I didn't know anything about the technology involved in an EPA rated wood stove, but they have air tubes that draw in air from below and pre-heat the air as it enters the firebox and the pre-heated air ignites the remaining combustibles in the smoke.
I'm sure a lot of you guys in colder climates already knew that.
It sure beats a barrel stove for efficiency.

For President's day weekend we took another trip to Glamis.
Lots of beer and pissing but no pictures of it this time.

This picture shows how this sandrail is too wide for the roof rack so I made a small extension for the front tire to sit into. It drops down onto the lower control arm and slides all the way to the top then goes onto the tire perch

Didn't make much time for the oval in February but managed to work on one micro stub axle a little more. In the very first post of this thread I had began to machine away the 930 sized CV flange.

This photo is a Type One Trans flange getting machined down to prepare it for welding to the micro stub.
I bolted it to a CV joint to make it easier to hold in the chuck

Cool! So, you have to go with a 90mm CV because of clearance issues?

These pictures are a few months old. Since I sold my 58LOAF bus and tomorrow is OCTO, I'm working on the 57 single cab. Nothing like the last minute to do something. I have been waiting for 6 months to register a set of YOM plates that I bought off ebay. The registration just arrived. I called my insurance and got it done. OCTO in the 36HP Crashbox Single Cab.
Charged the battery last night and drove it home. This morning it wouldn't start. Whipped out the hand crank and fired it up Smile
Don't want to do that tomorrow so new battery going in tonight.
