Took a nice little 240 mile round trip from my place in north central Mass to Lebanon NH today and decided to drop into Woodstock Soapstone. It was a perfect day for a ride. We stopped at the 4Aces diner before we got there as we arrived around noonish in Lebanon. The front door seems to be always open for visitors.. and the first room you hit is the show room. First time I had seen the Keystone in real life, they really are classy looking. Didn't take long before I found Jaime hard at work on his big flatscreen. The showroom isn't large but it is full of goodies! We also got the grand tour... Raw soapstone as it is mined. The R&D dept. The Union... apparently the most recent Prototype is off on a road trip someplace, but I can't remember exactly where, but I believe it has to do with some of the EPA testing. Looking inside the Union is like looking inside a very big cave! We finally found my stove. I loved that it had my name on the box. Since I had the scooter today I wasn't going to take it home... but Jaime wanted me to look at it. Pretty exciting!! This is my riding friend Mark on the left.. he doesn't burn but was very interested in the whole build process. Kinda' like Woodstove porn, ain't it?! Below is the test station used to emulate the final testing that happens for the EPA. The actual tests are done by a specialist company they contract with. This is a new machine they got for much of the casting work they'll do in house for the new Union stoves. So we had to run along.. I'll be back up there week after next with my tow vehicle, and a trailer and well get more pics of the pick-up.. I hope you enjoyed my trip report.
