    Hi everyone! I am pretty new at wood burning stoves and I actually just got a Waterford Fionn to install in my small house from a buddy. I have been doing tons of searches but couldnt find the information I need. I recently started cleaning up my stove and getting it ready for installation. When I removed the back heat shield I noticed the rear air valve is missing and the arm going to the front of the stove.

    My questions are:

    Does anyone have any links to these parts used? I checked with how much they are new and it looks to be about $200 without shipping from Ireland.

    Can I just fabricate a valve out of steel since the stove is Cast?

    I basically want to be able to turn down the stove so it can slowly burn while I am away at work and then open it back up when I am home, correct me if I am wrong but if this air valve is missing then the fire will burn quicker throughout the day.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Kyle

    EDIT: I just saw this was moved into the PRE-EPA Thread, the stove is actually EPA certified and was built according to the manufacture stamp in 1992.

    Thanks, yeah I have contacted them and they directed me to speak with their distributors. Their distributors are the ones who told me about $200 for the parts prior to shipping. The parts are pretty simple and straight forward I believe. Its only a plug with a gasket on a rocker hooked up to an arm that extends to the front of the stove. Pull to open and push to close. Pretty simple. But I would much rather have the original parts to put back into it.

    Thanks again
