Magh CM Woodgas Good Stove http://e-maghcm.blogspot.com/ designed recently is a very low cost TLUD stove meant for Common Man (CM). This can be produced by the local communities with less than 8 dollars (USD). Under Magh CM series I have designed many stoves / burners in the past. This stove design is one of the most acceptable stoves, as it has the options to run on forced air / natural draft. Most importantly the convenient charcoal / ash removal facility is created at the bottom, the grate can be simply lifted using a wire and immediately refilled for reuse. The additional window for secondary air in case of no power, the primary air control and the 12 V DC powered fan makes it like a geared vehicle for multiple options to control the heat / flame / updraft. Used the most commonly available oil tin can of 12 inches x 9 inches x 9 inches with a combustion chamber of 6 inches diameter and 9 inches height for the convenience of adoption for a family of 5 members cooking needs. The tin cans are easily available all over India. Posting here the pictures and the design for your valuable comments for improvement. I am thankful to all for your valuable suggestions in the past. This is the 30th Good Stove design of Avan and Magh series since last 4 years of my research and design. Happy to share that the people who have seen this stove have paid money in advance for having these Stoves.
