    Jags and all his followers.....

    As you know from prior posts, the new Sirocco 20 is really taking up a great deal of production time. Sales are superb! I can't divulge too much here but suffice it to say we have three projects under way and expect to make annoucements of at least one by end of October. Shortly there after there will be a couple of additional units.

    Sorry Jags, no 4.0+ cu/ft fireboxes in the plans right now. As you all know from the posts on Hearth.com, firebox sizes are shrinking because the size of the firebox plays a role in emissions formulas.

    I think we need a monthly round table where you dyed in the wool guys can stop by the factory, eat some fresh salmon and share stories. No cameras will be permitted!

    True. The idea was to preheat the combustion air. There is an air box in the flames with tubes running down to the burn pot. I was trying to burn low quality fuel (turkey crap) without visible smoke. Even with the heated air there was some smoke when burning turkey litter. That thing would burn good fuel like crazy, but so will a lot of other units.

    This photo was early in the project. Later four more air drops were added and the heat shield was installed to concentrate the heat on the air box.

    So, what you're saying is; clearances are going to be a problem?

    Its good to know that you guys are rock'in. You obviously have a superb stove lineup with proven Alien Technology that covers the needs of many. And man, I wish I could take you up on the fresh salmon (self proclaimed food whore, here).

    But I gotta say...you already have a 4.3 cuft box...........>>

    And as to the fire pic:

    ...as opposed to a forced air furnace, this new patented technology, "forced flame" ducts the actual flame into each room of the house. Imagine the ambiance provided by the warm glow of flames shooting out of the registers in your home.

    Don't worry honey, I've taken care of the bug problem. BTW if the inlaws ask about anything missing, nobody ever seen it.

    This just caught my eye and I'm a little concerned. I understand a 4.4 cu ft firebox isn't a huge market, but large fireboxes in general are still needed. I have two 3+ cu ft stoves. How much do you see fireboxes shrinking in the future?
