Not a problem to enlarge when you go vertical.
Your 8" is going to be a big beast !
Yes 8" is huge for the space, but they say that bigger rockets are less finicky, plus I want to burn pallet slats.
One slat is 40", cut in half 20" , needing at least 24" in the firebox.
Crappy wood, but easy to aquire, process and stack, dry and in bulk.
I will be buying a cordless circular saw just to make harvest easier.
I'm also casting the firebox, and an easily reproducible 8" batch box seems ideal for more applications, like a bank of bread ovens, heating my enclosed front porch, powering foundry, still or forge...
I figure I can always throttle back.
What do you think about the need for a bypass, given the undersized bell?
Just curious, would a 15" diameter vertical chimney be too
I have lots of water heater tanks...
