Installation finally complete!

Installation finally complete!

PostBy: n3hcp On: Sun Mar 01, 2009 1:37 pm

OK, so I've been reading and studying the mass of information available from the wise sages here in this forum. From this I have finally been able to amass the necessary parts and time to complete the installation of our Harmon Mark II in our cabin. Keeping in mind this is a "seasonal" dwelling, so the stove might get used 50 days out of the year. That said, if it's wort doing...well, you know.

Notice the barometric damper, manometer, buckets for sand and water, 2 coal scuttles, one for pea to start the fire, and one with nut or stove, depending on the temperature, and thermometers on the stove and the stack.
To think, when I started reading this forum I thought all I needed was a bag of coal and a couple matches to keep the stove happy. Silly me!! ;)

Seriously, thanks guys for all the good info!! :D

Where is the ambionic thermocouple? You'll get inverse radiant thermals without one!! :) :)

Beautiful job! It should serve you well. You do have a CO detector someplace? Good.

Will if that doesn't work well for you, someone sold you black rocks instead of coal :!: Good job, and that usually results in a good safe fire. :clap:

Thanks!! Yep...CO detector in the same room as the stove, and smoke detectors in every room.
