Err... I really don't know how to go about that.. Looking in the Admin area, I don't see any options for it. Looking in your profile, I don't see an option for it. I searched proboards script library, no dice there either.
Sorry, I'm stumped.. If anyone knows how to do this, I'm game, let me know!

I'm not sure if I'm communicating with the right person (?initials KM) what with all the code name thing, but I promised I'd get KM the reference to the article in the New Yorker on Rocket Stoves. It was Dec 21 and 28, 2009, page 84. Thanks for the great workshop in RW Valley last weekend. Sharon Sharealike
Woodworm, I'm not sure what you're asking. I'll try an answer anyway..
The quote function places the quote and unquote BBcode tags around selected text (usually someone's entire post). You can do this by hand by typing the tags yourself.. The quote tags look like this [quote]whatever the quote is[/quote] The important bit to remember is the / is ALWAYS at the end.. The [quote] opens the statement, everything after that is included in the rendered quotes box until it gets to the [/quote] closing statement.. If you do a lot in bulletin boards, it will be well worth your time to learn at least some BBCode.. www.bbcode.org/reference.php
Will somebody please explain (key for key) how to use the Quote function.
Here's how I do it: 1. Go to the message you want to quote from 2. Click the "Quote" button at upper right of that message 3. Delete the text you do not want to include in your response 4. Add your response after the "[/quote]" 5. Click the "Post Reply" button below
I have a request as a total newbie. I am about to build a rocket stove, and searched this sight for tips. I think I want to incorporate a "bell" idea, I think I understand containing heat by lowering the exhaust out let level, and I want to use a hollow cob bench instead of piping it, but I'm pretty sure that I don't understand any of it completely. What the heck is a "bell" design? can you post links that explain these concepts to an acupuncturist like me who is not a pyro expert? Are there plans we could look at to understand the concepts? I have the rocket mass heater book, and I am so glad to find out before building it that I have to have a bigger opening out of the barrel, but after that I was lost, though still interested.. Thanks!
Try this thread, it's the first article of a bell construction idea on the boards. There are some drawings and pictures in this thread and time and again the principles are explained. It's quite a lengthy thread, most information is given up to page 6.
Another thread is that of the Rocket/Bell project, incorporating even more drawings and pictures.

I'd like to make this board more useful. Your suggestions can help. I'm open, so let me have it. I'll do my best to incorporate your ideas. Just keep it simple and I will do what I can.
I would love to watch a - Making a Rocket Stove Video - where someone with a Foot,and Inch ruler (asa) give the dimensions of the openings,widths,heights,ect of a successful rocket stove. I believe in the "Kiss" principle. For example! I watched a COB making video where the teacher said,"Make sure that is Two,to One" but he did not say what the Two was,or,the One..kind of helpless to a viewer. Also! I have a great Idea,I think! that would increase the air Flow Speed into the pipe,or,what ever with a simple proven device based on the Theory of Flight. Let me know if you have an interest. Jerry

wiscojames: I'm afraid you won't get a response to such a vague question - I suggest reading through some of the threads related to your questions before asking for an explanation. People will be very generous with their knowledge if your question is more specific.

daniel: in my experience as I am working now on something of that nature, I have thought of making a heat exchanger and distributing the heat through vents using a slower fan. Now after a few years I realize that mass heaters give out primarily radiant heat, for

vesuvius: Do any of you have experience with using the glass from home oven doors on a rocket stove? I'd like to have a viewing port on my stove but don't want to fork out for new ceramic glass. Any thought as to whether it would take the heat of a rocket stove?
