Cheapest most expediant solution I have been able to come up with is to rent a 36 foot articulating lift tomorrow and put my liner in. That should be a hoot. Talk about your learning curves. Oh well. by the end of the day I will have my liner in and the next cold weather I plan to fire thoe old beast up. Get at least one more winter out of this thing....and then next year I will rebuild it again and see how many more years she has in her. Old stove is like an old friend. I can't imagine giving her away.
