I was surprised to see how I could have the stove idling after getting the stove more air tight, for the second attempt I found many hidden gaps. So many places to inspect, even the fire pot seat base was having air leaks at the back. Thanks to the rope gaskets and Ultra Black Silicone.
Now I know that even if I completly close the air slide, I still have air for the combustion.
