Good lead, thanks. I will end up ordering a rheostat after the initial setup is complete and I am sure the stove works for me.

I was a couple of towns over today getting my license renewed and remembered that there was a stove shop in the area. Tracked it down and found that they carried the Stove Bright paint. So I got 2 cans of the Metallic Black. That should give a nicer finish than the Rustoleum I was considering using.

They happened to have a Vigilant II coal stove, listed for $1550 and I was told they would sell it for 200 less. It was cool to see one in person after seeing them online so much. If anyone wants to follow up, let me know. It is RI though, so out of the way for many members. I also saw the latest Resolute Acclaim, and was not really impressed with the workmanship. The sections did not seem to fit together very cleanly, not like the older stoves.

My plan is to spend this weekend cutting the legs, removing the heat shield, and prep for paint. Not sure if I will get to the painting, it is Valentines.

I have continued this discussion in a new post focused on the Citation stove:
