Attaching video to see if it works

If you build it better than the one profiting from it, don’t tell them, they'll get pissed! "I challenge anyone to challenge me" ... Murf! "I am responsible for the comment in this comment section"

That is so instructional for newly introduced people to the concepts of RMH.

You can tell people all day that the fire burns sideways, but when they SEE it they get it, no more talking (or typing).

night burn,
just started it! You need "high Heat Resistant" glass. Temper will not do! I had my glass cut to size of fire brick! 9" x 4.5" x 3/16" did not last long, I temper it my self.. well kindof.. It was just so I could see if it worked! I am ordering High Heat ceramic glass. there is a 90$ min. charge!

Ahh i see; Dan where are you getting the glass? If its good rates i would like to get some myself. that vid is great by the way, will you do a full cycle (big wood ) for us? if you have enough glass that is

Need more info?

I recycled a real good piece of glass today out of an old stove. Should work a lot better than my homemade tempered glass!
The glass cut to size is 2 ft minimum 90$ so I could get 5 pieces cut, after replies from other forum post I think they should be smaller slightly smaller than the bricks so they can be framed to have room for expansion.
I am going to reset-up this weekend on leveler ground LOL, I will do some big wood test too, now that some of my slab wood has dried up.

How about a small window made of glass block just below the barrel built into the "manifold" section of RMH ?

I doubt there will be anything to see at that point.

How about a window on the side on top of the barrel to see the secondary combustion.

the window is a great idea- i'm planning on building a rocket stove soon and might try this if i can find an old stove to recycle the high heat glass from. i think it could most likely be cut with a tile saw, that could save some money. i think i paid 90 dollars for mine a few years ago and i cut all kinds of stuff with it. borosilicate glass, wine bottles, stained glass, etc. i'll post here if i manage to cut some high heat glass successfully.

I did not have good luck with the stove glass! Hold off on that until I get more testing? The piece I tested this weekend lasted 5 min. Then shattered? Might have been just tempered glass instead of high heat glass? I have a different piece to try a gain with in a couple of days!

Most stoves using glass have either an air wash over the glass which will help keep it cool, or the glass is recessed to be away from direct flame.
