    Heat-n-glow hearth requirements?

    Thanks Dave. I called HHT and they pretty much confirmed a 16" x 52" dimension. The lady has been contacted, she is happy, and all is right in the world. Thanks, JB

    Heat-n-glow hearth requirements?

    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...

    blaze king king questions (got it a week ago)

    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.

    Me too. I'm still trying to find the CF capacity. I'm liking this thing so far.

    The Ideal Steel in black

    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

    The Ideal Steel in black

    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.

    Grisu, you left out the budget minded people who appreciate the benefits of a catalytic stove. At $1500, this will have a following.

    The Ideal Steel in black

    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?

    Fireview or stick with the NC-13?

    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.

    Fireview or stick with the NC-13?

    " You Vehwwy funny Dr. Jones!!"- Short Round Trust me, I'll be very scientific when comparing the two. walks in one room- That's warm. walks to another room- That's warm also. Hmmm.... must decide.

    I Think I Get More Heat Out Of Pine Than Hardwood?

    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...

    Fireview or stick with the NC-13?

    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:!!!

    Ladies, my wife wants a wheelbarrow for Christmas.....input?

    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...

    Am I crazy for wanting a "Classic" woodstove?

    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.

    Ladies, my wife wants a wheelbarrow for Christmas.....input?

    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?
