    :grrr: I am new to the forum and new to wood heating. We just moved and there is a insert in the fireplace. The tags have been painted over and I can't locate any type of ID on it anywhere. I hope someone can tell me what this insert is and how best to operate to get the longest burn time on our wood.

    Looks like a Buck knock-off. Don't know though. There were a lot of them back when that one was built!.

    Get some xylene or other paint remover and wipe the tag off. THey're usually stamped so you'll still beable to read it.

    AH Ha!

    Now THAT is a SQuire Stove - Squire Insert! I sold a heck of a lot of those babies. Blower is in a slip-out drawer underneath.

    The damper did say Squire - but that was a small insert which might have feel off.

    Anyway, that is the closest I can get. Squire by Cox Manufacturing -

    The slanted piece is the damper handle. I took the tag off and cleaned the paint off. It reads: Caution! may be hot while in operation. May cause severe burns! Do NOT touch. Danger! FIRE!

    THANKS! Now I just need to research and figure out how to make my wood last a little longer. Thanks for the help. I've learned alot already. BTW, any original fan motors laying around? The motor was making some noise, so I got the replacement. It is an inch taller, so the diverter plate on top doesn't fit right. Now the fan will shut down when it should be running. I'm looking at a way to alter the plate and make it fit.
