There are various plastic refractories out there that are pretty good.

In looking at the flue bricks, why couldn't one make a wooden mold with a slightly tapered peg for the flue, line withe fiberglass resin so it wouldn't stick and cast your own with Rutland castable refractory cement? At $95 a pop there is no way one can afford to reline one and they are the best darn stove and also cheap to get. I have 3 now and will buy more as I find them. I want to dis-assemble mine next summer and seal all the joints like new so I have better control of the fire but 2 days is easy in mild weather. I burn blashek in the 2nd one and it is a beautiful thing. Almost no clinkers or ash and shut right down 600 deg on the side and 200 in the stack at the baro above the manual damper. I think they compare very favorably with stoves costing $2500 and I paid $15 for mine. Does any one know of a paint that would take the temps to paint the sheet metal?
I used rutlands stove polish on the entire stove and then clear coated it with stove bright high temp paint, but the clear coat burned off most of the stove. Maybe if you paint it black and don't use the Rutlands and give it a couple of coats while curing it in between, you may get a good solid, lasting paint. Never in my life have I gotten a high temp paint to not bun off eventually. This is why I just stick to rutlands stove polish now.

Hey all,

Just inherited a model 818 from my uncle who never used the stove. If anybody is in the southwest Indiana area (Vincennes), I just bought a truckload of coal from Triad Mining in Freelandville for $40/ton. I don't know what kind of coal it is. I asked the person running the scale booth, and nobody had any idea. Looks like coal, though.

Anyways, we're messing with the stove trying to find out the optimal placement of the lower draft door, should we keep the upper slider open, etc. Any rules of thumb that would help? I would like a magnetic stove thermometer, but we have an IR laser thermometer for the time being. Also, we don't have an inline damper in the flue. Is that important to have?

As far as a heat reclaimer, we have a desk fan blowing onto the upper end of the stove pipe. Helps a bit.

See my post in this thread: "New" Warm Morning 500

Don't use a pipe damper. Use an 8" flue. Hopefully the coal you obtained is large lumps and not fines or slack. Use more overfire and less underfire air.

Baseburners & Antiques: Warm Morning Model 520

Does anyone have the specifications for a Warm Morning Model 520? How much coal can it hold and most importantly, what is the empty weight of the 520?

Thanks for any info.
