Hello there! Im new to the forum and new to coal burning. I have an estate heatrola that my grandmother has given me. It has been in her barn for a long time, but it is in excellent condition. every thing works on it except for a piece of the chimney extension on the top of the stove has deterioated from the top. Now im not a expert on this , but it seems that i could stil use it by manufacturing another piece. Im not even sure if it is even part of the stove or chimney. I dont even know if i can get this part from some dealer. Here are a few pictures of the stove and the few issues i have with it. Any advice would help enormously. thanks, sseeley P.S I have no idea how to post my pictures

What model is your Heatrola? Check for a serial number tag on the back next to the flue outlet. I heated my entire house with a Heatrola last winter, they are good stoves.

If you can't get the pictures posted you can always send me a PM and we can figure something out, email or whatever.

One of the forum moderators will probably join this thread with the earlier one just so you know.

Looking at the photos it looks like the shielding around the outlet vent of the stove is rusty and has old burnt paint that's flaking off but the actual cast iron pipe inside the shield should be ok.

If you can take the stove pipe off and take a picture looking down at the chimney outlet of the stove maybe we can see if it looks ok. The more pictures the better.

My Heatrola had a gap in the same spot, I wondered if there was a gasket there at one time. I took the back section of that 90 degree bend off and reassembled it with furnace cement in the joint, that worked fine all winter. The bolt/screw that holds the elbow on is probably seized pretty bad, you don't want to break it off so be careful. If you don't feel like messing with that bolt just remove the stove pipe from that elbow and push some furnace cement through the crack from the inside and smooth if off when your done.
