    Well Everyone I bit the bullet and Bought a Regency GC60. I was so Upset the M55 got away, but Im really Excited about the stove. I am planning on picking up the stove tommorow morning.. As you will see in the pictures, the first one i pulled the paneling down, to see where all the electric wire is inside the wall. The Next picture, will be the plywood base. The third picture, I have concrete board down, and the tiles in place. I have some trim work, grout, and oak faceing to do on the hearth, as well as the chimmney. I will keep the pics rolling and updateing the progress. Thanks for all the help thus far in helping me to decide on a stove.

    Well thank you for the warm welcome to the forum. I picked up the stove this morning, and I must say to anyone buying a stove, its worth having the company deliver it, and setting it in place. Man was this thing heavy. We pulled it off the truck onto a trailer, and drove it around the house to the back door. No damage except the bottom of the feet might be scuffed a little from the concrete but you will never see it. I thought the dealer would clean it up since it was a display model, but its a little dirty, but not to bad. To my suprise after unwrapping it, a half full hopper of pellets. The only thing i see that makes me curious is the stove top is loose, and upon inspection 2 bolts are backed off half way, so I will call the dealer on Monday and ask them why they had the top off. This stove for being a display model is beautiufl and not a scratch on it. Tommorow I am going to grout and skirt the hearth with oak, so more pictures to come. Then I have to figure out the vent.

    Very nice indeed.
    In the bag of goodies there should be a T-stat, some tools, and a small tube of anti-seeze. The anti-seeze will stop the mixing/agitating rod from sqwealing, and is applied to the left side of the mixing/agitating rod where it fits in the support hole.
    If you are paying for an install than make sure that they set the damper with a mag test, and do not believe them if they say it is set at the factory because it is not.
    This needs to be done for the best performance of the stove, so unless you are very familiar with setting up stoves yourself you will need to have this done.
    When this stove is set up properly, and you get used to how the flame characteristics should look at optimum this stove will burn just about any pellet cleanly.
    I just started mixing in dried cherry pits, and I must say they smell nice and have added a bit of extra heat. Cherry pits are not cheaper than pellets, so not very practical at current price levels in my area, so I did this just for testing for future reference.

    Awesome stove, and good luck.

    I haven't found a good use for that tool, but I can highly recommend purchasing an automotive gasket scraper, and a small wire brush of some kind to clean the burn pot.

    Here is the gasket scraper thread:

    Well I called the dealer this morning to get some pipe. What he has I know alot of you do not like, but its duravent pro. I told him I have heard good things and bad things about it. He told me that they have had good luck with it, and If i want to wait awhile they can get me Selkirk pipe, but at alot more cost. Im thinking about taking the chance and using the duravent pro. He said they have done alot of installs with it, without many problems.

    Is this gonna be Direct vent (straight out)?

    Or are you gonna have vertical? If so, is it inside or outside?

    If its gonna be a Direct vent or if your going out then up, I would say Pellet vent Pro is fine. Just make sure to use High Temp Tape (or silicone). I used just tape on my 4" system in the basement. Doesnt look bad.

    If your not gonna see the pipe inside, it shouldnt matter much. But if your going up and then out (looks), you may want to ponder....

    If you have the intention of burning mutli fuels other than just pellets than make sure the venting is approved for this.

    Corn or cherry pits etc are more corrosive and need a multifuel grade piping.

    I used ICC brand EXCELPellet which is approved for multifuels and has gaskets, so is pretty leak resistant.

    Do yourself A favor and get the ICC Pipe, I put my stove in in early January and chased smoke smell for a month I used silicon and metal tape on all the joint's and the duravent still leaked!!! I switched out to icc pipe and all my isues went away instantly.

    +1 on this, or should I say +2, for the installer of my Insert used ICC pipe, and I did my own install for my Enviro Maxx with ICC pipe without any leaks. The only silicone sealant that was used was at the stove adapter, as always. Metal tape, who needs no stinkin metal tape? ;-P

    As noted ICC is designed and approved for mutlifuel use as well.

    Pellet vent Pro is also Multi Fuel rated vent..

    I have 3 Pellet vent Pro systems. One 4" that did need High Temp Tape on the clean-out T and also on both ends of the 90° up top (4 seams). But......

    I also have Two 3" systems that dont leak and have no other means of sealing (RTV on adapter of course), other than the seals within the vent. One is direct vent (but doesn't go straight out, couple 45°'s inside) and the other is set up the same as the 4". It has clean out T, 5' vert, 90°, and then a few feet horizontal.

    So, I cant say they are terrible. But, it is known to leak. One of mine does. Two dont.

    I wondered how you did with your smoke issues, Cletus. Glad you figured it out.

    Brokenwing, I have to agree with the others on the pipe brand. ICC excel pellet is very good and easy to work with.
