I like those easy fixes Lee. I'll give it a try. Never thought of it. My concern for greasing that area was the heat, but you're right, dry graphite could work. I'll let you know.Lightning wrote:Hey Joe! Did you try some graphite lube where the two parts are making contact?
Thanx Mike, and you're right also. I'ld love to find another stove someday, even if I'll need to modify my wall thimble, due to the severely low mounting of the stove pipe outlet of the Surdiac. I haven't heard yet of any antique stoves that will fit my application directly, but I'll keep hunting.michaelanthony wrote:joep As you stated, an antique stove would fit your location real nice and I can think of a couple others as well, just ask and I will add my $.02. You are centrally located in the heart of New England and much closer to PA. than many so have fun shopping. The antique market seems to have ticked up a couple notches over the last year but spring and summer is always a good time to pick up a diamond in the rough. I am glad you found your squeek, sometimes the little things bug the crap out of me. Your family must be proud of the work you put in this winter, we are!
Hope all are enjoying your stoves while they "idle" during our warm-up spell. I believe another 'bout of ole man winter is still waiting around the corner, to justify a little more, coal warmth.
