Who's built a waist oil burning stove for there shop?

I wondering has any of you guys built a waist oil burning stove? I'm not looking for idea's on company built units. There way to expensive and it cost way to much money to operate (for them to run). I'm souly looking for free heat or almost free heat. I will say this, I have built one. But, I'm looking for other ideas that you guys might have. I have tested several methods and finally boiled it down to forced air induction. I'm still working on it and should have it completed this weekend (hopefully). I first starting working on this from the mother earth news website. After several test, my findings were, there sooty producing stoves and they take allot of cleaning. I did some testing with compressed air, which turned out pretty good results. But my compressor takes to much electricity to operated. So, the next best thing is forced air induction. I'm currently using a HVAC blower motor (1.8 amps) for the forced air induction. Was wondering if any you gents have taken this route and what are your findings? Good or bad. By the way, the MEN stove that mother earth news built was a hot water heater stove. Mine is a barrel over barrel stove. The top barrel is a heat exchanger. My barrels are "NOT" 55 gallons drums either. There natural gas pipes that I got real cheap. The metal is 3/8 inch thick. I bought a 6 foot section and cut it in half and started from there. My stove is 3 foot long and stands a little over 5 foot tall. Any of you guys care to share some of your finding? Thanks, Cliff

BTW...I dont have an updated picture since I went to forced air induction. The picture that I have is when I was testing compressed air for atomizing the oil. I'll try to get some updated pictures of forced air induction that I'm testing.

We had a factory-built waste oil heater to heat the garage I worked in during the 80's. It was basically an oil furnace converted to burn waste oil. We had more tha enough waste oil from all the oil change services we did, so it was a no-brainer. The downside was that it stunk the garage up, and the burner needed daily cleaning to keep it burning effectively. The crud we scraped out of the firing chamber was nasty. But it was virtually free heat, so the boss was happy! Here's an interesting website: http://www.backyardmetalcasting.com/oilburners03.html

I put up a few videos up on my photobucket account. I tried you tube but couldn't get them to upload. You Tube said something about Firefox might lock up if trying to upload videos using Firefox browser. One of the videos is dial up friendly. I think its only about three seconds long. I have two more videos but I will download them later. I have a total of three videos uploaded to photobuckets website.
