I don’t understand what that down pipe unless it is causing more draw. I wish someone could explain?

Well I love the idea of a web form like this. You can go to YouTube & watch all the videos which is great. But forms
Are better as you can discuss idea’s one on one & learn from one another. Problem I see here is you can,t just pull
It up by Google. At least I could not. People can,t find it.   

     Just my thoughts!   Fly

Thank you Russ looks like some great folks here. I truly wish this site was easy to find on the net, for it would
get many more hits than it does. Youtube has a huge following, on this subject. But hopefully  more people will
find it. There are many on you tube that build three or four different heaters before finding just what works for
them. I just don,t want to go threw all that if I can avoid that.

Thank you my freind!      Fly

User Projects & Pictures / Fly dia for drip oil heater?
« on: February 27, 2023, 03:45:11 pm »
I have a 1800 ft shop in eastern Okla. I  have heated it with a wood stove. I plan on making a drip feed wast
Oil burner. My thought is to use a side draft flue to help retain some of the heat in the chamber a little longer
Than routing it out top of tank. My tank will most likely be a 40 gal hot water tank. I would like to keep it just
drip feed with no forced air. What Dia flue pipe would you recommend? 6” or 4 “. Which would create the best
draw? I know 6” will flow more air volume. But some times more volume will be slower velocity where less dia
such as a 4” could be less air but a higher velocity = more draw. Kinda like a soda straw. Large straw vs smaller
straw. I may be over thinking this, but many of you have been there done this. I hate to buy the flue, & have to
turn around and buy a different dia flue. 

           Please offer your thoughts, thank you!   Fly
