You can tell work is slack as I finally have time and patience to post some more pix.
Its Christmas eve, the darkness has decended, rather warm outside compared to temperatures of late, a respectable minus 2c and about 7 inches of snow. Its been the nicest day of the week with clear blue sunny skies.
Im chilling out with a glass of vino rosso, listening to Don Giovanni, wishing I was somewhere warmer, but sat here with an oil lamp for company instead.
So, here are some pix of the Squirrel stove. Ive made a steel base and corner piece with masterboard behind for peace of mind. The vent grill will allow ducted air from outside to meet the ventilation needs so I dont have to sit in a cold draught.
I had to drill out holes in the backplate for the back boiler pipes to pass through, and I also made 4 bolt on feet so the stove can be fixed to meet safety regs.
