For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

    Electricity generated from a WFO, Sure, this crowd seem to be working on something, How do you think it works? Steam power is all I can think of?

    Either steam ( since they mention hot water) or some kind of bi-metalic strip. But I can't see it producing too much energy. The steam idea might work but the safety factors ( PRVs etc) would end up making the system costly and expensive. I think it's a pipe dream

      Don't discount the pipe. It can be instrumental in the production of some very innovative ideas.

        Not at all. A sterling engine would be the ticket. I don't understand why they are not mandatory in every chimney. Hot and cold equals power. Hell - hot and less hot equals power.

          I did think sterling engine but it also seems out of the question, maybe a combo of everything possible, surely the pressure rising from the chimney alone would turn a prop, pressure from the hot water a piston and generated heat a sterling engine.

            "pressure from the hot water"

            Pressure ?

            Unless you are a boiler engineer, I would hesitate to try a home made pressure system.
