And yes, Nortcan is now an offical member of the base burner society.
Well, the competition is getting hard for this BB's name.
Someone having a plating co. here told me a few weeks ago that it woul cost around $350. + for the finial re nickelling. But at that time he didn' saw the part.
Will, have you ever burnt a stove having the same fire pot desing? I mean a fire pot having these sort of fingers at the bottom of it?
Is it an obligation to have these fingers?
What I imagined is when shaking the grates and rotating the round grate, lot of ash dust would get the micas very dirty???
Also do you think that it could be possible to make a lining in the fire pot to protect it? I had so many bad experiences with my previous Vermont C. having fire directly in contat with the cast iron surfaces so I don't want to see that again in this stove.
Thanks for my Official base burner society membership
