,The chimney is a interior one.
, the dampner opening is a 7" long by 4" wide opening the dampener is a slide style and removes from the opening.
, I was considering a hand Baro as I have exprience with them from wood stove operation. Thanks for the tip on burning stove coal, now I just have to find out who sells it in my area.
I'll send pic's ,I also contacted Russo Stoves in Randolph Ma. at 781-963-1182 in trying to buy a replacement blower motor.
LSFarm/All , I figured 1/4" plate gasketed and using 1200 degree RTV silicone sealant, then using red hat masonry/concrete anchors to squeeze the plate to the face of the fireplace should do the trick. what do you think?
the fireplace opening I'm covering is 25" X 25" .
