How much do you charge for one of your burners?

Looks similar to this:

Price is on the site on the right hand side 390, They are different to the ones you mentioned but the principle is the same. Waste oil Burners (http://wasteoilburners.blogspot.com/)

Looks great but a bit far too send for me. Any chance of a set of plans?

Could it be easily modified with a heat exchanger for water do you think?

as for converting a heating boiler thats quite possible by fitting a burner box underneath it would take a bit of work and design to get it to burn clean, its something that i will be playing with for my own use as a bit of fun over time.

we used to have one of these in the garage that I worked at. Chucked out some serious heat although took a bit of persistance to get it going.

Local council banned us burning waste oil in it, said it was polluting (and that was 20 years ago).

Ive got a 1970s Salamander itll burn the arse off ya and believe it or not once hot burns clean on waste oil, but I would,nt use it in the garage as it can on the odd occasion throw a 4ft flame out the top,:twisted: I am very lucky to live in a small village with no real close neighbours, I put it outside the garage door and the heat blows right in the door, cushty on very cold days.
And before anyone starts shouting they were illegal years ago, yes I know and dont give a sh1t he he.

They are a tad scarey as as your just burning a big pot of oil and no vent outside so all the vapour fumes vent inside. I used one years ago myself :)
The drip feed system with flu outide is a lot safer and no worries about fumes/ vapours.
Hard to be a warm workshop no matter the form of heating, free is always better though, more money for the cars :D

Hi Rob,

Jolly good luck with it! You wanna go visit local workshops, garages, builders. I probably could have done with something similar on my house project.
