    Looks really good!

    I haven't even plugged my new stove in yet. Temperatures around here have been in the 90's and humid. I figured I would christen mine sometime in September or October.

    Congratulations and good luck!!

    Hello

    I would still recommend atleast one support strap in this case. If the stove is disconnected for service, then there would be undo pressure exerted on the venting that could cause damage to it.

    The 4" diameter strap extends to 5-1/2" from the wall to the center of the pipe. There is however an extension to extend it another 5-1/2" max. So this would probably do it.

    The last pic shows the extension install with the plumbers plate that I have done.
    You can paint the plate and straps black before the install for good looks. I also recommend 2-1/2" wood screws to get the plate into the wall studs securely. Let me know if you need any of these parts.

    I also like to use washers and lock washers on these support straps. It just makes a much more secure job!

    It's on the floor next to the stove. 1000W SmartUPS with pure sine wave and ability to compensate for spikes and partial power loss. Should give me 2.5hrs back up. The manual said that the worst thing that can potentially cause the control board to die is a sudden loss of power.
    Batman made a call to Commisioner Gordon for me. He owes me a favor for fixing his bat light. The surge protector police won't be bothering me anytime soon.==c

    Thanks. I turned the swamp cooler on to 68::F and the stove to 86::F setpoint. That kept the indoor temp at 80 while I burned for 4hrs to get the excess paint burned off and check for leaks.

    There is a shroud clamped around the tee in the pic below. Should it be taken off to put on the support bracket or left on?

    That is interesting, You would not need the shroud with the support bracket. Therefore it should be taken off.

    Hey good luck with the new stove. I have a Palazzetti a very close cousin to your stove and it's great. Great job with the install;)

    Hey Phil, the literal translation for the name of your stove is cousin.:) Your stove and Lake Girl's is what inspired my search for this type of stove. Once I knew they existed it was only a matter of time before I'd have one of my own in the house.

    Enjoy the efficiency also. My stove ran for more than a month longer this year, we also had an increase of 300 heating degree days and I still used less pellets than the previous season;lol

    Looks like its been two winters since your Piazzetta install. We're considering the same model (great deal from a dealer who has a returned Sveva with the Majolica - only 10 hours of use!). Quick question - how warm does the cladding get? I'm guessing only the front glass gets really warm, but wanted to get a real life answer. Tiny kids are the reason for the question.

    Nice work on the ash snorkel. Speaking of which....anyone remember the dude that told us we couldn't make vacuum clean outs on our clean out T's because we would be violating his patents? He didn't stick around long. his name was Steve if I remember right. Good job!

    Majolica on the Elena gets warm but not hot like the glass and metal. With little folks, may want to put up temporary guard around the stove. Not as aesthetically pleasing but keeps little fingers safe.

    The frame builds for the Ravelli(ecoteck) and the piazzetta look almost identical.
