Thanks for all the info an the Fisher stoves. I'll have to measure this one to determine the model. As you saw, I angled the baffle as well, it just seemed like a good idea. I didn't want to go too close to the front or the combustion would spill out into the room when we opened the doors. I don't see any welded brackets for the baffle inside the stove, could be the baffle rested on the angle iron that holds the firebricks. There were probably a lot of minor changes made in the stoves by the different companies that made it. I'm going to clean the spec plate to see if I can get more info off of it. I have the viewing screen for it. All I can say is this is a very heavy stove. I got it around 1994 or so and we had a hell of a time moving it. I'm not planning to replace it, it is good for what we use it for. The Harman is in the dining room, on cold days the living room gets chilly, esp. since it's on the north side of the house, a nice wood fire warms the room up, and my wife likes to open the stove up and use the screen. Before I got the stove using the fireplace was I great way to get every room but the living room cold, it's so large that I had to get a huge fire going to get some heat! The sides of the fireplace have diamond plate steel, you can see where there were heat vents, but inside the space I could see the inside of the exterior of the house. Lots of cold air. I made little covers to fit inside the vents. The filler panels on the sides of the stove are about 1" short on each side, I get cold drafts out of there too, I have to close that up as well. So many projects, so little time, so tired!
Thanks again for taking to time to write all that info.
