What is the foot print of the Portable RMS?
And how small can you build an RMS and still expect it to work?
I have an 10' X 12' Green house and want to put one of these in. I am thinking I could fit in a 2'W X 8'L X 2'H.
Would that be too small for a 6" system?
Thanks for this site its great I have learned a ton of stuff!

barrels like you can get from the quick lube places for my riser and build a standard burn tunnel
under that. I was also thinking I could get some Refractory cement and make the bottom part for the
burn tunnel over some 6 inch corrugated tube to get the shape then fill in the ridges after the tube
was removed from the molded piece to make the chamber smooth for better flow.
Hope that makes sense?

Here's the skp file.
