Thanks everyone for the nice comments, Coalkirk is right, that is the brass trim kit I installed. Finially had a descent cold snap here; windy and 7 degrees, and the stove kept the whole house toasty
Titleist1, I have thought of buying one of those Fein Multimaster for some of the trim and tile work around the house but at this point I will probably have to stick with the dremel cutting wheel and a hammer and chisel! Got laid off from work so watching my pennies...but if anybody happens to see a great deal on one let me know! What the wife doesn't know might not
Euro-good job on that Keystoker!!! Redoing these stoves is a pain but it does feel good once they are back together and actually running well like a new one. One thing I ran into that surprised me; there is a cleanout slide under the feeder bin, where the air comes in from the combustion fan below the grates. Well, the slide was bent down on one side causeing a huge air leak through the cleanout so all the air from the combustion fan wasn't making through the grates. Something to look for if you notice your combustion fan doesn't effect the burning flame that much and you get a lot of unburnt coals in your ash. Once I straightened it out the stove was burning so much better and coal is now burning completely. Just something to look at when redoing these stoves.
