Was it you?They just blamed me. So I got a refund rather than another one.
The insert uses a heavier duty baffle than the stove. It has a heavy plate steel panel that lays on top of the SS baffle. I don't know why they didn't use the same one on the stove?Was it you?
Just teasing you. Freestanding cape cod is a beauty, too bad it didn't hold too good. I hope my insert will not crack. It has been good too me so far other than being inpractical as far as loading it, but that's the price I have to pay for having a flush insert I guess.
That's just fine. Both are painted with metallic Black Stove Bright from the factory. The touch up can has more metal flake than the factory paint, so you need to paint a bigger area than you might think to blend it. Make sure to spray the can into the air before you start, to clear the catalyst out of the nozzle.It is weird since a freestanding stove has a bigger fire box. They should build it stronger than a smaller stove. Since you know so much about the stoves I have to ask a question. Is it ok to paint the cast iron surround? And if it is should I use the the paint supplied with the stove? Or it's just for the stove itself? The reason I want to paint it is that when I was cleaning glass I sprayed over the cast and now I have some ugly stains that I cannot get rid off.
