    So to clarify: I was wondering if anyone has any experience with an externally mounted hot water coil on a newer wood stove.

    I know there are many who have installed internal coils by drilling holes in the stove. But I am not interested in these aftermarket internal coils for a new stove.

    I'd be interesting in checking out that option as well, NWB. The Napoleon 1900 has two recesses (one on each side of the stove) that are hidden by the decorative shrouding, that would be perfect to put an external water jacket on. I bet it would heat the water OK, but not as good as the internal piping. HMMMM....now you got me thinking.

    I think as long as the system was non pressurized it would be safe...not sure if you're talking about doing baseboard heat with it or what.
    You would need a pump.
