Default The Semi Rim Stove

My Dad brought this stove over yesterday, and we installed it in the shop. Its one he made about 17 years ago from 4 semi rims. He told me I could have it since he don't use it anymore. Heres some Photos:Front & side view. Justine took these Photos. Kevin

That is just darn neat. I wish I had room in my shop for a wood burning stove. They are so cool in a shop.

That thing looks scary to me all that exposed hot metal.
I have an air tite stove in the shop and the guard gets pretty warm in use.
I would put a guard around it.

tnmike, I will post some pics of the inside and of the grate. But right now it has a fire in it. The 2 lower rims are Budd wheels and the upper ones are Dayton wheels. the Budd rims are welded together like duallys on a truck that forms the area for the grate. I'll have to get a pic for you.

Terry, Its not too bad I just don't touch it when theres a fire going.

Theres alot of things I do that scare some people.LOL

I think that's just plain cool, Kevin.

Terry, I thought a stove was supposed to get hot? Kinda like, that's what they do?

A guard on that would kinda be like a guard on a sharp knife. Thanks for the pics...they can wait until the fire dies down.
