so, I installed the Hofstove in my shop, to give it it's final testing, IE: indoors, correct pipe size, no wind.
It was about 70 in the shop, no more, for sure.
I ran the flue 8" dia. pipe out through the wall in triple wall pipe, then up about 10'.
I could tell almost immediately upon lighting the fire, it was different.
I had suspected the combination of 6" pipe (not enough flow) and being outside at 40 ish degrees, with wind was part of my inability to get the ovens hot, very fast.
Inside, with warmer ambient temp (more like what the temp inside the Hof would be), and no wind, the ovens climbed fast, the baking oven going well past 350, aproaching 400 deg. I let it sit there, to see what would happan. After an hour, the temp remained, so I started changing flow patterns, and the oven responded!
Yay, and yay again!!!!!
Now just a few final touches and it's done (well, until I come up with something else to do to it.)
glad to hear every one had a nice day, and sorry about your missing sleep, Elorrum.
how about a sunday night tune?
