    After all of this craziness and head butts in this thread, I just want to thank the OP for the update on the new stove. I know you guys have put heart and soul in that puppy and I can't wait for folks to start burning in them.

    Congrats on an innovative piece of wood burning work.

    I definitely enjoyed getting to see the photos of the stove coming together! I would also be interested to hear how the air controls for the stove work, is the secondary combustion air controlled independently of the main air control or is there one air control that controls both the secondary and the main air for the cat/secondary combustion. I guess what I was trying to say is can it be operated with either just the cat or are the cat and secondary combustion always operating at the same time?

    I will never be able to have a Woodstock stove due to size limitations in my set up, but nonetheless, I do enjoy looking at their stoves, so I thank you all at Woodstock.

    My vote for the new stove name would have been "The Endurance". I got that idea from reading the book of Ernest Shackleton's trip to the Antartic. His ship was the Endurance. It is a great read if anyone like stories of survival in the most bleak and extreme conditions.

    Beautiful stove. Great updates. One can always dream.

    Has anyone figured out where the air control "levers/knobs/thingamajiggies" are? I can see where the bypass control will go, but haven't been able to figure out where the air controls are. Maybe those who are familiar with other Woodstocks would be able to point them out? Thanks.

    Hollow, I'm pretty sure they will be side mounted; probably similar to the Fireview.

    I'd like to thank Woodstock for all this info. I've been on this forum longer than most and have never seen any other manufacture besides Englander give us more details or info on their stoves. It is so refreshing to see a company that actually talks to their costumers, cares what they think, and go above and beyond to help and don't just push the "ask the dealer" crap. Way to go Woodstock! I'm sure this stove will turn out to be a winner. It's going to be hard for me to hold back to buy this new stove. I'm sure if I visit this Fall I can't leave empty handed.

    +1. We're stove addicts. We love this junk. Thanks for sharing and good success with the new stove! Hope you sell a boatload of them.

    Thanks, Ron. Dangling sexy pix in front of a bunch like this during the dry season was very brave of you! :)

    Just as we love to have people come and tour our facility, we love being able to share photos with those who can't. They'll be more to come as we (dare I say it?!) progress.

    I can't even look at the pics, never mind install a stove that I'd have to call that. I'm a romantic and everybody who knows me would burst out laughing the minute that name came twisting out of my lips.

    Twisting, that's right. Seriously, say "Progress Hybrid" three times fast. Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue now, does it? This crowd will soon shorten the name to "Prog" or even "PH". How you gonna sell a stove folks are calling a PH? Get out while you still can. :lol:

    "Aurora" conveys the idea of the gorgeous secondary display and looks beautiful in print, but isn't all that easy to say three times either. It's true name is "Borealis"... it just doesn't know it yet. :coolsmirk:

    Oooh, the fun you must have had with that.

    Looking forward to more. In fact, the "how to clean" series and the "how to assemble a fireview" photo series has been majorly good marketing for you folks. I have looked at and studied every one of those pictures. I've never seen such an open manufacturer, it allows the public to see what goes into a stove like this.

    I went for a tour of the place- friend was buying one. You wouldn't believe how welcoming and open everyone was. Great place, and they had dogs.

    As an "innocent bystander" , what everyone must keep in mind is that these photos although great, just doesn't do justice to the massive size, and nature of this stove. There is a sense of pride that went into getting this far, even considering this is not the complete masterpiece... I'm waiting myself to see the final product in its complete form!!! ;-)

    For what it is worth, I met nh-stovebuilder at Woodstock's factory last year. He is a very likeable man with tons of knowledge about the Woodstock stoves and he does take lots of pride in what he is doing. I can only imagine the anticipation of him and the rest of the folks at Woodstock.

    Thanks for all the hard work nh_stovebuilder, you make a great product you can be proud of. Once the new stove is done I think it would be nice to see some side by side comparisons of all the stoves.

    Here we go again... getting me all worked up wanting this stove. Just as I convinced myself that I'm satisfied with what I have and that the effort to swap them out wouldn't be worth it.... I almost hope that the required clearances are too great to fit in my stove's home just to give a good reason to not keep being tempted! Then again, I could always move the stove out a bit more... oh well.

    I imagine that if I ever see this stove in person I'll be hooked. Just the 'frankenstove' had me wanting to order one and it was certainly no looker (well, ok -it did have it's own charm, but my wife wouldn't ever understand).

    Ho hum... I am glad that with an October(ish?) release it will certainly be too late in the season for me to seriously consider swapping it out unless there was a killer deal. That puts it into next year at the earliest... yeah, that's it :)

    Thank you very much Dennis. The one thing I have learned about our stoves is that they aren't just a "product" but more of an extension of our own New England craftsmanship and personal pride. There is a little bit of us in each and every stove. I am amazed at how different each one is due to the variation of graining in the stones and yet each one that goes through the process is beautiful and well-built. To see all our stoves lined up back to back would truly be an awe inspiring moment..
