Havent tried it yet but the article says there is no smoke, needs ventilation for the fumes though.

Isn't there a risk of a dust explosion?

Be very VERY careful burning saw dust, it can be explosive. I know this through experience and still bear the scars!:eek:

A quantity of smouldering dust gives of large amounts of flamable gases, if these suddenly ignite could potentially explode. I would think a properly designed stove could safley burn dust. A couple of years ago i was cleaning up my workshop and threw a shovel of sawdust into the woodstove (not thinking) about 15min later KABOOM the cast iron door blew of the stove and left me with small pieces of cast shrapnell in my leg. Never did find the top section of the flue.
