I know most wood burning stoves are made from cast iron, but I was
wondering about making one from cast Aluminium? Al is used for heat
sinks for many products so I'm thinking that this metal would seem
like a natural choise for a home built stove that would radiate heat
generated from burning wood.
I've got the foundry and can make the patterns myself, so I could
design and build the stove on my own, but I just don't want to deal
with Fe, I'd rather use Al. Any thoughts?
