    I have a Avalon model 700 wood stove insert but there are no panels. Does anyone know how to purchase a set of panels (inexpensively) or is there a way to make them? I will have to get rid of it if I can't get the panels. Thank you.

    i assume you mean surround panels?
    they can be made out of sheet metal, hire a heating and air company w/sheetmetal tools to build you one.
    we make our own custom panels onsite all the time, (good electric shears, a brake, and some paint)

    I've installed a lot of those without panels - it will heat better! Of course, you need to use a proper block-off plate up at the damper.

    It is easy to make up panels - you can even just cut some of that radiator screening to go around it once installed.
    Stuff like this - you can buy in hardware stores, etc.
