    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    They made clocks in Chelsea.
    When I was a boy, Chelsea was notable for the odor at low tide. OMG!

    edit; Note the 55 gal barrel in the mud has iron hoops for rolling it. Those barrels if you can find one make really good shop stoves. You can drill and bolt legs and a steel table top directly to the hoops.

    To further drift from the thread topic, Canoeyawl, I had a shop stove made from two of those 45-gal drums. This resulted in keeping the hot gasses inside the stove longer, so that more heat was radiated into the shop. It was awesome! I laid refractory bricks in the bottom of the lower barrel to keep it from burning through. It lasted about ten years before being so burnt, rusted, and buckled that even I was afraid to use it. I might add that this type of stove is definitely NOT approved by anybody anywhere, and will result in any insurance on your shop being made null and void in the occasion of a fire from any source, stove-related or not. Tractor Supply Co. now sells these kits.

    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I put mine together with barrels that had a clamp-on lid. Easy to clean out.

    On another one using that type of barrel I cut the barrel 1/3 shorter and put the lid on and used it as a fireplace insert. Worked great.

    That is perfection, at least in appearance! It has everything I was fixated on as a child.

    I don’t think it is Bluenose. Wrong stern.

    Years ago I lived in a $50/month deer camp. Insulation was flattened cardboard boxes. Any idea how well that does at -30F?

    Anyway I had a double barrel stove like this that I built with the Vogelzang kit. That sucker would throw serious heat. It wouldn;t heat the whole camp @ -30, but it would keep the water from freezing.

    I strongly recommend burning off the paint outdoors DAMHIKT (hey it was cold out!)

    Definitely not the Bluenose. Without going into a whole lot of detail, suffice it to say that the Bluenose was never, ever, painted any other colour than black.
