You got it really looking good
Question for the group, I have decided to use 4 3" schedule 40 pipe 1" long at the bottom with a bolt so the intake air flow can be adjusted. I will put 2 on each side, not on the door side. On the door side I was going to put 1 2" schedule 40 pipe 1" long towards the top of the door, it's above and beyond what is needed based on the calculations, but I did read some posts about allowing cooler air in toward the top of the firebox. If necessary I can sketch something up so it may be a bit more clear. My question is, should I put the additional vent higher up on the door?
My plan will be to add a single 2" schedule 40 pipe 2" long at approximately the same height as the intake from the FB into the CC. I will post some pictures when complete.
In the mean time, I mounted the door to the FB.
Today I cut in the vents into the FB, I am considering welding the FB to the CC. But wanted to get some input. I know once they are welded together moving it will be made much more difficult. Not to mention the fact of welding the vents onto the FB may be more challenging due to the fact I will not be able to tip it on it's side.
Let me know, what you think. I have a bit mote venting than required based on the Calculations, but I will be able to close each down as needed
Each of the side vents are sized for a 3" schedule 40 pipe
The vent on the door is a 2" schedule 40
I also put an opening on the bottom, but that will be for cleaning out the ash after a burn...
I don't, when I started planning out this project, I went to all kinds of sites (Google images) looking for ideas, so I saved the image, but didn't didn't save the site from which they came. I am going to post some pictures of mine...I was a lot of work...trying to figure out how to keep everything centered so it will complete open and close. Spent the better part of today working on the 5 vents.
"Here are a few pics of the intake vents and the 4" stack...It was slow going haven't put together vents like this before"
I can see that these would be a challenge. They look much different than the ones you posted earlier. Which did you wind up going with? Thanks.
