I recently picked up a third 507 on the cheap, from craigs, I was lucky, again. My question is, has anyone replaced ALL the firebrick, from the bottom to the top? This stove has seen some heat, the upper inner casts are trash, and the lower firebrick(molded) has some considerable bubbles, although maybe its ok , so just put some brick in the top as done by others. I would like to do this once and correctly, so I thought I would ask? Probably use a disc grinder/ chisel/hammer to get the lowers out, if needed. I will post pics, to see what you all think, as I process this decision. Thank you for any future information. Robert
Did that Jotul 507 come from C/L Southern Maine?
I think you could recast over what is left of the lower firebrick if you clean them up well.....
I used a 4" Makita grinder with a diamond blade. It will cut firebrick like butter.
Good luck with the Jotul...They make a great anthracite stove !!!!
