NY Burning?

Postby Slack Tide » Wed Oct 23, 2013 6:11 am

Who has the wood stove going? I settled on the new Jotul 600....so far so good. Just got done with the "burn in" fires...the coat these things with mineral oil inside to prevent rusting during storage and it burns off and stinks for a while.
Still getting some odor, but nice to have a fire going again.
Supposed to drop tonight.

Yeah those are fun...they off gas quite a bit in the start up, especially the little emblem/seal that has writing on it.
That must blow you out of that shed?

Haven't heated the garage with the woodstove yet. Will start burning wood when trapping season begins in November.

Restocked most of the firewood pile with ash back in the spring. Topped it off with some cherry and other assorted stuff during the summer. Last week I cleared out all the junk I had stored behind the stove for the summer. Just have to brush the stove pipe out and I'll be ready to go. :yes:

There is a little stamp label on the front of the stove door (Vogelzang) that gives the specs and has a plastic coating film. That thing melted and stunk up the Eel Flingers garage until we brushed it off. Maybe they changed it. Also, many (all) stoves are usually wiped with mineral oil on the inside to prevent the raw metal from rusting, that usually burns off called "off gassing"...this also includes solvents, furnace cement and paint. Sounds like you were spared that pleasure.
They are fun little stoves...You'll know it's too hot when the sides turn white!

Price is one thing, quality and count is another here. These guys have a TON of wood from Sandy, so shop around for sure.
They look at you like you are crazy when you tell them you want to come look at it.
But you can get some guys who load with a Bobcat and scoop it, so you end up with 1/2 yard of gravel, mud, bark and a dead cat.
Look for guys who hand load full cords, specify NO pine and tell them how big you want it, many will accommodate a large stove.
I'm paying $180 for nice cords now...but I still grab what I can from the side of the road when I can

Ah I get it, not a Voglezang those are crap. Bought a sweet little airtight on craigslist guy wanted $300, looked at it and debated. A month ago the guy calls me and says $100 if I get it out of his house the next day. Great little stove.

I have a cabin up in the Adirondaks and have a box stove in it. When I get there I turn the electric heat on til the wood stove catches up. But after that the wood stove is all I use. Love that smell early in the morn as you refire it and shes putting out heat. I think I paid around 200 for it from Northern Tool several years ago. Great feeling after hunting sitting there listening to her crackle as you wind down.
