nice! hey that baro weight is on the Horizontal side of the flap, right?
it looks like it is but the "H" stamp would confirm it
Thanks for the warm welcome folks!
Yes the baro weight is on the correct side and it was adjusted with my Bacharach draft gauge via a hole on the opposite side of the pipe just aft of the stove outlet.
This year I purchased 7200 lbs of Blashack nut from Squire Lumber for $1074 all in, not bad IMO.
I plan to cut a hole in the ceiling in the room the stove is in to help get more heat on the second floor.
Last season I would shake and load the stove 3 times a day, in the morning, when I got home from work and before bedtime.
This resulted in easy 12 hour burn times with the draft open 1 turn running at about 550 deg and an average of 1 40lb bag a day.
After this years run I think I'll have the necessary experience to modify my exhaust stack to include a MPD before the Baro damper, just to see if I can further the stoves efficiency...but that's for another famous thread...LOL!
Also I had to replace all the fire bricks as they were all cracked, don't know if I had caused this somehow.
Can't wait to fire her up again soon.
