an attack on my character is impossible! i have no character!

John Strabismus says:

You probably don’t need this advice, but if you glue that cardboard with a
water based glue, alternate the grain, and make sure you weigh it down
under some plywood on a flat surface so it doesn’t warp. If you don’t, it
will almost certainly warp. Tape the corners so none of it slips while it’s
being weighed down, and it’s better to cut it big because it WILL slip a
little. Then it can be trimmed with a sharp saw, and sanded to fine tune
it. I hope I don’t come across as a pompous a-hole.

Al Stock says:

OK.. so how are you going to keep the sun shinning in at 70 degrees as it
keeps moving across the sky? When you set the oven at optimum angle to the
sun… 10 minutes later the sun has moved Need a “tracker” of some kind to
follow the sun… Still don’t think that’s the solution.. If you get 70
degrees on one side, you don’t have 70 on any of the others. But I don’t
really know.. and no solutions to offer.. except a reverse mirror on top of
those.. like a TV satellite dish..

I cant wait for the test

patriots1needed says:

Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

STARFIRESOLAR says:

Looking good. You’ve put in alot of work on that one. There is one big
thing to consider when setting the angle of the mirrors. Looking straight
at the mirror array, the wider the mirrors are the more energy they collect
and concentrate to the focal area. At that angle you’re not reflecting as
much light to the focal area as if that angle of the array was opened more.
It’s all about how much energy you can reflect to the focal area.

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

funny you should suggest that. i just returned from an appliance store with
the motherload of cardboard. im working on a hinge mechanism now and will
start on the cardboard as soon as i come up with a satisfactory hinge
design.

jcenge1 says:

SUnlight is definitely abundant down here brother. Hope your oven works out
well!

Gar Whit says:

will you post where to get the plastic that you are using garry w

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

well its only up to about 700 pounds so far. i hired some temporary
employees so i can move it outside and cook with it.

wyattoneable says:

That’s a heavy duty stove! Great project and I hope it works out great for
you!

polystyrene morror sheet. it is .040 thick by 48 inch by 96 inch. they will
send it COD.

subtac says:

Oh man! I’ve never seen wood cut. You should have filmed it. 🙂

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

today ill look for cardboard. dont even have a clue as to where to look.

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

tomorrow ill do a temp test.

kc5etw says:

I’ve seen an oven with the side opening instead of the top. May help keep
some heat in. Just a thought for next time.

ThereWillBeHellToPay says:

When you pulled the plastic back on the reflector could you hear my
ooooooo, ahhhhhhh? Hey! One more thing. I heard someone exposed you! and
did an unauthorized scathing attack of your character.

subtac says:

I know. Just playing with ya and letting you know I’m watching! 🙂

John Strabismus says:

Try an appliance store. Maybe they’ll give you some.

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

sure. ill do it right now.

contreeman says:

mom that a tired crew you got there. don’t let them play so hard and no
naps in the afternoon or they won’t sleep at night. dad warn us were gonna
need sunglasses for the unveiling. great job

jnull0 says:

Great vid bro, good to see you. Can’t wait to see it in action….(if you
can move it outside). J

thomas reddick says:

welcome back!

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

i would have but it took so long to get the size just right with my pocket
knife .i didnt think anyone would want to watch that long.

Al Stock says:

Well, that takes care of THAT problem! Good luck in the new design…

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

ive signed an agreement with the sun to not move while im cooking.

rchopp says:

Looking good, that stuff is shiny for sure, can’t wait to see how the
improvements work.

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

ive got a sky crane coming. if i remove the roof of my shop,it should lift
out nicely. tomorrow i try out and see if the changes i made will make a
differance.

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

375 would be great!

AdolphusOfBlood says:

it,s looking good so far :-]

John Strabismus says:

I love it. With that much insulation, and the new reflectors you’re bound
to get temps way higher than the original 300 degrees you were hoping for.
I predict some new solar cooking videos will be a part of your future.

MrIvanthebadass says:

hey bctruck i went to that web site you said that you got that sheet of
miiror at and am having truble finding what you got can you say what you
acualy got

BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose says:

ive got the market cornered. 😉 i actually just came in from the shop.
