    After years of "lurking" I finally joined and have a question, LOL!

    I recently rebuilt a Resolute stove that has the short leg kit installed for a fireplace insert. My question is if someone may have standard size VC legs that they are looking to unload or trade for the short legs, as the stove is going to be out in the open.

    I know I can also keep the legs, but is it recommended to have a heat shield on the bottom as it does sit low with these legs installed.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Advice is to have an installation pro look at it and tell you. If the stove sits on tons of solid masonry, does it really matter whether it's shielded or not?

    By the way, I DO have some standard Res,. legs to sell, $60.00 shipped TYD in the lower 48.
