    Hello.
    This is my first post and I’m hoping for some great response.
    I just got done with a massive over haul of a 50 year old 118. Took it completely apart installed new gaskets paint the whole nine. Installed a chimney liner and now am heating my home.

    Couple questions.
    How hot should this stove be burning at.?
    I have a thermometer right now on the top plate. Is that the correct place?

    Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

    The F118 is a willing heater and will run at about 650F easily with dry wood. Try to keep it below 750F and it should be fine.

    I'd be glad top see more pictures of your overhaul and the final result.

    What inspired you to do that project?
