Poorly Cast, 30 Nov 2013
well this stove is a cheap made up cast. cheap being the optimum word. the built in ash pan is a thin bottom plate retained by the legs. I bought two and one bottom plate did not fit so I ground it down to fit. when fired up the fires roared away and never stopped. there was nothing you could do to make this fire slumber. the vent when closed made no difference whatsoever. these would not stay in all night unless you went fuelling up all night. they burn that fierce that the body glows red. would not trust standing next to one on full stoke. it must suck air in from the cast itself. tried fire cementing the edges of the bottom plate but no difference. I wanted these fires to heat greenhouses and the cost of these fires reflected that fact. false economy, you get what you pay for.
