I named it a "Will" liner. You know why? 9.5" diam. at the top, yes it's a small fire pot. I will place a garbage bag in the fire pot and fill it with ant to see how many pounds it holds. With that number I'm sure someone here will be able to tell the BTU output of the stove.

The thought that went into every detail of these masterpieces never ceases to amaze me. And, thanks for the compliment by the way.

The fire pot makes only: 9.5" Diam at the top, 8.5"Diam at the bottom and is 7.75" H.There is a floor register between the sliding door and the piano and blowing toward the stove. So the heat from the stove may be directed away from the piano and an other cold air return register pulling air from that small living room. If I still have too much warm air there I can send some in the basement below that room. I will see...opposite to the majority of burners, I hope to have a low heat output. If I should moove the piano I will have to place it outside of the house, no more space inside...LOL. The BB has already taken the place where the Chrismas tree is usually placed.

Thanks Will. You know, I was really going for the full top to bottom liner but what made me change was because you have the same syst. in your nice Stanley A. lot of people talk about things... but don't have experienced what they say.... Talking about your Stanley A. do you use both grates to shake the ash out, when you burn it on cold days?
And you'r all right for the way they made stoves at these times. I had 5 stoves(new ones) before the BB and none come near the conception of these antique stoves. And I was thinking all the opposite before calming me and taking time to study all I could read about them. These stoves have certainly something others stoves don't have.
Giving your name to the fire pot desing had 2 reasons: if it work fine I will think to you and if it does'n I will also think to you LOL.
