Brake Drum Potbelly Shed Heater
G’day thought I’d share my brake drum potbelly heater I built over the last few weeks and have just installed in my shed this weekend. It goes pretty hard it was 3°C outside the shed and 27°C inside, with the flue mostly choked.
Also wrote a bit of a how to blog if any one was interested. https://doilygrunge.weebly.com/blog/...otbelly-heater

Hi there this is Awsom and I have 3 brake drums going to give this a go in abit confused as to how you have fixed the top drum to the middle is it just sitting on the plate in the grove that they have or have you welled the bent plate to the cast ? This is my first project with steel so I'm abit confused thanks heaps
