What would your budget be for a wood burning/multi fuel stove?

Recommended Posts

fair enough.  i broke a glass this winter gone....screws holding it were too tight (not my fault...i couldn't get them out), and my baffle has a little warp too.  Although it was a cheapish replacement and the warp probaby speaks as much to the quality as my treatment.  although like you i agree, run a stove hard and clean, but unlike you i stick to wood.  I reckon its coal that causes most of the over fire damage.  i think you'd have to really go for it to do damamge to a small stove with wood....do a hot reload and leave the air open and it will go very very hot but small stoves will burn though the fuel so fast i decent stove will survive fine...unless you do that repeatedly all day long!

....suspect the fire bricks wre half caused by PET coke, the latest one is caused by the old grate moving and warpng as it fell apart - but the baffle plate, defenite caused by it getting hot


I do prefer to run it full on rather than ticking over - it appears to keep cleaner that way

Don't most stove manufacturers advise against burning PET Coke? (it voids the warranty)
