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

My Stanley Argand stove has a fire pot just like that. It was a common design and many stoves had it. The serrated bottom allows for air to be evenly distributed around the base of the fire. Also with the round shaker portion of the grate this feature allows for a controlled amount of ash to be shaken out of the fire for times when you want to create a very slow burn with an ash layer on the grates. I use this method to easily get 14 hour burns out of the Stanley Argand by allowing just a little bit of air to enter around the perimeter of the firepot. The fire lasts and lasts and the stove runs cool enough to rest your bare hand on it for a long time, yet the fire can be livened up at any time by shaking the center portion of the grates. These stoves are so versatile and allow for many different modes of running them.
As far as the ceramic liner for the fire pot. Try this link below. I am going to try the product this man sells when my Glenwood needs its liner replaced at some point. Take a look.

Why plywood? Why not cement board? Are you planning on cementing the tiles down?

I used plywood (3/8") to thicken the base and with the tiles on it, the surface will be the same height as the floor's one. Having the sliding door arriving so close to the tiles, I wanted no step on the floor. To please the insurrances agent, I will make a steel bottom heat shield with a shield insert (double bottom) under my BB (OH-Oh-OH)

Fred,

My house is the same way. In my son's room and in my kitchen. The height of the ceiling from the floor to the bottom of the window is 19". But when you go outside and look it's 36". Its weird.
