    If you are building a wood burning boiler to use live steam, it would be well worth the time to go to: sensiblesteam.net Try to read the whole site. I'm mulling over a corn burning boiler...but I'm leaning towards buying the actual boiler...they can be very dangerous. Let us know.

    If you got to all the trouble to make one, make it an outdoor one, less mess, and cheaper insurance.
