.Pot dimensions. Use mm1.
Input pot circumference
: use a soft tape to measure the
circumference
of the pot at the widest point
below
the handles.

Circumference of pot mm

Height of pot (Pot h)mm

Height of pot to bottom ofhandles mm(If the stove does not have ahandles, measure to just belowthe top pot lip)
To calculate accurate stove dimensions you need to convert the stovecircumference into the stove diameter:Pot Diameter = Pot Circumference/3.14=
M2 Stove Plans

The brick pot supportsshould be embedded in theclay body and they shouldprotrude 3 cm above the topof the stove bodThe feed chamber openingshould be 15 cm high by 11cm wide. The total height ofthe stove body should be 20cmThe combustionchamber openingshould be 12 cmThese plans assume thatthe bricks used are 23 cmlong
Pot Skirt
The diameter ofthe skirt should be equal tothe pot diameter + 16 mm *see calc on final page.The pot support bricksshould be inset from theedge of the stove body.The diameter of the outeredge of the bricks shouldbe equal to pot d – 1 - 2cmPlace the pot supports soas to not interfere withthe brick lintel
Stove Body
should be madefrom 50% clay, 25% sand,and 25% straw by volumeThe total diameter of the stovebody should be no less than 4 cmlarger than the diameter of thelargest pot that is used.

Note: I have made a small error in this drawing. One of the pot supports isshown overlapping the lintel for the feed chamber. You should place the 3pot supports so they are not interfering with the lintel brick
The 2nd option is to split the lintel above the feedchamber entrance (as I've seen in some of theimproved stove designs that you are currentlyusing). This will create an expansion joint.The height of the stove bodyabove the feed chamber shouldbe 5 cm. As this is the weakspot in most stoves there are acouple options for reinforcing itThe 1
st
option is to use a fullbrick laid lengthwise to formthe lintel of the feed chamberentranceThere should be two 5 by 5 cm airinlets on either side of the stove

THE diameter of thestove body should beequal to the pot diameter+ 4 cmThe brick pot supports should be placed sothat the bricks are
paralle
l to the flow of thehot flue gases. Do not rotate the bricks as thiswill impede the flow of the hot flue gases.
