Just got off the phone with a nice lady in Vail. She's just had a new Heat-n-glo Cosmo 135 gas insert installed. She is concerned about hearth requirements and I couldn't locate anything in the downloaded manual. This thing is at floor level and she wants to run new laminate flooring right up to...
Sounds like you're on the right track to getting it figured out.
When your lengths/ angles are figured out, you should switch to double wall pipe.
You'll find you want that extra heat in the flue, it won't be much higher but it will be a good thing. You'll see.
On a lighter note- (and this could be the beer talking)- I've always been a Star Wars fan...
The BK has been referred to as " Jabba the Hot"-
This stove looks like "R2-D2", they could compliment each other.==c<>;lol
Did I read this correctly?-
stove top- 8" to 6" reducer
reducer to 6" pipe (not sure if it's single or double-wall)
4' of 6" pipe running horizontal
90 degree elbow going 'up',18" vertical inside of brick chimney
Is that correct?
I have no idea. Depends on their requirements I would guess. Now for me, I'm fairly budget minded, so if I can find a stove like this "Ideal Steel" for $1500, vs. 2K+ for a Blaze King I want, yeah, I'm going to consider it. Especially with the customer support I've seen reported from Woodstock.
I like it. The location I would install it, I'd probably have a bench vise bolted to it in 6 months and it would look fine.
I'm still not finding the specs. on this thing, my Google-Fu is weak tonight. Anyone have any insight?
Mine is new, still on the original pallet. One of our welders has already offered $650. No sales tax, no shipping, and I'll help him install it.
But, I doubt I'll hear back from the Fireview guy, so it probably will go in for this winter.
In AP's defense, I understood his message just fine.
Turbo, I see what you're say'in- more Pine in- more heat out. Don't have to worry about those pesky coals to burn down before a re-load. I get it and agree, not that I have any experience with hardwood and the BK-(Grrrrrr.....<>) maybe...
Dennis, just got off the phone with him. He's mulling it over. I expect a counter offer, but he'll have to get used to disappointment, I'm not going higher. I'll keep this posted If I get it.
Heck, maybe I'll be the one to end the old debate about Woodstock vs. Blaze King? :rolleyes:!!!
I'm digging the cart. She saw something on a DIY show and said- That's what I want!
I am not going to show her the battery powered wheelbarrow, I think the shipping alone would be a deal breaker, much less the initial cost. It is cool though.
Forgot, I also have to find a good rechargeable...
It's an adjustment, and I sympathize. My Blaze King is great for 6 out of the 8 months I burn. BUT,..those two months when it's really cold, I still miss that old Timberline. That thing put out some heat.
Try a big radiant heater- NC-30 comes to mind.
I'm not making this up, she really wants a new wheelbarrow for Christmas. She wants one with ergonomic handles but hasn't told me which one. I would guess a 2-wheeled version, 6 CF capacity . So, who likes what?
