Thanks for the compliments.
Ok, I am looking at the stove more closely, now that is cleaned up. And I am seeing that the left and right sidewalls ( towards the front direction) are a double walled construction with pins used as a fixed reference for consistency during the fabrication. The rear sidewalls, presumably are where the air chamber is for the blower air movement (as seen where the blower slots are). My question for anyone, (Doug maybe), and my presumption is, why the double wall in the front ? ... because that front double wall volume is an open convective flow to the rear wall air blower chamber volume...? So the complete side, both front and rear are connected to the air blower volume. Why else would that front area of the sidewall be a double wall? Also looking at the interior fabrication, the inside has a weld seam at this front/rear sidewall junction, if that fact helps with any search of knowledge.
The reason that I am asking this, is that "IF" this is true, that the total sidewall is one complete air chamber for the blower, "using a blower would be more advantageous." thanks for any feedback, r
One more item of question, if this front sidewall double walled volume is connected or not connected to the blower air, I see that some have added a secondary air input at this area of concern. So I think this topic needs to be addressed, one way or another.
