Thanks Steve. I wonder if possible for the stove having no lever for the check damper to make some with a rod attached to the damper and going out from a drilled hole in the stoves' side?

I didn't noticed that on the photo we can see the sealing made around the mica. Done with Ultra Black as done around a window...It really makes a solid but flexible air tight seal. When sealed like that the mica seem stronger when touched or when needing to be cleaned up.

Pierre,

Yes now that you mention it, It could easily be done through a small hole in the side with a rod attached to the vent button. Would be quiet a bit easier than removal of the ash pan to make the adjustment.

With the mag in , the fire pot was not filling around the top. The fire pot beeing very small, 9.5" Diam., all the anthracite pieces are needed. To get more anthracite in the fire pot I cut 3/4" at the bottom of the mag.
Works better!

I just drilled 2 holes at the end of each slots then used a jigg saw to cut between the holes.
I looked at all I could find on the forum about where the vents were located. Some photos are in the present in previous pages. I was scared about having gasses build up in the mag but it never happens yet.

How long does she burn with a full mag Pierre? Just a shake down every 12hrs or so?

Steve, I never tried to see how long the stove could burn with a full mag. The fire pot is not very deep so ash accumulates too fast to get very long burn times.
I made the mag to be able to top load the stove like with the VigII, very easy and clean to load from the top. The other reason for the mag was to have the anthracite warmer/hotter before reaching the burning area, so the recovery time is shorter.
Shake both grates every 12 hrs then load to the top.
I will not tell how much ant I put in the mag after each 12 hrs periods, almost unbelievable. Even for a so small room 10 X 16 Ft, the stove makes the heating job in a fantastic way. I never imaginated it could makes it on the low heat output like that. But the stove can heat much more if wanted.
The most important thing for a stove is to be able to controll it the way WE want to , low or high.

Pierre, the Bride didn't come with a magazine? I thought about making one for the coal Chubby but didnt know how I'd seal it.

All of these type of Base Burners had magazines originally as standard equipment. Over time they were removed or burned out due to hard use. Now when you find one of these, it may have the magazine, but; more often it has been long gone.

Hi IOF.
When I got the bride there was no mag in it but as many on the forum were saying about the advantages about having a mag, I decided to make one.
A friend of mine have a plumber business and gave me a 6" diam X 24" new cast iron pipe. It was exactly the good diam. for the opening port. I painted wit the paint suggested by Lisa on a previous post and the paint still like new since in the stove. I tried stove polish the first time but it washed off very fast.

One drawback from having a mag is when you lose the fire you must get the anthracite out of the mag, remove the mag... to be able to start a new fire. Not supposed to lose a fire but it arrives... Maybe some removed them in the past for that reason and lost them as the time went by???
Maybe there are some better ways to do it an other way but it's the one I used when it arrived.
But I found more advantages to have the mag than not having it.
