Bab Lab Continued

Building on the work in the last post – if one simply puts a shroud around the Babington burner flame to retain the heat – the flame becomes self sustaining. Preheated to 140 F, the oil lights immediately and continues to burn:

It’s getting cold here – 40 F last night. We’re scrambling to press bricks, and hopefully we will have warm space soon with the Babington/wood CEB masonry stove.

    yeah!! it seems the flame is a bit high, but it should make superb warmth! once you coil those tubes around it you can run liquid through the hydronic! where was the permanent stove going to be placed?
