    Progress gasket question

    Well, the person said it was hard to describe on the phone. I'm scratching my head, but I have a plan that I will post later.

    Progress gasket question

    Ordered a bunch of gaskets from Woodstock, to my relief, much of the old gaskets were cemented only at the connection ends from the factory. On the door gasket the replacement was black - is this for aesthetics? - and the replacement had an additional 8 inch flat gasket with a sticky back. I...

    Woodstock FV vs PH

    PH. A technician at Woodstock told me once, you can always build a smaller fire. The PH is also designed to cook on. Originally my PH was in a 1500 sf 1860's house and was situated in a fairly small room. No problem at all.

    Progress hybrid bypass handle adjustment

    I could be wrong as I have an error rate, but I don't think there is any "pressure" needed. I know what you are saying as I thought pressure was needed to "lock down" the internal bypass door. It's just gravity that drops the door and the handle can be loosy goosy. I used to "lock" it but found...

    Well, now that you've tackled that mechanical electrical project - it's time to order a tube amp kit from Weber!

    Any one using a pellet basket in their wood stove?

    Yes, so imagine the furnace at the far end of the greenhouse in the corner. The heat duct pipe (not the flue pipe), 2 runs go up, across the upper greenhouse struts, then come back down to the ground (3 feet above ground) in 2 locations. So, the woodstove furnace itself produces heat, 20 feet...

    Doghouse?

    My girlfriend owned the said stove for 5 years then I came on the scene having owned/installed many quality stoves and had a solid understanding. As a matter of fact I did some gasket work on said stove to get it up and running correctly. As far as nowhere enough time, the Progress was a snap...

    Doghouse?

    Sorry, will not divulge lest I get the wrath of the hearth. But I think the Avatar may give a clue.

    Stool on my wood

    OMG, I built my own timberframe home once cutting the timbers on a farm. Several times I'd arrive in the morning to find that cows had dumped all over my beams. What was interesting is that upon inspection because of the way the beams were laid out, the cow, in my analysis, had to actually back...

    Any one using a pellet basket in their wood stove?

    I installed a Drolet wood furnace in a greenhouse next door and ran 2 sections of pipe up, across the top then down. Works pretty well, at least 10 times better than the woodstove that it replaced. This is a 2 membrane "air inflated separated greenhouse," which at this point barely works. (The...

    Doghouse?

    I'm glad this question was asked as it's been on my mind. Out of about a dozen stoves I have owned only one stove that had one. It was by far the worst stove I ever operated and lasted a total of 2 weeks of operating it before I was on the phone ordering a new stove. Why would any air inlet be...

    Installation question(s)

    I just never understood the appeal of a TV above the stove. The sightline is too high for my comfort - unless you had theater seating of course.

    Should I insulate the OAK duct?

    Well, if you were to use fiberglass insulation, eventually mold could occur. A closed foam surround not so. One question, how far above the ground does your pipe terminate outside?

    Should I insulate the OAK duct?

    I get thin frost on mine but so little it isn't a problem.

    Woodstock, BlazeKing, Vermont Castings...who to go with?!

    Ah...Latrobe previous home of one of the most drinkable and unique beers because of the water source. Sadly it's no longer the same since big brother "Bud" bought them stopped brewing it there. "33". The younger generation will never know.

    Woodstock, BlazeKing, Vermont Castings...who to go with?!

    Put hydronic radiant floor heat in and you will be good to go. Along with the Progress of course.

    Ok. So anyone in a basement situation can not have an OAK?

    Progress Hybrid

    One of my draft restriction - problem or assets - is that I have an OAK that terminates about 6 feet above the stove. this essentially I believe restricts the air intake to some degree. Just a guess.

    Nope, just said to remove, cleaning is an extra charge.

    Progress Hybrid

    I assume you meant "once" Now I'm really confused. Are early Progress stoves cats hard to get at? Are they different? Mine comes out in about 30 seconds no tools. IF you are attempting to clean it #1 by sucking with a vac and #2 not taking it out that's a no go.

    Progress Hybrid

    Now I'm curious. Over draft would clog the cat how? Cooling too fast? I'm just guessing I'd love to know as my draft sucks - excuse the pun - but I could never overfire and never have quickly clogged. Lucky for me. But what are the physics?

    Hey one question, when you say plugged is it grey fine plugged or black plugged?

    Progress Hybrid

    Ok then, I was at Woodstock once watching a technician rebuild a stove because the operator removed the cat and ran it. Good luck!
