    When we eventually see it in action I'm gonna post you a cheque for £6, seeing you squirm over the cost of the glass has been worth every penny :D

    I think you've done pretty well for only being £52 in! Tell ya what, I'll match @dieseldog69 and send you £6 for your effort - only mind when I see the finished article installed and being used!
    There you go your back down to £40 spent - stop moaning and get on with it!

    Sod off you lot. Your really taking the pizz now.
    It’s throwing it down this morning. I’m all set to get the fork lift out and heave it outside for a blast. I just hope the chains hold out.

    Let’s see if it stops by lunchtime.

    The sun came out mid morning so it wuz time for a fire up.

    I only had a bit of 3x2 scant so that had to do. It obviously wouldnt get as hot as hardwood and would no doubt be smokier but not a bad idea for the first warm through.

    No way I could knock one out anywhere near the price of a chineese cast one. The only reason I did it was because most of the materials came from scrap bits I had lying around. I did have to buy a few feet of steel bar and the paint cost a bob or two. A bit of rope and gasket was cheap enough.

    Oh and £12 worth of glass. :mad:

    I think this will be too hot for mi trailer. The back of a 110 is even smaller although less insulated. You could deffo go less complicated just for heat. The issue is fuel. Too small and your wood will have to be tiny.

    Keep your eye out for a scuba tank. It'll be a start. ;)

    The only issue is wall thickness. They don’t last long. I spoze if you made it so a change over is easy it wouldn’t matter much.
