Yep, it's galvanized.
I've been playing with the idea of attaching some angle flashing as an attempt at a fix - I really hate to have to be doing something like that on stoves that each cost MORE than my parents first new car.
I suppose if the ash pans are made in China, I need to ask if the stoves were made in China as well. Here I've just been assuming that the coal stoves from Pennsylvania companies were one of the few things actually still made domestically.
Berlin, does the DS Machine have this problem as well? We tried to find an antique base burner, but no one had our size available now - the DS Machine was my next choice, but shipping times up here ruled it out.
Uglysquirrel, Pocono is another stove I haven't heard of to date. Does the Pocono not spill the ash? Do you know of any links that contain a listing of the active coal stove manufacturers? Or is there a list right under my nose on this site?
