For sure it looks like a fireplace insert- appears to be an air space around the firebox for a blower to move air. Like was said, it's hard to do a thorough job of cleaning. If you put this in a fireplace it would be best if you hooked it up to a stainless steel pipe liner. If you don't the chimney doesn't get hot enough to keep creosote from building up on the stone/brick.

excatly Then the creosote dries and falls down behind the insert and builds up and when you have a flue fire bushels of creosote start to burn. Been the cause of many of house fires. Stainless flue liner is the only way to go for these.

Corse. Cts hard to tell from the frount. a chimney sweep would be able to inspect the insert and give you the best recomendation for instulation.

Is this a wood stove or a fire place incert? There wer some incerts made like this that the insurance companies had outlawed becouse there was a chamber in the top of them that couldnt be properly cleaned without pulling the incert out of the fire place. What does the back side look like? Just woundering if it is one of those?

Put a sheet of plywood on the bed and tail gate and lift a end up on the stove and put a few pipes under it to roll it on. Sure is a big one to put in the house! The door Jam will be fun to get thru!!! Mark H.

Good suggestion, Mark. A friend of mine uses plastic pipe, probably schedule 40 and no more than an inch and a half in diameter and moves all kinds of stuff around. He just sold an old milling machine and bought a better one. Moved them both using that plywood, either. Just those pipes on a concrete floor. They'll take a lot of weight without crushing.

How?    Posted 01-06-2005 at 15:03:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
do you get the stove off the truck?

I would back up to the porch and brace the plywood and roll it off. I have taken 500 lb engines off pick up beds by myself with wood ramps and pipes to role it on. PVC does work good. Course I would use the forks on my tractor since I have them now. Levers work wonders! Mark H.
