    Hey Slow, does this mean we may meet again at Woodstock? I hope so as we are going to make a good attempt at going just this one more time.

    nh, just seeing the new stoves ready for shipment all lined up is a sight to behold! But we also know all you guys do great work and are also a big help to folks like me.

    Resistance is futile! You know you want one, you might as well put your Fireview on Craigs list and get your name on the waiting list. :lol:

    I'm afraid what I'd do if I ever visited Woodstock, I'd be like a kid in a candy store.

    nh_stovebuilder, Please know that Woodstock's commitment to excellence is well known and well appreciated. And I will be putting my money where my mouth is, as soon as I get the go ahead. I do believe I'm as excited to see the new stove as you are, hyperventilating just thinking about it, so if you don't mind, more pics please ;-) Thanks for all the effort and thought that's gone into this stove and for sharing this very exciting time with us.

    Very likely if we are able to get out for the open house we'll come that is if I can pull it off with the family. Kids had a great time last visit and the wife didn't complain all that much :) However I don't think she is keen on a new stove. You should have seen the scene of us pulling this one up the stairs to get it in place. I can't imagine the new model will be any lighter! Gravity will help get the old one down the stairs (too not too fast I would hope) but it won't be our friend getting a new rock in place. Perhaps you want to take a visit to MA for a stove install this time?

    If you do make it to NH, you know we aren't THAT far south....

    In a world of unlimited resources that would be so true... but then reality sets in and I realize I have limitations... but I can dream. And perhaps I'll win the lottery or my company stock will recover to Y2K levels or...

    And yes - visiting Woodstock is like visiting a candy store in many ways but don't get caught licking the stoves (especially the hot ones). Folks look at you REALLY weird, and they take back the Hearth.com hat and won't give you another free supercedar...

    Well Slow, I expect a few folks from hearth.com may be at Woodstock so perhaps we could all then meet at your place the following day to get that big thing up those stairs. However, beverages may be required....

    I'd love to see you and your family again and you will probably have more questions that I about that new stove. We are making plans for the trip already and hope we can pull it off.

    I hope to be there but need to make arrangements for accomodations if I hang out there for a while.. What are your plans? It would be great to meet the hearth.com folks such as yourself!

    I plan on going up also, I will know definitely in a few weeks. It's a 2 hour ride up for me. If anyone wants to go with me, and you are by Route 495 or 93, shoot me a pm. The wife and kids will probably not be going, so I have room. Chip in for gas and coffee and off we will go. Coffee and donuts and a few hours of woodstove talk on the road will be had. Not a bad day.

    Well, I gave the date to the wife... she gave me a sigh but gave me an encouraging "guess we have to let Daddy put some things on the calendar too" comment so... perhaps I (or we) will be there after all :) Nothing definite at this point but it could be fun.

    As to the odds of my getting a stove - I'd give it less than 30% chance at this point. Desire is there but finances won't likely work out. I can (and will) still dream about it. Perhaps they will have another drawing promo and I can get lucky or something, ha!

    Here's some more info on the new stove I received by email. I was asking about the possiblilities of a thermostat similar to Blaze King. Looks like they have a couple different options in the works.

    "The new stove has a “butterfly†damper: the butterfly has very good control
    of the burn rate at low firing rates. The new damper is built so that it
    can be modified easily downstream. We have thought about using bimetallic
    coil, and one could be added easily. We haven’t completely abandoned the
    idea, but ideally we would want the design to open and close at different
    burn rates and give more control than a bimetallic would offer.

    One of our suppliers now makes a damper operator that runs on a couple of
    thermocouples and looks interesting. It could close a damper to prevent
    over-firing, or it could open a damper to prevent oxygen starvation. It
    looks interesting.

    Separately, we developed an algorithm that controlled a damper and a fan to
    pressurize the secondary air and was driven primarily by an O2 sensor. We
    have applied to EPA for an SBIR grant for a related project. One of these
    last two is more likely the direction we will go in."

    A wood eater? I wouldn't call any of Woodstock's stoves wood eaters. This new stove should be their best. Compare it to the Fireview. When we installed the Fireview in our house we cut our wood needs in half! And we also are a lot warmer. This new stove should be even better! Certainly not to be compared with V/C.

    Sacrilege! Nothing like the VC line and with the addition of the thermostat I'm thinking this stove will go 24 hours between loads.
