Hello everyone.

Just a question, I have a Castile insert, and it must be the pellets this year but the flame gets pretty tall and I want to turn it down...but I've reached the extent of turning it down with the adjustment rod. Has anybody ran into this before? Only thing I can think of is to add a piece of metal to the end that covers the auger hold down in the bottom of the hopper, but I don't want to tear it all apart and do that right now. Or I unscrew the thumb screw that is holding the adjustment rod and move it down another quarter of an inch and tape it in place for now....

Not a huge problem, but would like a more efficient flame.

Actually, now that I look at my own picture, I think I have a tiny locking pliers I could just put in place to hold the adjustment rod when I pull out the thumb screw if need to....duh.
