    Don't know how to do that. But I like the Tile Fire too much to want to see the rest of that stove. Was it pulled out of a landfill, or what?

    Tiroloca,

    about 20% of IntensiFires have gone into Tile Fires or Sherwoods, it makes a dramatic difference to these stoves as the original design is pretty ordinary.

    To make the conversion you just lose cut the damper out and fill the hole with a bit of exhaust cement. The internal baffle has to come out though and that really takes a gas axe as they are welded in. That baffle arrangement is a dog to clean out, often I hear from people that have them completely choked up with ash.

    They seem a pretty well made stove though.
