It depends on how hot the stove is being operated at. These stoves can be safely and regularly operated up to 700 degrees as a normal thing. I rarely run mine over 500, but; when it is running that hot the base heating chamber gets several hundred degrees hot. I don't think it is a danger to a normally designed hearth, but; it is something to keep in mind.


I can't take my ash pan out without hot pad holders when I'm running in base burner mode (that's like all the time). Even if I'm running down low, the ash pan is to hot to hold. The other day I forgot to flip the switch to base burner mode and when I went to take the ash pan out, I could carry it to my ash dump with my bare hands. There is a very large difference between base burner mode and not...

Thanks Buck24,

I made a small amount of progress over this weekend. The wife is keeping me busy with Christmas things, work is actually very busy and taking alot of extra time, and the Holidays in general are making my time to work on the hearth very scarce.

I was able to get all the steel studs notched and cut for hanging the Hardi Board. I also got the pieces of metal installed for the trim in the 1" air gap areas at the top and bottom of the walls, and lastly I was able to get the Hardi Board installed on the walls with all the joints taped off. Next is the ceramic tile :) .

I received an email today from the plating company Chrome Black Lake that contains pictures showing the progress of my parts. I thought this was really cool that they took the time to take the pictures and send them to me in an email and I didnt even ask :up: so far it has been a great experience with the guys there and it looks like quality work ! Thanks for the reccomendation Pierre :D

I dont know the process very well for replating parts but they already look better than when i sent them out :lol:

I know you are excited. The parts look beautiful. Just think, all of the sudden there is going to be this big addition to your home. Even though you've worked on it and thought about it for a long time, when it all comes together it will seem like its all of a sudden.
Get used to the neighbors ogling it.

So it gets an initial clean, then sanding of old plating, then copper plated and are they scuffing the copper plating for the next phase of plating to adhere too ? What's after copper plating the nickel ? How many coats of nickel usually just one ?

The copper is like undercoating or priming when painting. It's thicker and done to "fill" imperfections and the nickel is the top coat. One plating yep, and then polished and sometimes (they used to) lacquer or some clear protector. You can tell on the old ones that had the lacquer as it would "yellow" a bit as it aged if not polished off over the years.

Makes sense, it didn't even cross my mind the copper was used like a primer, pretty cool process thanks.
