I talked my friend Jamie into buying a used stove the other day. It is a Buckstoves model 81 that he bought for 750 bux. I didn't go with him to pick it up because of schedule conflicts. I wanted to see what I talked him into and finally today I did. Wow, what a nice stove! A tad rough on the stove top because they apparently let water over boil on it, no biggie. There were no signs of over heating and it came with a new thermal blanket for the baffle. I am going to have him get some other material for the baffle which we can get from a fellow who works at a steel mill. This has a steel plate then the blanket on top. The plate was warped so we straightened with a little persuasion.....we jumped up and down on it Long story short, we went and bought a liner kit for 450 and stuck it in the hole. We did not buy the insulation because his chimney was in very good shape and it is centrally located. Funny when we were putting the liner in you could feel the heat blowing up the stack really well! So here's the pix..
