to use it to heat water which wll then be reticualted to heat my galss

I found a great link in

Does anyone have some idea of a way of making I suppose a heat
exchanger etc?

I am also open to other ideas etc to heat the water and do not have to
utilise the above design

go to scrappies and get one. Large commercial ac units contain them,
and plenty get scrapped. Else use a car rad, or the exchanger out of
an old boiler etc. Not much point making one.

You couldnt get your WVO working with an oil fired boiler could you?

 I am also looking into converting an oil fired gun burner to use waste
oil and looking for links etc on the net... However narowiing the
search down using google is proving exhausting.....
