    Tale of two Carls

    the can worked for 6yrs. I,d guess exhaust port might have done the trick but i didnt get to visit the situation. Fact is leaves do pile up & pstove pipe can emit embers. gcan also works as a buffer against wind even better than a vertical chimni i'd guess

    stove pipe heat reclaimers

    if it aint blowing, it aint extracting much heat. In the case of an overfiring stove it will control the fire so i wrote a blog which is in my signature. Most deal with overfiring with a fluepipe damper which isnt automatic as the MH is & controls the fire in my sawdust burner . if the old...
