Haha 😂!

Here’s a mag pic ...

The cylindrical portion measures 6” high by 8” diameter. The upper portion is oddly shaped but I figure it’s maybe 60% of the bottom?

The grate is 12.5” diameter, the “pot” is 16.5” D at the top, 4.5” high and 12” D at the bottom.


4.5” high...yikes. I wonder how long that stove will hold a fire?

You can start by filling the magazine with coal the way you have it setup now.


Set the two halves of the firepot on a table and fill it to the top.

From your pictures you should be able to estimate how high the magazine sat above the firepot.

That will give you an idea how much coal to add to the firepot to replicate the cone.

The firepot sets about a half inch above the grate but weighing what's in the heaped up firepot and then the magazine will give you a pretty good idea of its capacity.

My daughter is purchasing a home with a fireplace and is considering a Baltimore or other antique insert. Her mantle is made of wood. Does anybody have experience with fire code compliance issues? As an "undocumented" stove my understanding that the minimum clearance to combustibles is 36", 18" if shielded.

Well after looking through >100 posts, it looks like the only cosmetically pleasing way to install a Baltimore/insert and make the insurance company happy is to replace the wood mantel with marble or quartz. :-(

as an alternative how about polished aggregate ? as in concrete. could even color it to gain a bit more decorative touch.

There is a granite counter top place here in New Hampshire that sells some kinda stone that looks just like a birch or maybe a light maple, has the grain in it and all
