    In rare cases. For instance, the internal nu-tec converter worked decently in Buck or Squire type stoves.

    The external ones are probably too high up to do much good.

    I have an old one installed on a Classic stove in my shop. It is installed directly on to the flue output and there is no baffle. I have to get the stove hot, but it does lite off. On the other hand, the stove burns pretty clean with it open and I have to burn the stove hot to heat the shop. I do use a bit less wood when it is engaged. It is a 6 inch round add on that is directly at the output of the stove.
