    I'm having trouble lighting my woodstove - there is a strong downdraft from the chimney. I already have a downdraft cap on the chimney - do you know or sell any product that I can put in stove to pre-heat the stove similar to warming the flue? Right now I'm using my wife' shairdryer and she's getting sick of the soot in her hair!


    There are no products currently made for this specific purpose. I use a crumpled uppiece of newspaper shoved into the damper area...and lighting this usually does the job. Thanks- though- you've given me the idea for my next invention.
