Hi everyone! I am pretty new at wood burning stoves and I actually just got a Waterford Fionn to install in my small house from a buddy. I have been doing tons of searches but couldnt find the information I need. I recently started cleaning up my stove and getting it ready for installation. When I removed the back heat shield I noticed the rear air valve is missing and the arm going to the front of the stove. My questions are: Does anyone have any links to these parts used? I checked with how much they are new and it looks to be about $200 without shipping from Ireland. Can I just fabricate a valve out of steel since the stove is Cast? I basically want to be able to turn down the stove so it can slowly burn while I am away at work and then open it back up when I am home, correct me if I am wrong but if this air valve is missing then the fire will burn quicker throughout the day. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kyle EDIT: I just saw this was moved into the PRE-EPA Thread, the stove is actually EPA certified and was built according to the manufacture stamp in 1992.
