cool photo Elliot!
and yeah FJ, maybe so. I guess it could be done. I was thinking a person could make a small chamber, especially in a large stove such as I made, and run gas lights and maybe other gas fired things from it. Be sort of cool.......HHHHHMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm..........

:coffee: using a new coffee maker that I got for Christmas. It's a little glass filter holder that you pour hot water over. My first apartment coffee maker was a replacement glass coffee pot I got at goodwill, and a four cup funnel. Everything old is new again. It's nice. I think I'll scale one up for the bar. Sure was hard to hang that water pot from the ceiling.

glad to see you found a use for the old cuffs and chains hanging from the ceiling, Elorrum. Much better than only being used on those "certain nights" for "certain parties", we all hear about, but only find the aftermath of.

It just reminded me so much of an industial furnace that to get creative and make it as multi-functional as possible would be a hoot.

Sort of like useing water 3 ways before it goes to the black water tank.

well AntiM, the stove does seem to put out a lot of heat.......I'd like to think my "fin" idea, and re-burn recirculating internal air system are why........but it might just be, it works good by accident. anyway, I'll lay a futon right next to it for your curling pleasure.

I did try the "cold water on hot metal" straightening method, and it seems to have had some effect!
got the top up to about 500 deg. and poured cold water on the area that was about 3/32 raised (center of 36x42 inch, 3/8 thick plate). I kept pouring slowly until the temp just in that are was down to about 170 deg. the areas around stayed well above 400, as you got away from the cooled area. (all according to my cheap point and shoot infrared thermometer). I did that twice. After, it seemed I cut the bulge by about half. so, it seems it worked, yay that!!

Shrinkage!

Just as my sleep schedule seems to be circling back around to what passes for normal, I was awaken by a flying cat in the pre-dawn hours. Every now and again our youngest cat (she's four, but still a kitten in my mind) likes to jump from the top of the bookshelf straight down onto the lounger bed. She's never landed with claws in my head, but she gets awfully damned close. Anyhow, I woke with a start (and rush of adrenaline) and couldn't get back to sleep. So I dove right into some video projects. While working on some other renders and transcoding projects, I also scrubbed through 40-50 hours (so far) of documentary footage to clip out some excerpts that will tie into camp projects, then youtube'd them so I can share with campmates and include them in an upcoming site redesign. I also spent a fair bit of time investigating the ePlaya hiccup (notification emails aren't working properly), but I'm waiting to hear back from some folks at HQ at this point. While I was playing techno dork, the girl made a fabric joint run and made a skirt piece for the outfit she'll be wearing at the upcoming Edwardian Ball.

Is it ever too late for cartoons?

Here it is Monday again...needs coffee. Relieved to hear there was a notification glitch, Thought I'd been cut off .... Can't handle rejection well. Good to see all you denizens of the Bar in fine fettle. Hope your cold is better Anti M. Actually, I hope you are better, I really don't give a hoot how the cold is doing ... (but I guess you knew that!)

Hi ho, hi ho and all that BS about off to work I go!

Have a great day, Kiddies. Can't wait for the heat of the dust!

I was over at Ygmir's during the weekend and saw his stove in action. It's a monster. I didn't have the heart to tell either him or Looneytunes this, but it reminded me of the crematoria at Auschwitz.

*swoops in*

~~~happy dance~~~

My new boss thinks we can squish my schedule around to get 2 weeks off for TTITD 8) even though the new summer vacation rule is "one week at a time" :shock: so yeah YAY HOORAY !!!

Still no solid plans, not like Mel who has already bought her airplane ticket, geez, but YES. 8)

Maybe someday I will get to see that stove, that Hof, that beautiful view from Ygmir's mountain hideaway, but today I am really happy to see BRC in my future.
