    It’s pressed steel with spot welding...

    The general idea is similar to the type of heater dome marketed by Burmos in the 1950s (here). But the cone shape is very different.

    It works best on a silent burner:

    Not so good on a roarer:

    My one that I made works best on a silent burner too. It also keeps the noise down. I did it because I got in a pile of incombrences a heater head and I thought nothing lost if it doesn’t work but it works quite well. Remember to use a heat reflective dish to keep the tank from over heating.

    Cheers

    PS, I don’t know what it’s output is but it uses the same as a stove.

    Is it made of hammered plough blades?
