drying the electrodes. Put these elements and their ovarium welding.
The front of the furnace, it was decided to place a high temperature thermometer. For him to do rectangular clipping on body, and cover it with a plate under an inclined angle. After drilling a hole and mark in it the temperature sensor.
Wood burning stove continuous burning is ready, it can be cleaned, primed and painted with heat resistant paint.
Grate make from a metal rod or rebar (photo).
The ash box can be made from scraps of sheet steel, vymera the dimensions between the guide and the depth of the furnace.
From a small section of a pipe will make one more important detail – nut afterburner. It’s a perforated holes on the tube 7-9 mm, a width equal to the grate, sawn through along the bottom for cool air intake. Fasten it directly to the grate. The finished design of the grate with an ash box placed on their locations in the furnace.
Loaded the stove with wood to the top. The ignition in it is provided from below through the ash drawer. It put the paper chips or firewood (kindling chips). To speed up ignition will help a couple of drops of tanning, working out, dirty paint thinner or a small burner, a blowtorch.
According to our measurements it is seen that this furnace can be operated without refilling the firewood about 13-14 hours. It is excellent for heating small outbuildings – garage, workshop, etc.
