Hello all, downstairs in my basement i have a Vermont Castings Defiant stove. It is not used and has been there since i bought the house. It was hooked to the same chimney as the furnace (as it was in the old days). The tag says safety inspection was 1980. It is a beast 8" flue and HUGE firebox. It has automatic draft control with the little flipper hooked to a a small piece of wire rope that closes as the stove temp increases. Neighbor says it used to heat the entire house no problem, and i dont doubt it! Anyone still running this jewel!!??
