He said he used that stuff in his house and in his boiler room. Watching the video, they show multiple instances of direct flame hitting the insulation without degrading it and near the end they have a torch blowing at it with someone holding their hand to the other side (reminds me of aerogel). That got me thinking. . .
Since you can cut through this stuff just like fiberglass batts, I can't imagine it'd be hard to build your own instant rocket stove out of this stuff! The tricky part would be supporting a pot or pan to use on it, but that's not an insurmountable problem (hang a pot off a stand).
Might see if I can find it locally to experiment. It would be my first rocket stove.
keithturtle: Daryl, one door closing leads to another one opening. Walk thru wisely

ericvw: Looks like you've had some time to reflect, Daryl. We got about 14" snow this past weekend. It is melting away nice and quick.

Daryl: No more snow, Eric! Keep it! Supposed to be close to 50 the next couple of days.

ericvw: Daryl- do you have anything growing in the house, or any starts for a renewed outdoor deal?
Apr 3, 2016 17:37:04 GMT -8
Daryl: I have two indoor patio tomato plants that are about 1 1/2 ft high. I have a husky I saved from the freeze. Another plant to grow indoors and clone. I will be experimenting with other small pepper, tomato, and eggplant varieties this year.

Daryl: I am trying not to over do it. (Yeah, right) Small basil, oregano, and mint plants on my windowsill at the moment. After the new moon on the 7th I will try a couple seeds.

idahocharley: Just got my book "Rocket Mass Heaters". I'm at the stage of wondering where are the best spots for best use. Hello, and I am looking forward to contributing in the future after I am over my newbie stages!

Daryl: E, if it doesn't rain this weekend...I'm torching the burn pile of twigs from the winter drop off!! The GTG in PA is usually out east. The Ohio one would be closer.
