I was thinking of buying a Mark II but had a few questions. From doing a search on the forums it seems like you want to measure about 12 inches from the stove?. I would only be able to insert the probe about 8" from the stove. I have a adjustable 90 degree pipe from the stove than my baro. Would it still work at 7" to 8".Also you would take your reading and set the Baro when the stove is at full burn? .Your basically looking for a draft of .04 when at full burn i presume. Thanks

Sounds good. I'm just trying to get the most out of my stove and wanted to do this and a fresh air intake also. Thanks for the help..

Yes, full burn, that will create the maximum draft situation and adjust the baro accordingly.

Like he said, as long as it's before the baro, anywhere in the pipe should work. My Keystoker has a hole in the ash pan door and I checked the draft there and then just drilled/tapped a hole in the side of my stove to hook it up and it read the same.

The stove should be under a slight vaccum with the draft of the chimney, so it shouldn't matter much where the sensing point is wether in the pipe, stove, door, etc...they shouldall read very close, if not the same.

Here where I put mine thru the side into the firebox, since Ihave a direct vent stove, my pipe is pressurized, so I have the sensing point in the stove somewhere.
