Smithy, while in front of my stove, I saw gaps inside the slide of the ash pit door. Your gap is at the top but mines are where the slide close on each slots. Very small gaps.
So my conclusion is: maybe the stoves from the past were already at the EPA standards? On the EPA stoves you can't completly close the air inlet so you don't choke the stove. LOL

Or at least that was intended,

Ha,ha,ha, yep I'd imagine that back then, idling the stove down wasn't a huge consideration as long as the stove was controllable. That was someone's main source of heat and they depended on it to get hot! ;)

I think that with these stoves (maybe all stoves), the best is to have the stove as air tight as possible from the lower parts and work with the rest of non air tight sections.
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.

That's right Pierre. I believe it's all ant stoves for sure.

The wall has gotten a bit warm with the weather cooling down and when I need to crank it up a few notches a radiant shielding is necessary. I felt that a period stove may need a period reflector so here it is. With this installed the wall is now cold behind the screen. Now to find something to hang the tools on!
PTL and pass the coal

The shield looks great and the stove looks like it is happy.

I want the rocking chair.

Thank you,and I believe the stove is happy.
When things warm up I will work on the "tightness"
I liked your comment on the disconnection in society with the "square vent" in the wall statement.

Oh the rocker can't have it. Got a picture somewhere of gramps sitting in this chair listening to the news when my father was in Burma 1943

Wow the rocking chair is very special then. It looks perfect near the base burner. I want one to put by my Glenwood.

You have copies cast from the wings you have. What are you going to do with the stove?
