    I have an old orley stove for my shop and wondering about wall clearances. I've read a lot of conflicting points but what I keep reading is that with 24 gauge sheet metal with a 1" buffer the minimum clearance is 12". Is this true? I will be putting it into a corner of the shop.

    With a proper NFPA wall shield the clearance is dropped from 36" to 12". The shield must be on 1" non-combustible spacers and 1" off the ground, open at the top and bottom so that air can freely flow behind it.

    FYI, whoever sold the stove, broke the law. You cannot sell, exchange or give away uncertified wood stoves or solid fuel burning devices here.

    Just a place to work on whatever I need and I usually have people over and play pool in it. It'll be used about 2 times a week

    If there will be gasoline in the building by code you can't install a stove in it.

    Ok then yes you can reduce clearances down to 12 with a ventilated heat shield as you described. But it still will not be a legal install in your state because it is an uncertified stove
