    On a parts list for the Vigilant 1A I see a set of Andirons. These bolt on. Could someone explain what they are used for and where they bolt. Are these actually for this stove, they are not in diagram? Thanks

    I thought they were stock - but if not, they simply make it do that you can pile wood higher with the doors open - or keep it back from the doors a bit if loaded from the top, I remember selling them....so maybe they were an option....

    Those are all likely for those andirons....they fit a couple of the older models.

    I don't see any need at all to have andirons in a Vig.
