    I've been having problems with my current woodstove (separate thread), simply need a new woodstove, but for this season may install this Kingsman that I can get for free. From reading other threads on here, it sounds like they are built like tanks, but eat through a lot of wood. Any other input you all have for me? I can't find much info on this at all!

    I'm not even sure if this stove will work with my setup. My current setup (photo below) on my Leyden has the pipe going out the back. I will need to measure, but would need to immediately do a 90* bend into the wall that connects to the old brick chimney (lined with a 6" flue).

    Walk away from that. It will not improve matters, but it will complicate things.

    Appreciate your insight Begreen. In what way will it complicate things? I was just hoping to get by on the cheap for the rest of this season.

    Top vented with what looks like 8" pipe.
