About you burning time, I have the same thing arriving with the G.B. if I don't shake it enough, so there is less space left for the full refill. What I do is to dump just a few pounds of anth on the fire, wait a few minutes(2 or3), then shake it down. When you get used to your stove, you know when the shaking is correct and gives you the space for the fuel needed for a 12Hrs burn. The G.B. has a 9" Diam. only so the space for the fuel is important for a 12 Hrs + burn time.
nortcan wrote:Randy, what is the fire pot's diameter of the stove? A good thing about small mica is the price, smaller is cheaper and a 12" X 12" would cost a lot of $$$.
Good luck with your nice stove and keep on sending photos.
Salutations to you down there from the North

Maybe start with ???supposed 75% covered and if not enough air, just cut and remove more gasketting to admit more air??????? As you see I love rope gasket

The spring has to be just long enough to apply tension but not long enough to accidently throw the door open. Could also be done with a leaf or clock type spring with a hole in the center over the screw. Let me know the size of that screw and i will see what I have to make up and send you if you can't find anything.
