Rocket Stove Sunburst v4 Outdoor

31 Like

This is the revised version with changes made to the design for improved fit on the pot holder top and a longer handle bracket that will get your hand further away from the stove stack. Originally shared under the heading Spring 2023 Fire Pit Contest - Sunburst Rocket Stove. Features: 1. Easy to assemble, once you get the main body bent along relief cuts. 2. Burns very well. 3. Ash tray allows for varying the air intake as well as clean-out for the stove. Further considerations: A. I made my ash grate out of 1/4 inch steel. You could use the ash grate made of 12 gauge, included in this design but depending on use it may not last long. B. Some may feel lateral stabilization could be beneficial. The simplest idea might be to weld a piece of 1/2" pipe on the base and use a piece of rebar that would slide in, extending out both directions, horizontally on the along the ground. C. When assembling the wood chute, you will need to bend it length-wise to fit (as shown in final photo. I tried to keep all welds away from where the wood would slide to avoid hang ups.

    What's a good program to that free for beginners to use to look at the DXF file? I'm trying to figure out the dimensions of the steel plate you used. Thanks
