Hi all! My name is Eric and I'm 30yrs old from southern nh, now living in dracut, ma. I own a fisher baby bear stove (B006 in side the door casting)the B I believe from reading the forum, is the patent and 006 being the 6th stove (correct me if I'm wrong please.) Great stove!! Magnetic Temp gauge located 2 feet up from the fire box reads 500. The door air control is best run at 2 turn open and the pipe manual draft control located 18" up from fire box I keep wide open to have minimal creosote build up. 6" stove pipe 4' feet long then elbowed into the wall with a 6" to 8" reducer into the chimney. I have tried adjusting to get a slower burn but fail miserably each time and the fire just burns out. I also Have n old mill stove down stairs in the basement (size equivalent to the mama bear) that is great but I don't fire it up enough to have the controls down pat. It either burns out or way over fires and I get nervous. So if I fire it up I have to stay with it. 6" flue pipe 4' long and thimbles thru the wall with 16' of double wall up the side of the house. Any tips to firing these two are appreciated!! Here are pics of the baby. I'll have to take pics of the old mill later tonight and I'll post them up.
