    Traffic is still way down, and we're not burning yet. If we don't highjack threads and run amok, what are we supposed to be doing? Oh, yeah, we could be getting more wood.... :cool:
    Besides, if not for that, this latest drum-beater would be on page 4 by now. ;lol

    Hey, there's a new entry in the blog! Dennis, can you keep us updated when there are developments like this? ;);lol
    Can't smoke-bomb the living room; Door won't open much unless the bypass is open. :cool:

    Me thinks they should focus on controlled burn times (I.e. I decide how long the burn goes by adjusting the stove, not the stove and wood!), efficiency (making sure we get all the heat from the wood, not my neighborhood), and keeping the glass clean / having a "cool" view of a "fire".

    I'd sent Lorin @ Woodstock an email last Thurs. and heard back within a few hours, I've not been chosen, but am on a list for consideration. Hopefully I'll be burning one of those this winter, I'd love to see what it can do against my 300i

    That's really nice. I wish the PH andirons were removable for cleaning the glass. That is the one thing I hate on the PH, wiping the glass down is a pita since the andirons are so close to the glass and not removable. It's hard to clean in front of them.

    Same with Fireview. Good thing the glass stays clean for a while.

    According to the blog entry andirons stay put and can fold forward when the door is opened so they are not in the way of cleaning the glass. They can also be removed and replaced.
    Maybe Woodstock will offer extra themed or seasonal replacement andirons? I just put in a request for a fleur de lis andirons rendering (my daughter's favorite design.)

    It's getting good now! My only concern with the andirons is that no doubt folks will end up setting wood on it while stocking up the stove. So they will have to be strong! Love the designs though and probably will be sending them some more examples.

    Here is a picture of the waterjet cutter so they can manufacture many of the metal parts in house. (my friend Mark in pic)

    The blog post says
    That sounds fairly strong. I'd be more concerned with burning myself on them while lowering them to load the stove and then putting them back in position to close the door. It doesn't look like it would be easy to load the stove without lowering the andirons and moving them every time the stove needs loaded could be ... Interesting.

    Steel firebox, steel andirons, they are getting close to a steel stove. What God intended all of those trees to be burned in. ;lol

    Yes. I was referring to the Progress andirons. Wish they were removable/foldable to clean in front of them. ;)

    NO! Wood is meant to be burned in a steel firebox, surrounded inside and out by Soapstone! Preferable with a secondary burn plate and a CAT in the exhaust path. God was very specific about this. :)

    I just talked to him. He said he made those rocks for counter tops. And he is perplexed that people burn trees in it. And isn't surprised that they need a cat to burn clean in the stuff. ;)

    I believe God skipped the stove and went straight to the burning bush.

    That this is the coolest looking monster I've seen to date!
    Are these types of stoves intended for the main living areas or more basement dweller?

    The folks at Woodstock are amazing in their eager response to customer suggestions:

    Yes, the best way I can describe the folks at Woodstock is they make you feel and treat you like family!
