Start of a new Burner Design

Uncleaned burnerA friend with Solidworks has offered to draw up a new burner, so I thought I would post a few pictures of the old burner to help with dimensions.  Here’s a picture of the uncleaned burner with about two inches of ash build up in the bottom of the burner.

The tape measure in this view gives a little help with size.  Originally the back flap was designed to help with air flow a sort of chimney effect, however this was of limited help and probably helped trap ash as do the high sides.

The larger holes are 1/2″ and the ash still doesn’t fall through unless stirred.

    are you making good progress ? I believe I am not too far from you. I live in Ludlow VT and I will be interested in looking at your boiler if you dont mind.
