Anyone have any experience buying a generic set of woodstove legs/legs from a different brand than the stove, and attaching them to a stove (maybe by welding if the bolt holes don't line up?)

I have an Avalon Pendleton that was used as an insert, however we want to turn it into a freestanding stove. Unfortunately, after consulting with our local fireplace store, I have learned that Travis Industries (parent company of Lopi/Avalon/Fireplace Xtrordinaire) no longer manufactures leg kits, so I'm left looking at other options as to how to get the stove up on legs.

Doing this would mean the stove is an unlisted appliance and needs 36" clearance to combustibles

given the situation with TI no longer making leg kits, is there a way to put it on legs without it losing its UL listing/reduced clearances?

Aren't the insert and freestanding stoves different models?

no, Avalon stoves are designed to be used as inserts or freestanding stoves.

The Avalon line has been discontinued for a few years now.

I know, but I can still get all sorts of other parts for them... plus, don't Lopi stoves use the exact same legs as Avalon stoves? ...and since Lopi is still in production, I figured they would still make leg kits 🤷‍♂️
