Hello Gang awesome forum... I have acquired an old buck 2800.. awesome machine.. well so far its not installed lol... I had it sandblasted and repainted looks great.. I come to find I don't know squat about stoves,, my ideal was get it put it in the house and fill full of wood .. wow was I wrong,, Thanx to you great site I built a hearth(who knew) looks awesome.. I guess you cant just throw them on the floor huh?? I have found the manual on line and have read through a few times... any pointers about this stove, or any comments please let me know.. I have limited time with wood burners... when I was younger we had one that was vented out the glass window... And I deer hunt so I have a small stove in a small cabin... Thanx again!
