I recently purchased a Vigilant Wood Stove in great condition but during the transport to my cabin, she took a leap off the trailer into a ditch. All is well, except one of the legs broke near the top. Does anyone know if any of the other VT Casting Stove legs might fit? I have a lead on a leg, but it is over $100. Any suggestions for jerry-rigging something? Not so concerned about looks, just about safety. My husband wanted to have it welded but after doing some research, that doesn't seem like a good plan to me, too high a risk of failure. Thanks!
