    Im lacking a collar, or something, to go between the stove, and new stainless liner.

    DAMN this thing is heavy, sans firebrick, doors, all trim, outer panels, and ash tray, it was all my freind and I could do to carry it around the back of the house, and into the bottom floor.

    it has to be 250 lb plus stripped.

    my back hurts!

    hope to be warm soon.

    you can seem my home brewed rear mount electrical cord, and the new stainless liner hanging down in the pics.

    we debated going to borrow a 2-wheeler ( dolley), but decided we could forgo the 20 minute round trip, and just be "men"

    Men with sore backs and hands, and feeling VERY aged as it turns out.

    Im really hoping it heats the house.

    Previous owner just had glass doors and burned wood, and said it heated the house well.
    I think this should work.

    I think you'll see that it will heat that masonry chimney up and the entire mass will radiate heat.

    Be safe lifting it up onto the hearth!!!!

    Bend and twist right?

    :)

    I dread making that final connection and sliding it back, its tough to get hands in there to screw the stuff together.

    IM actually amazed at the lack of technilogical advancement in the flu/chimney plumbing and connections.

    slide together, and screw it in place.

    its not even as well engineered as LEGOS

    I guess it works, it just seems 100 or so years behind the times.
