    Congrats and welcome. I haven't heard of a model 3200S. Is this a Jotul or a Scandia stove?

    crosscut welcome to the forum. I am not familar with that specific stove, but I would be surprised if someone can't help you. This is a great forum for anyone, new or not so new, to woodburning. Use it and the many great people here to your advantage. Learn from the mistakes they have made, and the experiments they have tried. You will be amazed, just how much you THOUGHT you knew, but didn't.

    Again welcome and enjoy.

    Got it, my mistake, I was thinking Black Bear by Jotul. All I could find on the stove was this old hearth thread:
    http://hearth.com/econtent/index.php/QA_Templates/info/388/

    Neither heater is much to brag about. Be careful of leaks and runaway fires in these stoves.

    Note, galvanized vent pipe is for ducting, not for stove vents.

    Those old BlacK Barts have heated a lot of homes. And they are a beast. Be sure to not smolder the fire in that bad boy and keep that chimney cleaned including the smoke shelf in the fireplace. If you don't those suckers can bite you in the butt.

    yeah i have noticed about the basement the galvanized pipe and they put that over the actual vent pipe i guess... only used it 2 times since i moved in Nov 23rd... i am just surprised the one in the living room black bart still works and heats up the whole house... it does not leak nothing every thing works on it that thing is only 6 months older then me!! 30 plus yrs still works! the people before me used it every day.. i been starting to use it every day just in the day time when we are home and i let it die out around 10pm and close every thing up and let my furnace take over for the night had that new furnace installed 2 weeks ago and the wood stove was a nice back up when the old furnace died lol glad to learn more about these wood stoves...

    For the old franklin, a wire brush will take off most of the rust. Wire wheel on a drill works good too. (wear goggles). Then use some stove black to polish it up.
