Here's my new stove on her new hearth.

Here's my D.S. Machine New Style Champion. Planning on putting a mechanical damper in the same Tee below the Barometric damper. Please tell me what you think. Enclosed a pic of the bell over the air feed and the hole in the back that goes to the hole in the floor for fresh air draft. In front of the stove that shiney round thing is a cap that goes over the hole in nice weather. I'm going to cut the top off this one and glue a piece of screen to it.

Thanks, I appreciate that, you all. I did it with your advice and help. Did you notice that I used magnets to secure the bell to the air intake? Heck of a lot more flexible than screws. After I finalize the chimney I'm gonna slide her back about 3 inches. I may have a custom stove outlet made with the damper in the same pipe. That will give me close to 5 inches back! That will contain most of the heat within the shield and keep it off the walls. In my expereince, coal stove chimneys are cool to the hand above the barometric damper. Have you found the same thing? Otherwise I'll have to add more shielding adjacent to the chimney. :(

You have a air tight stove no need for a MHD the baro will take care of everything if you need or want to damper the fire
down use your air controls to do so or put some pea size coal on top of the fire bed at night . Very Nice setup good looking stove it looks like it was made for that room :D You need to set up your baro with a draft gauge or Manometer

Thanks for reminding me coal berner. Remember we had some discussion about that before :roll: .

Any ideas on making the chimney wind proof? The wind blows fierce here from the south in winter and I'll have to be pretty high because far from the peak.

J. C. Good I think they are good stoves tho never fired one yet. Like the fire box - can handle wood too in a pinch 16x16. Tell us how the quality is on yours - mine had a warped door and glass didn't fit tight.

Very nice install. No manual damper needed though. Also, I'd fire that bad boy up long before you need it so you can air out the house as the paint cures and smokes. That stove looks like it's built like a panzer!

Not sure if this applies to the intake but it might, better safe than sorry. Use at least 3 screws at each joint and whatever necessary to connect to the stove and thimble, it's not uncommon to get a minor "explosions" or a "puff back" usually during loading. Not much you can do at thimble but as long as the rest of it is secure and solid that shouldn't matter. It's very possible it will blow the pipes off the stove, and if you don't have them at joints they can come apart. Other than the safety issue you'll have a mess on your hands. Pipes coming off that have not been secured properly have happened. See here for more information: Minor Explosion In Coal Stove

As long as the flue pipes are properly secured it's non issue other than maybe your underwear or eyebrows if it happens when door is open. :)


The other question is if that is hand fired stoke why does it have intake at all? Such a large volume of air is not needed except maybe to get it started or if you really wanted to get it ripping. During normal operation a hand fired stove is going to need very little air. Is there a handle up front to control that?

Thermostatic controlled air intake.
The magnets can be affected by heat.
The ash pan 'air intake' is just for looks.
The over fire air does function.
