The top is 4' high. I took 20 or so gals of creosote out of the chimney
Wow, I'm assuming it was plugged full ??
No about 1 to 1.5" of buildup in a 35" tall 7" liner
I assume 35 feet not inch.
Dang...that's a lot.

No doubt, probably feed that thing whole logs.
Damn that's a beast. Galvanized stove pipe?
6 cubic feet firebox....or bigger perhaps?
No just cooked black pipe.
No that door is 2'x2' 5' deep
With you and your opinions on here, I bet you had to shove a big foot in your mouth for this one hahaha
Kool pictures simple looking stove!
I thought for sure you were going to post a picture of yourself with a tall black hat beard and dark sun glasses lol
20 gallons of creosote is hard to believe. They are very lucky that stuff didn't catch on fire. That's a lot of fuel.
Once I had an old farmer that was pretty confrontational when I got there, his wife wanted the chimney cleaned, but he knew it didn’t need it. I filled a 30 gallon trash bag with creosote! The horizontal section was almost filled with fly ash too. Once I cracked it open, the guy left in a hurry...
Sadly 10+ gals is not that uncommon. There is one place we take 20 to 30 gals out every year. The most i ever took out of a chimney was about 65 gals. We now clean that place every year and get 15 to 20 a year.
The lady with this stove just got the house when her father died. We have been working on the stove for years but she just ordered a regency 5100 to replace this beast.
It has an insulated liner it meets all clearances it is just a rediculous stove that cant possibly be run clean. She already knew it needed to go
You can just stop right there, no explanation needed.
Wow! How many of these dino',s do you still get to see? At least its getting replaced. May be interesting getting them up to speed on the modern unit
Allot but even with modern stoves this website really is not an accurate representation of how most woodburners run their stoves.
Replaced two old oil fired boilers in a machine shop once. The pipes and chimney were clogged nearly shut. Made a horrible mess.
Wow, last 2 sweeping I came up with a grand 3/4 cup of dust.
Now that I can understand. In my youth we had to clean out decades of soot from the breach for live coal boilers at Wingdale, NY. The duct connecting to the huge brick chimney was big enough for a semi to drive thru. We put in a temporary huge exhaust blower, cut thru the roof and tied that into the breach. Then we had to weld in plates to block the the breech so that it could be vacuumed and repaired. Want to know what it's like to have to go into 20' of soot? It took days to wash that stuff out.
And we do work for people whose chimneys are like that. Some of them are even using old pre epa stoves. Most now have somewhere between a gallon or 2.
