Winteris coming up and there's no heating in my workshop. Unfortunately my workshop is tin so isn't not easy to warmitup, so i decided to build a blow furnace.
My project has proven to be very efecient, and ever too strong for my workshop.

A shop, no matter how well equipped, is unpleasant and therefore less used during winter. Few parts of the world are comfortable year round.
Great video. In reality, a complete parts sketch to make such a furnace. I'm positive your comment about it's heating power is not just the blower, but the decent mass of steel creating radiant heat.
That comment brought me to watch entire presentation; rare for me.
I think forced air heat alone is wasteful, it fights a losing battle against the other masses, like ccc-cc-c-cold machine hhh-handles.
Radiant heat enlists materials; those become allies in war against weather.
I have one question. Is there a heat trap before the exhaust vents outside?
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
