    I see. Given the combustor industry claims to be putting out better products now, it will be interesting to see if the EPA goes with one new number all stoves must meet, cat or noncat. That's is the way it should be.

    This is like having two different physical performance standards for firemen/policemen. The standard is much tougher for a male but somehow I don't get to choose who gets to drag my butt out of a burning building.

    Army's the same way, and I assume so are the other services.

    HehHeh . . . you should meet Firefighter Mel . . . she's not very tall, but she's like Mighty Mouse . . . on steroids . . . seriously . . . I think she could out lift and out perform over 1/2 or more of the guys here at our station.

    I'd be thrilled to have her pull me out. I am all for women (maybe my two daughters) doing these jobs with the emphasis on "doing" them. If you can't meet the standard, then you aren't doing the job. Sorry for the sidetrack, its a pet peeve of mine.

    More heat (bang) for your wood, and understanding the maintenance and concepts of clean wood burning for supplemental or primary heat a cat stove is better. The non cat stoves require less attention but still have their issues.
