The top hat folds back on hinges to reveal a hole that must be for placement
of small pots.
I wish mine came with hinges, but the top of mine has to be lifted off the stove... but where would you put a scorching hot 20lbs piece of iron?! So it stays on all the time & I don´t ever use my second hot plate!It is surprisingly heavy to be so small. My guess is the weight to be
90kg or 200 pounds.
That sounds reasonable, mine is approx. 260lbs without the doors, grates and the dome-shaped top... they were built to last, not like todays trashy products that fall apart after 5-10yearsIt is difficult for me to search german language internet for Felix so I would
appreciate if you could google for Felix41 to see if you find anything.
I´ll see what I can find, but don´t expect too much - antique stoves are not "en vogue" in Germany because of our tight environmental legislation...Another thing about these tall skinny stoves, It makes me think that
these stoves burn hot much like the recently popular ROCKET stoves
that are being spread throughout the world because they are so
efficient at burning the smoke very well.
I see one obstacle to perfect combustion of wood: there is no secondary air on these small stoves... so all your combustion air travels through the fire - I am affraid the volatiles require more oxygen OVER the fire to burn off propperly. but that´s just guessing!
I´ll see if I can find anything on your stove
