Thank you Wiz, it was a labor of love bringing her back to life.

Make a few small fires at first to, 1. Cure the paint. It will fill your house up with stinky fumes and smoke for awhile, then it will go away. 2. You must heat up the new lining in the fire pot slowly so the latent moisture in it can boil out. A slow fire will allow the clay to harden and cure.
I understand the lust for a baseburner or the lack of an indirect back pipe on your stove, BUT get your stove fired up and you will fall in love with her for what she is and that is a awesome pc. of American heat making History!, you got yourself a GREAT stove and with a MPD in your exhaust pipe she will make great, comfortable, affordable heat that you will never want to be without ever again!
