If I have reduced it small enough!
Must have been a slightly diff model than mine. (or the one posted with inside pics)
Mine had one horizontal window in the door while yours had 2 vertical windows.
It was an ok stove once you got used to it & adapted it a bit:
1. The coal bed was not deep enough so I ran a peicve of steel across the front (about 2" high) to hold a deeper bed.
2. It was so deep & dark that I would have to use a flashlight sometimes.
3. A real nightmore to clean out!
4. Not good with air management. Even with all vents shut tight (& good gaskets) it was tough to get a low temp burn.
5. As I said b4, I would often get a low CO reading on my CO detector. (I would often have to fully open the ash door (& a few windows) to let the fire get hot b4 it would stop leaking low levels of CO into the house...By comparison, this is my 3rd year with the Harman TLC2000 & even with lowerer temp burns, my Nighthawk digital reading CO detector has never read anything but "0")
6. Great for burning wood as you could get alot in there.
