Popped the unfinished box in the sun this morning for a dry run...200 degrees in 40 minutes - but no hotter. Built the outer shell and put it all together this afternoon with insulation. No materials in the Field Lab stock to build the frame for the single pane glass lid. Another heat test with reflectors tomorrow. I think I'm going to try a mini version of the Heaven's Flame Solar Cooker for my production run.
Was contacted last week by a soon to be new friend Bill Schneider-coming out to find his "bought sight unseen" land and try an experiment with the "waterboxx". Weather permitting, I will be hauling some water and a temporary storage tank to him when he comes out to find his tract next month.. I read about these last year but forgot all about them till Bill reminded me. http://www.groasis.com/page/uk/index.php Thought it would be a good experiment to try here as well so I ordered 4 to test out from Amazon. 59,75,30,0,B
