I do have my AnthraKing AK110 crankin' in the house and I love that stove, it's making it for now as of course with a 7000' leak box to heat it will be outclassed some day. A little Jotul 507 in the study to amuse me and an extra brand new AK110 ready for when it gets real bad that I have never even fired up yet - I hope it works. There are technical reasons why a single AK220 was not considered. Somebody had to pay for Dave's arsenal . I pray for the Chinese military if they ever try to take Berwick . Last winter did not count as a winter around here so I never even tested it out. I am very happy with my heating system but of course all this is small time stuff compared to your output.
Trust me coalnewbie my ability to purchase my toys comes mostly from being frugal in the past, and my wife works as well. We are not getting rich from anyone especially with all the corporate BS we have to pay for. Not counting raw material prices. It will be a while before the R&D and testing is paid for. If anyone wants to buy at double retail price that would help.
