oil burner

I stumbled across this plan for an oil burner that shows promise.
No pumps
no orifice
no real filter (well, if you wanted one, I suppose)
no electric or wiring needed
no fan

Can't say you could fire a kiln with it, but it certainly gives a decent
output...maybe to heat a studio?

Go here:
and click on Robert Sander's version

Even a potter with limited mechanical ability should be able to cobble
one of these

Free heat--good,
free fuel for a kiln firing--better,
telling your neighbor you fired his new "favorite" mug using the old
motor oil he gave you--priceless
