Just got back from my neighbors machine shop. I have never seen a stove like his Hutch Rebel. That thing can throw heat like nothing I've seen before. Its 33 degrees here today with some wind, basically just a raw damp day. His shop is 26x60.
Half way across it was 80 degrees. 3 foot from the stove it was searing heat. Even the old Nashua wouldn't have been close to what this thing was doing. Its basically nothing but a big (36x36x24) box made of 1/4 boiler plate with no baffle. 2 cast doors on the front.
There is an uninsulated 9' garage door in the room too and single pane windows. Half the time when I'm over there the service door is open and he is in there working with a tee shirt on. Don't know anything about wood consumption and I'm sure he could care less, there just ain't know other (especially EPA) stove that could do what that baby is doing. He used to heat it with a gas overhead furnace. It was always chilly and the machines were cold to touch.
Now they are warm, so warm I think the machines help hold the heat in the place. Sometimes it just takes brute force to get a job done. Actually I was thinking to myself about how this thing was used in a house. He bought it off an individual at their residence so someone at one time probably did have it in their living room or kitchen, but man, what a beast that would have been in a house. But I guess its like everything else in life that has been downsized and still gets the job done. I used to drive a 69 Impala to work, now I drive a Cobalt. I still get there just use a 10th the fuel to do it.
I look at the chainsaw my Dad used to cut with in the 50's and 60's or even a 20hp tractor compared to one today. Everything in life is smaller, most is better, but somethings just got to be big to do the job me thinks. 1973 was the year that it was mandated that cars had to burn unleaded gas. That was going to be the end of the automobile. Now they sip gas and run a hole in the wind.
In 1988 it was going to be the end of the wood stove for heating. And I wish to heck that this 2006 stove of mine had been around when I bought that 650 pound tank in 1985.
Sometimes some of you guys remind me of my grandfather. He walked off the farm the day he couldn't make a living farming with mules anymore and wouldn't buy a tractor.:lol: Ended up slinging hash in a diner.
Click to expand.I think you have totally missed my point. Basically efficiency comes at a cost too. Less performance. And in most situations its a good trade off.
My 69 might have guzzled gas but it could haul more load, pull a trailer and go fast when needed. I'm willing to forgo those things for the cost of gas. New stoves are cute very efficient and clean burning, but don't put out quit the heat.
Sometimes we get lucky and you can add faster to that. Atlante di anatomia netter pdf download free apps. Then there is economics which almost always trump everything.
