    If I ever got anything cherry red.... I think I would hang up my wood burning hat. :cheese:

    The 30 is more of a radiant heater.

    I have no wood-burning hats left. At one point or another, they all ignited when I got too close the glowing orange flue pipe.
    :eek:hh:

    I think he's comparing applies and oranges. His old stove sounds like a radiant stove, and his new one is convection. Comparing the surface temperatures and how hot it feels with your hand near them is a meaningless comparison. How warm it makes the house would be more meaningful.

    The stove he has is radiant. There is one just like it sitting across the room from me.

    Even with the second video being so dark, I still had to laugh with the leaning tower of flue pipe going on. Jealous of the sweet secondaries though...

    Enough of all this talk of wood and stoves. Why is he wearing a wig?

    Yep. The inside of this house looks like the Ice Palace in Dr. Zhivago. I just can't admit it because my pride makes me defend not spending more money for my stove. :red:

    Thanks for pointing that out, Kathleen. That was my first reaction upon visiting his web page, but I was too insecure in my masculinity to mention it. ;)

    Hiram--great catch on the new video. I note that he no longer has wood sitting on top of his stove. :-/

    If you are talking about ESW, they are 143 miles from my house. About a hundred and fifty six short minutes. Well, at my age more like three hundred minutes with restroom stops and trying to remember where I left the car in the truck stop parking lots.

    That will teach you for buying one of them crappy double walled heaters.
    They keep all the heat in, and send it up the chimney......lol

    There's something wrong with my Heritage. I can't get any part of it to glow red...

    I was watching the video on his page and my wife walked by and said "What the hell is that a picture of?"

    Try pumping in some bottled oxygen. Gets everything glowing just fine. You just might lose that "soft heat" effect, though.
