    Thinking of a tube into it like a pan handle shape. Lighting it was easy, I dropped a couple of lighter blocks and a aerosol lid of paraffin, when the paraffin started fizzing I put two lids full of oil in. Burned for 20mins.when its in the stove it will have a drip feed oil supply so once it's lit it should keep going until the oil is switched off

    Got my plumbing ordered including a length of stainless steel pipe for the drip feed. Found a suitable tank too

    Plumbing stuff turned up within 24 hours! Toolstation are ace! Free postage too.

    Had a play today, fitted some swirl plates which do exactly as they say on the tin.
    Found a suitable oil tank too.....

    By the time I upgrade the fan and fit the ducting the outlet temperature at the end of the ducting will be lower...

    Now you need to make a small one that would blow warm air into a camper. Then sit round it in the evening to keep warm and have a nice toasty camper when it’s bed time:):)
