Well I finally got my Century wood stove up and running. I had my break in fires and this thing really rocks! For a small inexpensive stove, I only have good things to say about it so far. Seems really well made, all straight and true etc. Burns great. Wood catches right away and even though I still am keeping the temp around 300-350, it throws a lot of heat. Much more than I had anticipated. The secondary burn is great to watch. I installed a SS Selkirk along with it. Cant say as much good things about that though. Seemed like they could have made the pipe/locking system better than they did. Seems like it would either lock and then come undone, or spin past the lock limit. I put locking bands on all the connection's except where the pipe meets the ceiling support box, as there is no way to put a band on that connection. And of course that connection was one of the ones that kept "undoing itself" so I just used 3 screws through the support box into the pipe. Aside from that everything went very well. I use coal for my primary heat in a Keystoker stove, and heat a second story mater bedroom with a lopi gas stove and have only really burnt wood in the fireplace and old airtight many years ago. After burning wood in a modern wood stove, I can see why you all like burning wood. Im hooked!
