Don, how about a sealed lid??? what stove is that? FYI. I saw you called a few times today, sorry, I was busy.....send me a PM
That is alot less dumb than putting plastic Delron bushings around the Auger! I saw a Hopper fire that completely disintegrated the plastic bushing. Nothing left!
Magnum and Pelpro both do it in all their stoves because unlike brass bushings they never need lubrication and do not wear out! They just disintegrate when there is a fire!
See pics here!
Took you long enough!
Yes, It does not have a sealed lid, it is a Enviro Meridian. Do you have a way of sealing the lids?
I saw you call me back but I could not hear anything?
Does adding the extra weight cause any problems with the auger/motor??

Don I have the answer for your hopper extension,
The base is cracked and I had to replace, was gonna make a chimnea out of it (it did take good size logs) you can use the tank. It's noncombustable and will hold a bag of pellets. Yours free, come and get it!!
sorry not the right color and may crack easily. LOL
What a crappy idea.
Well i have seen worse ideas haha
Hopper made of wood! Remind me of those cartoons showing someone having made a "wood stove" from wood.
My Napoleon has a hopper extension that allows me to load the stove with almost two bags of pellets. (all steel).
So what is wrong with a Wood Stove Made From Wood? LOL
They still make them in Northern Argentina!
See link and pic below!
what an awsome idea! this inspired me to create a whole bunch of other things out of wood instead of the bothersome clunky steel. I made this really cool fireplace ash bucket out of plywood. it looks so good on my wood deck out back.
next i'm changing out my ugly metal pellet vent for this nice new one i made of some old hollow logs i found.
be right back i smell something burning...
On here in other threads.
Around town, Some of the things i have seen since i started working here amaze me!
I am skeeeered.
As you should be.
I understand someone has a nice mahogany spark bucket to hang from horizontal vents to prevent sparks from starting grass fires.
BTW did you ever get that Harman cleaned up and running again? It is a shame what some people do to their stoves.
Did my best on it. Really was not to bad just scary to look at.
You can get steel sheets smaller sections at most hardware and diy stores. as far as corners some thin angle iron will work, same source, pop rivet together-steel rivets as far as seals same stuff used by the mfg of the stoves sandwiched between the edges. Lid area can be constructed the same way. Aluminum will melt if a hopper fire. There are codes to be held to, Insurance co. like to quote codes as a reason for nonpayment.
Here are my hopper extensions I built out of 20gauge sheet metal. First one is on my Quadrafire Castille, (family room) Second is on my St Croix Peppin.(basement) Best things I've done, burn close to 36 hrs. on Medium heat. If anyone has either stove I'd be happy to share my plans with you, if your not able to you can easily find a sheet metal shop and they can fabricate them for less then $50 or so.
Yep those look nice and I'm sure they work, the only thing is they are not a listed component of either of your stoves and that can cause issues.
