Hello, new to the forum and I have some questions about a used stove I just bought. First off, it is a big two door stove all steel, it has a badge on it that says "Timber". It is a heavy duty stove but there are a few things wrong with it. I didn't notice it when I first looked at it but when I was loading it up in the trailer, I found a crack on the back of the stove running from where the stovepipe attaches down the back of the stove. The pipe is made for a 8 inch pipe. there is a shelf on the inside of the stove that runs even with the bottom of the flue pipe but this shelf, near where the crack is, has come loose from the back of the stove and it sags on that side of the pipe. I know pictures probably would help but at this point I am not too worried about that. I was just planning on taking this to a welding shop and having the shelf cut out and fixed, and then having the crack welded. I assume this will work and will not really cause me any grief since it is a steel stove. I also need to add some fire brick to it and there is no way to attach the bricks on the sides to keep them from falling, is this a problem? If so I will address it at the weld shop. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
