    Hi folks,

    I just wanted to show my appreciation for all of the great info that you all have given to me here at The Pellet Mill by following-through with my word on posting pics of my setup.
    I purchased a Hearthstone "Heritage" pellet stove early this Summer and had it installed this past September. I picked-up some GREAT tips and ideas since that time while here on the message board, including how to put together a pellet cleaner. I made one today, took pics of it as I went through the process of fabrication and assembly, and figured I'd take pics of my pellet stash and stove for you while I was at it.

    Hope you all stay warm and stove-trouble-free this upcoming Winter.

    Here's the link to view my photo album: http://imgur.com/a/CAnej

    Best regards,
    Steven

    Looks like a nice set up and cozy at the same time, look at the stove and then out the window at the snow, and back at the stove with a good feeling.

    Ya, nice looking setup. Very nice handy work. Scary clean and tidy garage!

    Curtain kinda close though.... maybe its just the angle.

    That is one very neat setup. You should be toasty warm this winter, and saving a few bucks. I have no idea what oil cost there, but here, it is way too much. We first burned pellets in 2008. I bought my set up with some cashed in leave time so no real out of pocket cost seen. We started saving right away. As to that sifting for pellet fines, I did that at first, but later found that my stove really didn't have any issue with them. When I clean out the hopper, I do find the fines around the pellet intake. I usually scoop them up and use them in the hopper when I start up the stove. If you haven't found out yet, keep a vac running when you do any cleaning of the burn pot or inside of the stove. You will keep the dust down to a min. that way. Do you have a surge protector on that stove plug? If not, get a good one. It may save you a very expensive repair.

    Thanks for the kind words. The chest is something we've had for a few years now and believe it or not, it's been empty all this time. Now it has found it's purpose. :)

    Love the pellet chest and grain scoop. I suddenly have the urge to ditch my drywall buckets and get a nice pine chest.
