Hi Guys! So, I finally got my stove installed and all set. Thought I would share with everybody what I did. We had an old Arrow Stove that came with our house when we bought it. Last year we used it and it did well but the upstairs did get a little cold at times. When I inspected at the end of Summer, I noticed it needed a few things repaired and decided I could probably do better on the stove end of things. So the search began. I looked into many stoves, but I finally found an old Hearthstone 1 that was in really good condition about an hour away from where I live. The stove was in an office building and hadn't been used for 10+ years. The owner had bought the building and immediately installed an oil burner. He used the stove as a Stand for a Printer! He was only asking $600, I bought for $500 and sold the old stove for $350. So far so good. Only $150 plus a $20 U-Haul Trailer to get it home. Our interior Chimney looked bad. Stuff had dripped down the side and in general it just didn't look nice. I wound up painting the Chimney with a High Heat Hammered Bronze paint. I pulled the Old Thimble out and started from Scratch. I found a company here in Maine that makes Custom Stove Pipe called Thomson and Anderson. They were the Stove Pipe Supplier for Jotul Stoves for when they first came to the US and they made a Way More Sturdy Old School Style of Stove Pipe that is very high Quality. There website is here: http://www.intergate.com/~thmpandr/index.html. They Make Really cool elbows that are not rounded, and they do custom work. I wanted my stove to be able to sit back as close to the chimney as possible and not be out in the middle of the living room floor. They custom made a stove outlet Oval to Round Piece (Drum Elbow). It allowed the Stove to sit back further and lets the stove pipe go straight up instead of out of a normal 90 Degree Elbow. Next was getting a New Hearth Set-Up. Looked around and finally decided on a Granite Slab. Got an awesome deal on the slab, $250 Out the door. Needed a New Secondary Pipe and Gasket Kit. Ordered them from Jim at Evergreen Hearth and Home in Ellsworth, ME. Jim was very nice and super helpful as he knew the Old Hearthstone 1, 2 and 3 Stoves from being in the business a long time. Very cool guy and is a Hearth.com member. I took the Stove Doors off and cleaned and re-gasketed the glass and the doors. Painted the front screens with high heat black. Installed the new secondary tube with hearthstone soapstone furnace cement. After Cleaning out the stove with a compressor and shop vac we were ready to do the 1st burn. Man, that stove retains Heat for a LONG Time. I woke up the Next Morning and the Stove was still hot to the touch after burning all night. It puts out a smooth warm radiant heat that put all of us in the house to sleep. I really like the way the fire looks from the front. The glass they put in is frosted kind of and it makes the stove look spooky as the fire dances around. So, here are a few pix of what it looks like installed. Thanks for the help on here guys!
