Thank you nortcan.

Well I got the stove unloaded and in the house today. Gonna take some time before I have it's final place in the living room ready for it.

I took some more pix while it was out of the wagon. Unloaded it by myself with the aid of a half sheet of plywood as a ramp down from the back of the wagon to an old wooden drawer, then down to hand truck level.

For anyone who's still wondering how the base chamber of a base heater is constructed, the second picture is looking in through the ash drawer door opening.

You can see the two rails that the grate rack slides in on. Once in, there's a narrow cover that fits in front of the rack with holes for the two middle grate bars that do the grate shaking. A tab swings down on either end to hold the cover in place. It takes less time to pull the rack out and put it back in then it did to type about doing it.

And you can see down into the lower flues through the square opening provided in the base under the ash drawer for cleaning the flues.

The vertical baffle in the middle back of the base chamber extends up to meet with the baffle in the back pipe. That's what separates the flues as the flue gases travel down one side of the back pipe, into one side of that bottom chamber, around that baffle and back up the back pipe to go out the stove pipe.

There's a damper at the top of the stove pipe to send the flue gases either down to the base chamber (indirect mode), or directly to the stove pipe (direct mode). There's a square cast iron cover that drops into the ash drawer base to close up that flue clean-out hole.

The last picture, you can see the plate-steel bottom pan that Wilson is now making for these. It should be a bullet-proof solution to the original cast iron bottom pans that sometimes crack.

Paul....is it safe to say the base chamber is the heaviest part of the stove?. What would you guess it weighs??.

Pancho,

With the firepot attached, yes the ash drawer (with the base chamber) is the heaviest.

I would guess that the ash drawer and firepot, with the back pipe base, striped of all loose parts, is about 120-130 pounds. I can just barely lift it off the floor an inch, or so. Not sure I could do the same if it was from a #8.

The barrel, striped of loose parts, with door frame, top, and the back pipe dome, is only about 40 pounds. The grate bars in their rack is close to that.

After we removed all the loose parts, it took Wilson and I both to lift the barrel, firepot and ash drawer off the base (the part with legs) before he unbolted the barrel from the firepot.

Just this one. :D

He's NEPA member, "wilsons woodstoves". He drops in almost daily - you can look him up through the members list to pm him, or just click on his screen name to get to his profile page to pm him. He's contributed to a number of threads. Try the "Cookin' with coal" thread about his kitchen ranges on page 24.

Paul,

What kind of chimney are you going to hook the #6 to?.

Pancho,
Brick - that goes up through the center of the house.

The base heater will be in the living room near where there are several doors that lead to the rest of the first floor and two stair cases that end at either end of the long upstairs hallway. The only areas this stove won't reach easily are at the back of the house and those are heated by the kitchen range.

Wow. What a great replacement for the original. No corners cut there. The guys a pro. I also had the pleasure of seeing all that is Wilson's. The guys been balls deep in this stuff for a long time. It's just a shame that the rest of haven't been on board as long. :rambo:

I was talking about the base pan. I probably should of mentioned it beforehand.

Doug,
Wilson gets his business by word of mouth. He may be in the shop, or out getting another stove to rebuild. I'd recommend you pm him first and set up an appointment to make sure he'll be there.

If you get to the Rochester area, just north east of Snipatuit Lake, bring a compass and follow that. There's so much cast iron at his place it's the local magnetic north ! :D
