It was straight from my own thicknesser air dried to 12%, so it was dry.
No matter how you look at it, it wont work, if it worked there wouldnt be a mountain of rice husks free for the taking.

I can just see in my mind eye those pile of shavings smoldering away like brickie said. Poke them introduce that air and you have some combustion. The google I did said this morning was to do with the shape of the husk that it needed air to be introduced to burn.
A WFO breaths. All to do with the 63 per cent entrance hieght to dome height. Light a fire in a cold oven and the smoke hovers in a layer about a third of the way up the bottom third is clear. Reaches a point where the heat builds up and gets reflected back ..... Suddenly the smoke clears and the fires away burning efficiently. It's all a balance between air being drawn in at the bottom exiting at the 63per cent of oven hieght entrance . Add an internal chimney without some form of control or introducing an air flow would upset the balance of how these ovens "breath" and regulate themselves. Same with a forced air flow to induce you husk to burn.
Just some thoughts and suppositions for the moment ....all ideas are good ones if they lead to some more and finally a solution maybe

Regards dave

"63 percent entrance height to dome height."

That's good to know. Have a question. I'm 6' tall, any idea how high the floor should be? I was considering 4' 6" though I could easily lower that to 4'. Any other handy specs would be very helpful.

Regarding the husks, even if I was 99% sure it wouldn't work I still have to try. The high cost of wood, the fact that husks are free, and the ideas presented here by you guys, wrapping in paper or packing in bamboo, the benefit of free fuel however unlikely must be tried. For one thing, the attempt costs so little particularly since you guys have talked me out of attempting the shute.

Think it's about time you downloaded the forno free plans.
Go to the forno online store load a set of free plans in the trolley and they will be e-mailed to you. Everything's in there except rice husk fuel

Here is how I eventually got the timber shavings to burn, and burn they did, they burn so fierce its scary to watch and hear.

Get some 50mm dia pipe (dont use gal) or similar, block one end off and drill heaps of holes in the pipe just anywhere.
Cover with husks and light the front lot of husks, dont cover the front of the pipe.

Try it with the rice husks Im sure it will work.

You can send the royalties to Brickie in Oz care of Australia.

Should I send you a big check? I'm referring to the dimension of the paper, not the size of the $0

Heck of an idea. I'm tempted to make a row of the things, have them welded and build the wood fire on em. Later when I add the husks on top the things will already be there and hot as...well hot. Great way to get air ti just the right place. You know you're a genius brickie? Well whatever, that idea is brilliant.

I wouldn't quit your day job to become an artist however.

I'd say you guys have greatly improved the design of the oven.

Saw the 'red' clay tripod stoves made locally and they're more brown than red. The ones I saw in Tagbilaran where wonderfully red, so we have to search them out when in the city again.

Brickies wife works in child care ... He employs kids to do his drawings !
Those "red clay tripod stoves" sounds interesting. If the basic deisign is good trick it up with a bit of insulation. Would be worth the investigation. Some pics and discription would be good

In that case its the best drawing ever!

Sure I'll try to remember to bring a camera next trip. Getting senile though... The thing about those tripod stoves is they are red clay so there must be some out there locally to buy, or at least in the city. That's where we'll start tracking down the manufacturer of the very red one, better than brownish red clay. Since the bricks are made of the stuff and its an important ingredient in the refractory cement I absolutely must find out where the tripods are made. Don't know what other use could be made of those stoves, they aren't really that big. I'll try to get pics.
