Outstanding pictures. Can really see the condition of the pieces. They don't look rust pitted at all which should make the nickel plating less costly since prep labor is less.

Anyone have any ideas as to why the secondary air passage can draw from the ash pan, I have never seen this. Will had a good idea on why, anyone else got any clues?

I think Will is right that it's like a barometric damper per se and lessens the draw. On my Herald there are vents in the back of the ash pit. While not like your stove where the firepot actually has that cast pocket, I think the same effect is achieved. On your's, since it also connects to that ring with the holes, it might also provide heated air for better combustion? (just guessing)

Thanks for that photo Steve. Looks like I will be learning how to burn the new stove, I still have not got it down with my #77... lol Oh well it should be easier this time since I have half a clue....

I think it is to lessen the primary air in high draft conditions that might not be adequately controlled by the vents in the ash pan door. Would aid in maintaining a low burn by diverting air. The air tightness of the ash pan door becomes less important.

This would be a good way to better control a non air tight stove such as a pot belly or cannon stove by adding a divert-er path.

That seems to make the most sense. Also there is a flap that covers a hole in the loading door. My #77 has that also, maybe this has something to do with it.

That air inlet in the back of the stove is expressly for the purpose of reducing the primary air draft pull through the fire when needed. I have never seen a design like that where the extra air is sent through the secondary air tubes. It will be very interesting to see how this stove performs. Here is yet another example of the brilliance of our Foundry Fathers. I am continually amazed at them.

Hi Guys, got a couple more done today. Have the grate ready to cast. One more, the base, and I will be done. Just have to wait for the new parts and the plating to be done..

I sure think it will be a hell of a lot better than my #77. I think that heat riser in the back is going to throw a lot more heat. The updraft starts below the stove and goes right past the fire pot. And with the built in Baro kinda design it should be easier to run.. Once I learn how... :)

Grumpy,

Great job and unique stove, can't wait to see it finished I would love to acid dip my stove parts. How do you dispose of the acid bath after you are done?

I used the acid solution to get my cast iron pipe for making the magazine cleaned and it worked very well. When finished, you can keep the acid in a safe covered container for an other cleaning job or dilute it with water and neutralize it by adding baking soda so it will ge a neutral PH. Then you can dispose of it safely.
Just remind to be safe with acid products
