Another Surdiac Thread

Very popular in the 70's and 80's there is many brands of smaller hand fired coal stoves from many European countries. These can also date back to the turn of the last century. Imported stoves would include such brands as Franco Belge, Saey and Efel among many others.

I agree with Franco. Doesn't influence the draft substantially. Welcome to the Surdiac crowd. I'm curious how well that PyroCeram works out. My glass panes have gotten a little crispy this season. And at $120 to replace them all, I'm open for alternatives.
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

I'll let you know how it behaves in the Surdiac next season. I have used PyroCeram to replace the glass in our old Vermont Castings stove. It works splendidly! The cost does vary significantly from online dealers so do your home work. The piece I got to install into the Surdiac cost me $109.00 delivered to my door.
