    That's my downfall or maybe my advantage idk but I work the trade and live the life so I can put 2 and 2 together and get it to work. I've done the cooling at fire place and stove places and its pretty clear that they do natural gas inserts and wood stoves. That stuff isn't hard, install it and light it up kind of like my line of work. Not that I'd pay anyone for advise or install anyways. I do all my own work unless it's something way out of my profession like windows and roofing.

    This may be the buffalo/WNY region but we get cold and lake effect snow and there is not much for wood heat and I'll say it people are lazy so the market is natural gas heat. If you are cold turn the thermostat up.

    Interesting. And no OAK for the wood furnace?

    I'm actually glad to see that you have also melted the airwash plate at the top of the loading door opening. Mine has sagged in a very similar way.

    I thought it came that way lol I'm not sure how it can be avoided it's not like I over fired it. I haven't had it above 550. The first couple days it wasnt above 300.
