  3. Impressive. I could use one of these to heat water at the cabin. With
    enough insulation it might even work well enough during winter?

  5. good video

  6. Sounds like the glass was BAD TEMPERED, Sorry bad joke. I was idly
    wondering if angled mirrors inside the oven could be used to focus the sun
    onto a particular cooking spot in the oven? or perhaps it’s better black to
    absorb the suns rays. Unfortunately Here in the North of the UK we would
    all be VERY slim and hungry if we had to rely on the sun for cooking! lol!!!

  7. huh?? what? fired. crap. My own personal experience; take two weeks and
    shake off the anger and disappointment. Sorry buddy.

    By ThereWillBeHellToPay on Jan 9, 2014

  8. Glass cracking.. it’s always something.. Sorry to hear you’ve been fired…
    THAT’s not good…. Anxious to hear details…

  9. I guess glass breakage = success, sorry to hear that about the job waiting
    to hear the details for sure.

  11. If my oven reaches 350, I wouldn’t mind it cracking. It means you are doing
    something right, except for the glass. The hottest my oven got to, with
    food in it, is about 290. I just made some minor adjustment to it also so I
    might get to 300 F.

  12. im not sure it would make a difference.

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  13. I was just wondering if you had any ideas on whether it would be better to
    make the inside of the box reflective rather than black. I’m just thinking
    that only real thing that needs to be dark, is the cooking pot. Wouldn’t
    the added reflective insides reflect more solar energy onto the dark pot?

    By ciferific on Jan 9, 2014

  14. Thanks for the quick reply. I’m in the process of building one. I am going
    to try the reflective. I’ll let you know my results.

    By ciferific on Jan 9, 2014

  15. Sorry about your glass. other than that it looks like a win to me.

    By lenty2000 on Jan 9, 2014

  16. you need pyrex glass from the old days so the glass wont crack it,s called
    borosilicate glass. hope you can get it :-

    By AdolphusOfBlood on Jan 9, 2014

  17. black tiles as heat retention . good idea. im still tweaking mine a little.
    i watched your solar oven video.you did a great job. that sounds like a new
    england accent. what part?

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  18. im real happy that i finally made enough tweaks to get it over 300. now
    there pretty much isnt anything that cant be cooked in it.

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  19. Trial and error! Makes perfect.

    By subtac on Jan 9, 2014

  20. there are two schools of thought and i cant honestly say which is truest.
    one is that reflective material inside the oven will reflect the sun back
    out. the other is that black absorbs heat and heat is what you want inside.
    ive only done the black inside. if you do the reflective, please let me
    know how it´╗┐ works.

  21. i would highly recommend building one. im gonna put a link in my
    description to my freinds solar oven. he gives a link in his description,to
    the guy that originally build that type of oven and he will email you the
    plans. you could also make on on the cheap with cardboard boxes and a piece
    og glass. people have had great success with those as well. my next “how
    to” will be building one as cheap as possible with things i already have
    including cardboard.

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  22. i was going to cook in it today but it will be cloudy all day.

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  23. if you have normal glass it will on the inside expand when it gets hot,
    putting stress on the cold glass on the outside. When the stress gets too
    great, it cracks but borosilicate glass wont due to the fact that Boron
    changes the atomic structure of glass so it stays roughly the same size
    regardless of its temperature.

    By AdolphusOfBlood on Jan 9, 2014

  24. i have a freind that has had great results with his cardboard version.

  26. what if you line the inside of the box with the mirra material?

  27. an attack on my character is impossible! i have no character!

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 9, 2014

  28. You probably don’t need this advice, but if you glue that cardboard with a
    water based glue, alternate the grain, and make sure you weigh it down
    under some plywood on a flat surface so it doesn’t warp. If you don’t, it
    will almost certainly warp. Tape the corners so none of it slips while it’s
    being weighed down, and it’s better to cut it big because it WILL slip a
    little. Then it can be trimmed with a sharp saw, and sanded to fine tune
    it. I hope I don’t come across as a pompous a-hole.

    By John Strabismus on Jan 9, 2014

  29. OK.. so how are you going to keep the sun shinning in at 70 degrees as it
    keeps moving across the sky? When you set the oven at optimum angle to the
    sun… 10 minutes later the sun has moved Need a “tracker” of some kind to
    follow the sun… Still don’t think that’s the solution.. If you get 70
    degrees on one side, you don’t have 70 on any of the others. But I don’t
    really know.. and no solutions to offer.. except a reverse mirror on top of
    those.. like a TV satellite dish..

  33. I think you have it right this time. It’s going to be hot.

  34. I cant wait for the test

  35. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

    By patriots1needed on Jan 9, 2014

  36. Looking good. You’ve put in alot of work on that one. There is one big
    thing to consider when setting the angle of the mirrors. Looking straight
    at the mirror array, the wider the mirrors are the more energy they collect
    and concentrate to the focal area. At that angle you’re not reflecting as
    much light to the focal area as if that angle of the array was opened more.
    It’s all about how much energy you can reflect to the focal area.

  37. funny you should suggest that. i just returned from an appliance store with
    the motherload of cardboard. im working on a hinge mechanism now and will
    start on the cardboard as soon as i come up with a satisfactory hinge

  45. tomorrow ill do a temp test.

    By BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose on Jan 10, 2014

  46. I’ve seen an oven with the side opening instead of the top. May help keep
    some heat in. Just a thought for next time.

    By kc5etw on Jan 10, 2014

  47. When you pulled the plastic back on the reflector could you hear my
    ooooooo, ahhhhhhh? Hey! One more thing. I heard someone exposed you! and
    did an unauthorized scathing attack of your character.

    By ThereWillBeHellToPay on Jan 10, 2014

  48. I know. Just playing with ya and letting you know I’m watching! :-)

    By subtac on Jan 10, 2014
