Hello, dear readers and homemade products !
Surely many of you love to relax in nature, and some do not mind implementing a picnic in the winter season, for example, on New Year's holidays. To light a full-fledged fire is far from always convenient, it is better to have a folding brazier or a compact wood-burning stove in your arsenal.
In this article, Ivan, the author of the YouTube channel “Creates DIY”, will tell you how you can make a camping wood-burning stove from a small gas cylinder and a fire extinguisher .
This the project is not very complicated, although it requires a certain amount of welding work.
Materials required for home-made.
– Old gas cylinder, fire extinguisher
– Bolt, lock nut, washers, spring, steel stud M6
– High temperature spray paint, machine oil, masking tape.
So, the first part of the stove, namely the firebox, will be an old propane cylinder with a capacity of 5 liters.
First of all, the master bleeds off the remaining gas and unscrews the valve from it, performing work on the street.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254859_chu-011.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Further work is very dangerous, so the cylinder is completely filled with water and washed out. Even after that, bringing the burner to the neck, ignition occurs.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254866_chu-021.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Next, the author cuts off the lower support ring with a grinder. It will also come in handy.
A bottom is cut along the former junction of the stand and the cylinder.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254939_chu-036.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> For removing the nameplate, the author drills the rivets, having previously marked them with a core.
To get rid of the layer of old paint on the cylinder, a small fire is made in it. The ignition is carried out with a gas burner. Also, compressed air from a compressor is supplied to the hearth to raise the temperature to the maximum, and the paint is burnt.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254898_chu-059.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Further parts are cleaned with a sandblasting gun in a special chamber. This method very effectively and efficiently removes all dirt from the metal surface. Of course, you can do with a grinder with a disk cord-brush.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254909_chu-074.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Sharp edges at the cuts are processed with a file.
Around the neck, the master drills a couple of dozen holes for air inlet. The metal of the cylinder is very thick, and in order not to spoil the drill for metal, you need to use machine oil. The holes are drilled first with a thin drill and then widened.
After drilling, remove the burrs with a file.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254911_chu-092.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> As a stand for the stove, and at the same time as an air channel, serve as part of a fire extinguisher cylinder.
This time the author burns the paint in a wood-burning stove, and sandblasts the part.
Received the pipe fits between the standard carrying handles.
As a result of tests, it was found that it is better to make this pipe longer, this will increase traction and improve the operation of the furnace.
Next, on the lower part of the pipe you need to mark and drill a hole for the blower.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254955_chu-114.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> This the author performs the operation using a metal crown. When drilling, not only constant lubrication is important, but also the operating mode of the screwdriver – only the first speed.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254888_chu-122.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254935_chu-128.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254942_chu-134.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> The blower tube fits very tightly into the prepared hole.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254892_chu-142.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> The round piece remaining from drilling is leveled on the anvil. By the way, the master made this anvil himself, which was described in a recent article.
For of greater beauty, a bolt is fixed in the workpiece through the central hole left when cutting it. The surface of the disc is aligned on a lathe.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254919_chu-162.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Pipe the blower is clamped in a vice, and two symmetrical holes are made in it with a stepped drill along the centerline.
An axis made of an M6 stud with a wing nut is threaded through these holes. The axis is attached to the valve through a hole, the so-called electrical rivet.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254955_chu-176.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254938_chu-179.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Two additional tacks are made side by side.
The valve is perfectly balanced, and quite easily rotated by the flow of compressed air from the compressor.
To it was possible to fix the position of the valve, the author puts a compression spring on the end of the axle, and winds the lock nut.
A suitable spring can be made by yourself, having read the following article.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254893_chu-194.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Now the rack pipe is welded to the firebox. Moreover, the weld seam remains inside the structure.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254880_chu-206.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Several large holes are drilled along the perimeter of the ring for the outlet of combustion products.
This ring will serve as a stand for a pot or frying pan, and it is welded to the top of the firebox. < br> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254899_chu-226.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254924_chu-230.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> A hole is also drilled in the center of the remaining bottom with a crown.
This detail will serve as the basis for the entire construction. The hole in it is intended for ash removal.
For the convenience of making a continuous seam, the master uses a homemade welding table with a turntable. How to make such a table was described here.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254892_chu-242.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Ready the blower with the valve is welded into place, and the welds are cleaned.
Before applying paint, you need to degrease the surfaces, and seal the blower hole with masking tape. Ivan uses spray paint that can withstand temperatures up to 800 degrees.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254918_chu-267.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254941_chu-272.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> For the convenience of carrying the stove, a wire handle from a bucket will do, or you can bend it out of galvanized wire yourself. The folded ends of the handle are inserted into the holes in the upper ring.
Finally , the stove is complete, it's time to load it into the trunk.
You can cook something hot outdoors or near your home. While the furnace is firing up, the blower is left completely open.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254973_chu-289.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> < a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2020-12/1607254968_chu-302.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Then the blower is covered, and you can cook. By the way, you can store such a stove in your garage or workshop, and there is always something to cook your food on.
Hot coals remain in the furnace for a long time, and you can warm up near the stove.
