Blow Through Barn Stove"It heats better than any wood stove I've ever seen. Easily heats my 26 by 26 ft. barn with a 19-ft. ceiling," says Frank Battiato, Salem, N. J. about his made-it-myself stove.
"I built the body of the stove with an old 56 1/2-in. dia., 8-ft. long steam tank that's got 1/2-in. thick sidewalls. I cut the tank down to 5 1/2 ft. It stands on 101/2-in. long legs.
"The best feature of this stove are the nine pipes that run all the way through the tank, near the top of the stove. Hot air from the firebox rises through the pipes on its way out the chimney. A 110-volt fan, which attaches to the back of the stove, blows air through the pipes and into the shop.
"I'm currently working on a design to burn waste oil in the stove."
