Product Description

Are you tired of over consuming fire wood or paying too much on your energy bills during winter ?
Do you want to stop polluting the planete with inefficient wood stoves ?

Great ! You will learn it all and more in these 4 DVDS ! From the basics of fire science to advance water heating systems.
The centerpiece in this series is the rocket mass heater. Possibly the cleanest and most sustainable way to heat a conventional home.
This started off as an advanced rocket mass heater workshop which quickly sold out. People asked for it to be videoed. So Paul Wheaton, "duke of permaculture", took his video camera and here they are : 4 DVDS !
To make things clear, it's not an Hollywood mega production but key moments of the workshop that will give you invaluable knowledge to tackle your own projects.

DVD 1 is "Fire Science", Ernie and Erica Wisner set stuff on fire in all sorts of wacky ways. This is the foundation for understanding how rocket stoves and rocket mass heaters work.
DVD 2 is "Sneaky Heat". The "rocket" built in this DVD is the result of many experiments, making it one order of magnitude better than any previous one. We used a portable design, something that can be taken apart in under an hour, loaded onto a truck, moved and rebuilt in under an hour.
DVD 3 is "Boom Squish", named after the dangers of alternative hot water. Caleb Larson and Ernie work together to talk about how to do this right. Caleb is a professional hot water installer and is very familiar with the explosive properties of steam, flash point and vapor lock.
DVD 4 is "Hot Rocket", where we prove that few twigs can outperform a propane turkey cooker with a J-tube style rocket stove that is self feeding. This DVD will also have information on home made cook stoves, and several different pocket rocket designs.

I've watched the first 3 DVDs so far. I've learned some good concepts but mostly these just contain general knowledge about wood heating and RMHs. I was hoping for step-by-step construction, or a few designs, or anything that I haven't already seen on the internet for free. Mostly they take a handi-cam to the back of their group classes and then plug their books when it comes to the nitty-gritty stuff. I wouldn't recommend these DVDs although the hosts are pretty interesting characters so it's not without edu-tainment value. If you want to build RMHs I suggest buying a book.

Item shipped on time, but 1 of the 4 DVD's won't play - I also have not received any of the limited time special bonus offerings even though I have replied twice to the offer. All around I am pretty disappointed.

UPDATE: These guys did good on the bad DVD, sent me a whole new set. 5 stars for that! Part of the issue is that Amazon sucks and basically was trying to force me to return the whole set rather then just let me contact the seller.

Now that I have watched all 4 DVDs;

Fire Science - good info, bad video. (I already knew 99% of this info as a fire fighter)
Sneaky Heat - The best DVD of the bunch.
Boom Squish - This is where I was most interested. This DVD SUCKED. They spend half the time telling you not to do what they did, then they don't even show you what you did. Really disappointing. (I bought the whole set for this one disc, so my overall disappointment is quite high)
Hot Rocket - just ok.

As is stated in the beginning of every DVD, you as the video watcher takes a back seat to what is going on. It's an expensive back seat ticket.

When I first received the disks I was expecting the content to be solely revolved about rocket mass heaters, but I was delighted to discover the breadth and depth of the topics covered in the 4 discs. The fire science portion is very informative, interesting, and easy to understand, and the subsequent discussions of various other techniques and technologies were similarly elucidating in ways that I had not anticipated. These discs provide a very thorough educational experience, and I would recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone interested in the subject.

These are, in point of fact, rockety enough. Oct. 25 2013
By cstamps - Published on Amazon.com
Purchased these a while back and was very happy with them. Very detailed, fun to watch. I intend to use them as part of our homeschool science curriculum. If you are planning to build a rocket mass heater, this is going to greatly improve your odds of success.

Great information - Easy to understand format Oct. 28 2013
By Ken Ivey, the Web Czar - Published on Amazon.com
I really liked the way this information on Rocket Mass Heaters and "Rocket" technology was presented.

This is not one of those boring corporate training DVD's - what you're getting is a bird's-eye view of live workshops with occasional interjections of a panel discussion on the material presented, in a very engaging - yet very laid back environment. It was actually hard to stop watching... And now I feel ready to tackle a project!

I did a more in-depth video review here: [...]

The Good - Very easy to understand and visually-presented concepts. Great Value - yes, it's $100 - but what you learn could save you many times that in your first season of heating, not to mention the frustration you'll avoid by learning from THEIR mistakes!

Could be Better - At several points, there were URL's to supplemental resources - they could include a list of these links in the dvd packaging so those who didn't take notes could easily find them. :) (or, just remember to take notes while watching!)

If you're thinking about building a rocket stove, but need a little push (or are worried about having the skills) this will make a great investment. Having watched them create different variations of the stoves, and explaining in detail the ins & outs - you'll feel confident in the direction you need to go to make the leap.

Got it through the kickstarter Oct. 23 2013
By S. Bublitz - Published on Amazon.com
Paul Wheaton does some of the most important work on this planet, and I'm very glad that he's creating new ways for him to share his knowledge. I rated this five stars, even though the production values are dicey at times. The video isn't the best and the sound isn't always the best. However, the information provided in this video set is invaluable for anyone concerned about the environment, anyone trying to live sustainably AND comfortably, and anyone pursuing a homesteading lifestyle.

Ernie and Erica Wisner are great teachers, and despite the production quality, the clarity of their explanations and lessons comes through very well. This is an excellent, EXCELLENT purchase for anyone who wants to jump into the world of Rocket Mass Heaters.

Great Information Oct. 23 2013
By Joshua Smith - Published on Amazon.com
I have at this point only watched two of the four DVD's. I watched the Fire Science DVD twice in a row there is so much good stuff in there. I don't have a rocket mass heater yet, but I am able to start a fire even faster in my conventional woodstove due to what I learned in these videos. I agree the production isn't the best, and I would give it a four star rating, but the information is outstanding. I will use these resources for many years to come.

This is revolutionary. We need to control our waste of energy! Jan. 11 2014
By Dave C. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
After understanding the concept of how to create your own wood burning stove, I can't understand why anyone wouldn't do this. Amazing!
