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.

The idea is to seal any gap that will allow air to bypass the coal bed from the ash pan area and go straight up the chimney carrying heat with it and not allowing the stove to develop its full potential. The gap on the back of the doors is the common offender. With doors closed it has to seal tight against the fire pot. That also applies to any internal parts on the sides that could allow air in. You want all air to go through the coal bed.

Once sealed you will have to close the air intake down to control the fire. the stove will be completely different and a lot more controllable.

That stove should go way over 300... You'll have to post pictures. I'd need to see how you have the stove set up, the grates, the side walls and all that. What's your chimney? How tall? What diameter? Inside, outside?

I don't understand you last question.
