We love photos on this forum !! Hint, hint !!
Since you started this thread about baseheaters vs indirect back pipe designs,, does your 'Oak' stove have an indirect back pipe?
Since it is labled an 'Oak', it should be a direct vent, and maybe there was an 'option' from that manufacturer for an indirect back pipe.?
Looking forward to seeing some photos.
Measure across the firepot, and the depth, if it's a big one, it should be 14" diameter or more inside the pot and probably 8"-10" deep.
I 100% agree with the suggestion to cast a new grate and line the firepot over the summer, so you will be preserving the stove for decades of use.
