You won't have an issue with the baro being that close. Mine is closer on my Hearth stove than yours. (because of space restriction) and I have no problem at all. I'd recommend installing a mamometer to monitor the draft though. Back last March when I had it installed, the installer preset the weight to the .02 mark and said it would be fine. I noticed that the flap never, ever moved. I also noticed that I burned a lot of rice coal for being moderately warm that time of year. After researching the mamometer threads in this forum, I did the install. What a world of difference it made. With the draft set properly the house heats easily now, using less coal. I was sending too much heat up the chimney!

baro is a wee close to the stove but see how she works.

Looks to me like your ready to burn now. I would start putting small fires in it to "cure" everything and gradually increase it.

wait - what about the 'mantle too close issue' ? or did I miss something ?
as someone suggested a nice mantel protector would be fine - as I was reading a old dutchwest magazine from the late 80's (nostalgia in full effect) they used to sell nice mantle protectors with stand off.
I couldn't find any 'recent' offerings for them...but I haven't tried that hard.

Just an FYI....If I were you I'd coat the 4 bolts that attach the stoker assembly to the stove box with high temp (copper) anti seize. I don't believe this issue has been addressed by LL yet, but when you try to disassemble the stove next year to clean it, the bolts will seize and the nuts are welded in-between 2 layers of sheet steel. A few of us found out the hard way.

Hello all,

Just a quick note to touch base. My apologies for the time lapse, however, I am presently dealing with some life/family emergencies. Will try to post back in the upcoming week with photo and update. (photos are on the other computer.)

There seems to be a couple of quirks/bugs, but she is running, (idling mostly, in this weather). :roll:

Peace,
CC
(presently dealing with too much "creature" and too little comfort) . :rambo2: :evil:
