It's Monday and I started workin on the exhaust and air inlet vent. I completed the inlet by installing a 2 inch x 11 inch square HVAC adjust floor & wall register.
Then cut a 6 inch round hole in the roof for flue.
Then I just could wait any longer to see how this rocket would fly so I lit the burner! [smilie=a_yumdumdoodledum.gif]
Now I know later on the flue height will make things act differ from today, but it was a pretty smooth test run.
Had to damper down the flue hole, but once she warmed up, she ran 165 to 175 degrees nice and slow on a low setting
Still got plenty to do before she really ready, but things are lookin good.

Any advice?

High temp rope gasket is available at just about any hardware store. Good to see the box up and running.

Good Q!

Thanks witt & jack, hopin to find a thin gasket, not to thick like a rope type.
I'll be checkin around.
Man my box pit can hold a nice steady 200 degrees easyyyyy! [smilie=a_goodjobson.gif] I'm very pleased with her, although my wife took a couple of shots at her from the house with a 22 cal.
Hey do they make bullet proof vest to fit my baby?
