hey tilac999,the russo c55 works good.It's a little harder to get going than my old stove,I guess because it's much more air tight than my old stove.I think you'll be happy with it,lotta heat from a small package.Here's some pics.

Hey, looking good! The brass is a nice touch. How does the blower work? Quiet? Burntime?

the blower is a little noisy when it first starts up. I got about 14 hours on my first burn but it took me a long time to get it going.The door is a solid brass casting,very heavy needs some polishing . Maybe someday I'll polish it up, its in my work shop doesn't need to look that good though :P
