I have used tapcon bits before in concrete with no problems.
I do use a hammer drill though..makes a huge diff.
And your smart to ask questions!
People that are away from the situation often see things that we miss that should be obvious!
Well they are saying you can't use or sell the ones that didn't make it if I read it right.
Will be fines and what not.
I mean are they going to want...
Could you drill the holes a little bigger and use some type of insert for the screws to grab?
LOL..i have the same deal with the glass!
I could run the stove though with just the two temp gauges I have..did it on my old stove for years with a...
That hole might be ash dump.
Probably don't need to block it..seems I read on here that some even hook up their intake air to it?
I don't know but...
Well talk to the stealers..opps I meant dealers and get back to us!
It was my 1st choice actually because i was not sure if this cat stove would do what they said it would.
The Liberty is sure better looking also.
Heck my glass gets dirty easy but my pipes stay pretty clean.
How do you like that Liberty?
That was my second choice.
Well it could be done ..all it takes is time and money! lol
How big is the room..and for that matter the whole house?
1 or 2 story?
I take it you can't see the cat looking up into the window?
Really looks nice and warm!
Like it a lot without the surround like you did!
Try to talk to at least two different dealers if you have them close by.
I truly believe you would be better off with a free standing stove..you have...
You might be able to put a pellet stove insert in there and use a through the wall pipe. I don't know but might be something to look into if you're...
Looks like a cat by-pass lever on the right side of his stove?
Not a BK though.
Might be a older Englander?
For 14 years I ran a BK non-cat without a glass door..wonder how I did that..lol.
This cat BK almost makes me want to go back to a steel door!
A upstairs window open can actually cause it by pulling on the intake air.
It would be cheaper,faster just to close that up and get a free standing stove and run the pipe up through.
Would also heat better without fans....
Water is a by-product of burning wood.
That said very seasoned wood will only have 10-20% moisture content to begin with but that does not mean a...
Yea,with the record player and am-fm!
I like it though!
Still not sure why it can't be used as a free stander?
I have no clue though as to what the...
You don't have to put a surround up..maybe just a block off plate up in the chimney?
Are you going to use a liner?
Well that is not going to happen...and your opinion is your opinion about contributing.
I have said both types of stoves have their place.
A big old...
I don't follow what you're saying.
What I'm saying is the buddy of mine does not bring his stove up to a temp to where the secondarys kick in during...
Don't worry so much about the creosote..but do check your flue now and then of course.
People do burn tube stoves lower in the shoulders without the...
If anything you might get away with single wall pipe for some heat scavenging . That's what I run and seems to be fine.
The floor looks great!
On the wood ..it would be better yet to have the rows single..but I understand space maybe a factor.
Well then I would be wrong right along with you. lol
