Well, today I was shop vacuming around the stove and low and behold where the "elbow" meets the back pipe base, I found a thumb pull that operates the check damper! Sheesh, it was there all the time! Here is a pix. There was not too much that they didn't think off back in the day!
Very happy for you. And honestly I was very surprised they had not some devices to work the check damper from the outside.
These ""old timers"" should be very happy up there to see how happy we are when using these great Heritages from the past in our so ""advanced"" days.
Yes, I had to laugh and thought about our conversation when I found it! Embarassing but very cool!
