    You could fabricate a flat magnet attached to a rod that sits in front for the secondary intake. Upon over-fire just push it over the hole.. Ash pan might be in the way though.

    The diamond plate was just an idea and it turned out great. I was actually going to use a flat metal plate and paint it black. When looking for the material I came across a sheet of this aluminum diamond plate and thought wow, that would look great, and it would reflect all the radiant heat. I insulated the top of the plate with R30 fiberglass. The back of the plate sits on the top of the new layer of brick that was laid over the old. I intended to go one more layer high and make the block off plate level but the next row of brick would have interfered with the stainless liner so I stopped at that row. It made a shelf so the plate could sit on top of the last row of brick on the back and the front is attached to the brick lintel with two screws.

    I forgot the name of the hearth stone but it is a sedimentary rock as you can see the layers if you look close. I'll find out where its from and the name if you would like me to. I had the edges made round so they wouldn't be so fragile. The stone is porous so I sealed it with the best sealer I could find to protect it from stains.

    Heating Awesome! The stove is 80% in the firebox. The brick to both sides of the stove gets to about 250 to 300 degrees with a hot fire. It's some serious thermal mass to help heat after the fire dies down. The Hearth stone has a rough edge instead of a smooth edge. I have recently installed bamboo flooring and its going to be an interesting custom trim job to clean up the look.
