Thanks guys for the boost

I had a quandary on a doorhing pin that I think is resolved it started as a post on norcans thread but I may have forgotten my manners

just a thought.on the hinge pins the hardware between your bride and my homie are very close the hinge pin in the photo,the dark one is knurled at the top to keep it tight in the door and it travels in the stationary barrel. The doors fit very well that have the original pins but the one that has a substitute pin is loose. I believe the hinge assembly needs this solid non wiggling set up to keep things aligned .
always best to modify the cheep part!

A really good hardware store should have hinge pins of various thicknesses. If you find one that fits but is too long just snip it off to the correct length. The hinge pins are CRITICAL in the performance of the stove. They must fit properly so the doors are tight.

Yes there are sources for various pins but can you get the correct pin? Such as the original dark pin as shown in the picture

Or is it just a compromise, As Rick stated they are a very important part

The thickness is the most important part. You can make it black with a little stove polish. It won't matter if it doesn't look just like the others as long as it fits and it works.

Very very nice. Now you have to learn how to run it. You'll have plenty of heat from now on. I really like the design for the thimble cover up on the ceiling.

Thanks again you're too kind. The conclusion of last nights burn of 20 pounds of coal lasted a little over 10 hours with all dampers closed the stove was too hot to touch at all times.
picture of remaining ashes some are hard crispy and most disenegrate if you touch them

Sounds like you might have an air leak...
Dampers closed and all...
If the stove is cold, a lantern inside when the room is dark will show the gaps...
But you have all that mica...
So a smoke test when you run the stove next...
The stove will draw in some of that cigar smoke through any leaks...

Smithy, outstanding installation and unique. Did you reproduce the motif that is on the elbow at the outlet of the stove to the ceiling? Very nice set up.
Did you check if you have open holes where the footrests hang to the ash pit sides it could be a big air leaks? You can place a light near the footrest hanging holes and look from inside the ashpit if you see any light. Also you can make the same test under the fire pot where it sits on its' sides bases. Be very careful from the firepots' level to the base in searching for air leaks.
Again bravo for the installation.

Thanks Norcan the motif is suppose to be the design from the cartoon tangled but may have been subliminal inspired.
I can see where having the ability to have a smaller deep fire for warmer weather is an advantage.my first burn with a full pot was successfull .
Now I am having delamination issues with the mica
