    Don't judge. It's a shop, a place of creativity. Lol.

    My old Lakewood went back into service today. Just in time too, the shop has been chilly!

    Top down light up, for its first shop fire. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    I am wanting to consider some options for making this stove more efficient. I've been searching and looking around but if anyone has any threads or similar type stoves they want to point me towards, it would be much appreciated.

    Does it have a baffle?

    image.jpg Yes. I posted a pic of the inside on the first page. Albeit not that great of one. Here it is again. It has a warped simple metal plate as a baffle.

    It's operating in my shop the same as it did in my house. Either heat or smoke out the stack. It will idle down and smoulder well. But man is it smokey.

    Is there a damper on the flue? That won't stop the smoke but will keep heat resident for longer in the stove and pipe below the damper.

    I have no damper in the pipe, if that's what you mean? It seems like I can really turn it down well though with the air dampers on the door.

    I should add I'm happy with the heat output, just wanting to clean up and extend the burn times a bit if possible.

    With our Jotul I get more heat by not smoldering (air all the way closed) but by having the air open a little and closing down the flue damper. Flue temp above the damper goes down and the stove temp comes up. But to clean up the burn it will take more than this.

    There are some success stories here with putting in a full, baffle and secondary rack below it.

    Yes, that's a pretty sweet and complete conversion.
