Some updates on the RUSH No. 9 I have redone some gaskets mostly on the lower side doors and front bottom of the pit door. These have helped in elininating leaks that allowed fresh air to enter and go up the flue. Now the air comes up though the grate and thus the fire. Burns much better!! :D I have found I also was shaking too much, now maybe a shake after several hours of burn. Still learning as I occasionally let it get too low and loose draft and die. The gasketts are a help. Also went to larger coal using Nut and Stove. Once I have a good fire I load the bin all the way and let it burn.. We still need to place ceramic tiles on the walls, you acn see two samples of some wood looking ceramics we like. :D Having fun staying warm on this snowwy day 29degrees outside. Hope to keep learning as I go.

Again, all I can say is that: you have one of the nicest stove we can find .
I like the squarish look of these stoves. As the time goes by, you will continue to appreciate the confort of the stove.

Beautiful little stove. I am partial to the appearance of this era of stove making. It is a tasteful stove with beautiful proportions. It will provide plenty of heat for you.

Congrats! The Rush is a beautiful stove. I strongly considered buying the Rush #9 at Barnstable Stove Shop last year. The look of these units are awesome and I have a strong feeling you and your family are going to love being around it on those cold winter days.

Congrats again!

It still looks like my Invader No2 with a fancier finial and chrome. I sold mine to my sons next door neighbor (well three doors down) in Hickory NC. He was going to install it but according to Adam (my son) it is decorating one part of his porch and he is getting bored with it once he learned it is a lousy wood burner and he was advised strongly not to even try. Next it will be a plant pot holder. This thread has reminded me how much I liked the look of that stove. Perhaps I will buy it back and actually install it this time. I will do this in my spare time (sarc on).

PS. called Adam who is coming up for Xmas and he will put it in the trunk of his car (real easy to do) - a simple text message and the return price has been agreed (lower than the sales price of course, I am being kind). This is in keeping with my life policies.... sell one, buy two. I mean guys you understand don't you I HAD to save it, didn't I? That is why there is so much junk around here.

If you have good draft you won't need to worry about sealing the doors. The old stoves are not air tight. That little stove will heat a surprisingly big area. I have a "cannon" stove that my Dad used. He'd burn it with the top door all the way open to give enough draft over top of the fire to control it. No fumes at all.
