Hottubtimemachine

Postby jonnyd » Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:32 pm

A bit of fun for a Friday. A load of larch was delivered and we started with the base. The T&G boards were held temporarily underneath whilst a circle was routed out to 1.75m diameter

Image

The boarding was pre machined but a housing was needed to fit over the base so this was done on the RAS

Image

The boards were placed around the base and pulled in with some large ratchet straps.

Image

Over she goes

Image

You can see the metal straps holding it together here

Image

The heating is done by woodburner which you can see here.

Image

Cheers

Jon

How long will it take to heat up.

Well seeing as it's a hot tub and apparently Jon's Old Man might be kicking things off, I thought we'd get all Frank Zappa about it! :lol:

Thanks for the interest the parts were purchased from logosol along with the timber to go with it see here http://www.logosol.com/store/uk/index.p ... ksbad.html

The idea is as has already been said that the water expands the joints and makes it all tight and leak free.

Had a few bits to finish of in the workshop some galvanised support brackets were coach screwed to the sides to take the seating and the burner was bolted to the side of the tub.

Image

Got some muscle in to load onto my trailer was too heavy to lift so was rolled .

Image

A guard was made for the woodburner and in this pic you can see the finished seating as well

Image

Filling started and there were a few leaks from the bottom but only slight. As the cold water went in it kept the beers cold.

Image

It took about 3 hours to fill and get to 35 degrees.

In use

Image

A bit of over exuberant use of the wood burner meant the water got up to a toasty 48 degrees. Overnight a spare sheet of celotox insulation was put over and it was still very hot in the morning. Leaks are now a minimum about 10mm of depth lost over night.

Overall a fun project and another one has been ordered today for a mate.

Cheers

Jon

So have you kept it on the trailer and are currently driving round Boston with the family in the back? Should raise a few eyebrows - although having been to Boston, maybe it won't :lol:

Looks cool and I like the woodburner in theory, but don't do forward planning! There's some people offering electric kits to add into those...........

You should make them and rent them out!
