I have been lurking on this site for over a year now but I just used it to gain info I joined finaly because I am looking to buy a fisher woodstove something in the papa or mama bear size. my house is a little over 1000 sq feet and I have always like the older stoves. I have a vermont casting viglent and it is not air tight anymore and do not want to pull it all apart to do a full reseal. I was just looking for some pointers on what to look for when looking at a used fisher ie.. is there any parts that fail from someone abusing the stove. any help would be great.
