    Check out the venting on this...did it really vent like that?? Or have they stuck the cap on sans piping??

    I know there were unvented space heaters back in the day, but I thought the parlour style stoves were all vented...

    Too bad it's missing the mica windows.

    i'd never use it un vented! and i'd never trust a b-vent unit w/o a spill switch
    looks like it could take oval b-vent piping

    I wouldn't either...but I was wondering if it was actually meant to be. It looks like it all fits together so well, but it seems all wrong at the same time.
