Greetings, We just installed a stove that has been sitting at our mountain ranch for 20 or more years. I'm hoping someone also has one or knows a bit about them. The stove is a: Nordic Eric jr. made in Lovelock Nevada. The company is no more. I'll try to post a picture. It works well but I have a few questions. The stove has a metal plate. I don't have in it right now. I believe it should stand upright in the back of the firebox, in front of the 8" rear flue . The plate has a 1" right angle bend, I don't know if it was to be on top or bottom as the plate stands.
