    EPA approved? Cat or non cat

    I'm guessing no on the EPA approval. Also guessing no on it being a cat or having secondary burn tubes.

    I thought it was a mine. It was part of a larger collection of furniture made from bombshells.

    Hmmm.... I guess this should have gone into the Picture Perfect section.

    I'm sure the clearances are pretty sweet. Also, looks to have a 6+ cu ft firebox. If this were a vogelzang stove, they'd rate it as a 1.2 million BTU output stove....

    Yeah, those are both old mines. The round window on the spherical one looks to be a for-real porthole...I recognize the closure hardware. Sure hope they switched out the original glass. Guy's obviously got better things to do than worry about something as boring as hearth protection. :ahhh: Rick

    Yeah, the one with the two porthole windows is my favorite. And yes, they are all mines as it turns out: http://www.marinemine.com/#minefurniture

    Yeah, I don't think these are exactly mainstream stoves that we're going to be discussing in detail...but they sure are interesting! I'll move the thread over to the Perfect Picture forum in a few minutes. Rick

    Where did you get the port holes from? I'm a scuba diver.

    I did not make the stoves. I just found the artist online. If you click the website of the artist that I posted it might say where he got the materials. Not sure, though.

    It's made by the elm stove guy. He got tired of being pigeonholed.

    I would love to use soemthing like that for a shop stove. Lots of navy history buffs around here since so many navy guys land here after retirement.
