    Hello,
    We are buying a house that has a Thompson wood burning stove with gnomes on the feet. It is missing the top. Does anyone know where I might find a replacement or where to start looking? i have included a picture if that might help.

    Another idea is to use a painted "end cap" made of stainless steel which fits.

    You can get these custom-made if a stock unit does not fit.
    See enclosed for an example:

    Is that cap cast iron, or steel? If it is steel, you could take it to a welding shop and they could weld a circular plate on top. Get the welders to sand it down real smooth and paint it with high temp black muffler paint, it would not look bad.

    That is a good looking little wood stove I hope you can get it fixed up.
