Wood Stoves are Built to Last a Lifetime!
in the NE corner of Iowa 15 miles from the Mississippi
River and 15 Miles from the Minnesota border. I have
been making stoves for many years and they should last
a lifetime! They will heat the largest 3 story farm
house there is and I will estimate the output is at
least 200,000 btu/hr. I built these stoves this size
so I could cut my labor in half for cutting and splitting
a winter's supply of wood. And after 30 years of cutting
wood, this was very important to me. I could make these
stoves smaller but they would cost almost as much, since
the labor would be about the same. Why would anyone
give up the [cut the labor in half] feature just to
save a few inches of space? You can run a 10 inch round
pipe to the hot air chamber of your furnace if you wish
or just run it to a small register in the central room
of the 1st floor like I do. My furnace never runs while
I have the wood stove going and 1 winter my furnace
died and I never got it fixed until the next fall. This
stove is so efficient that people can't believe it,especially
when you burn dry wood. If you burn DRY wood, you can
have very little air coming into the stove and the fire
still stays hot while there is very little air going
up the chimney. If you look at the pics of my setup
in the basement you will see the smokepipe is auger
tubing and painted black. I made a mistake and grabbed
a can of cheap paint that was next to the high temp
paint I wanted to use. So when I got over being mad
at myself for using the wrong paint, I figured I would
just paint it with the high temp paint once the cheap
stuff burned off. It has been over 5 years now and all
the paint is still there. I figure the pipe has only
gotten up to 350 degrees, and my paint chemist friend
that works for John Deere said that if it would get
to 400 degrees that "cheap crap" would be
gone! My woodroom measures 13'x14' and now a full room
of wood lasts 2 years instead of 1 year with my old
The stove has a 2 inch space between
the firebox and jacket and the air is replaced 2 1/2 times
per second. The outside of the stove gets up to approximately
230 degrees and as you can see in one of my pics, the top
is loaded with wood for drying. However, the front of the
stove and smoke pipe gets hotter so you should not have anything
I can heat my 2 story,
100 year old farm house ( 5 bedrooms upstairs) from
September to June, without the help of my LP furnace,
on 5 bundles of slabs which is about 3 cords of wood.
Even at 0 degrees outside temperature, I only throw
a few slabs in the stove at a time or it gets way too
hot in the house

larger pieces of wood. With the huge firebox (10 cubic
feet!) you won't have to keep feeding it several times
a day. This stove warms a cold house fast and will pay
for itself the first year. We have a Lifetime Guarantee

Thank you for your
I just talked to one
of my old stove customers who had one of my stoves for
5 years but sold it back to me because his basement
would get flooded every time it rained hard. His wood
was always getting wet so he decided to get an outdoor
boiler wood stove. He used it last winter and said he
was going to get a larger model because it couldn't
keep up when it was real cold. I couldn't believe what
I was hearing because when he had my stove I would always
ask him how the stove was going and he would always
tell me it was just on low and his house was plenty
warm. His outdoor stove is 5 times as big as mine and
it can't keep up? It doesn't sound like a very efficient
stove to me and it takes 4 times the wood that my stove
needs to do the same job and costs 3 times as much!
Dick: I was just
looking at ebay today and saw your auction for your
woodburner. You probably don't remember me, my name
is RUSS RADLOFF from CASCADE, IA - I BOUGHT A WOOD STOVE
FROM YOU ABOUT A YEAR AGO. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MEANING
TO CALL YOU BACK, AND EXPRESS TO YOU HOW PLEASED I AM
WITH IT. IT HEATS MY SHOP 35X40X12 PERFECTLY. FEEL FREE
TO HAVE ANY POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS CALL ME. I WILL PUT
IN A GOOD WORD ABOUT YOUR STOVES. ...
Dick: This is
James Beasley, and a friend and I had purchased 2 of
your stoves last year, and I wanted to let you know
that they work very well and if you ever need someone
to recommend them, just give them my name and e-mail
address or phone number and I'll tell them how well
we like them. I have a 3000 sq ft house and it will
literally run me out of it. Thanks again! ...
Dick: Our house
is MUCH warmer than it was last year! We only had it
at 63 degrees last year and the old woodstove was always
loaded and the furnace was running ... this year we
are at 68 to 70 with the stove on low and basically
no furnace! It really is a great stove! We really are
VERY happy with it! ...
Dick: Just want to tell you how happy I am with the stove. It provides
plenty of heat to my whole house (3 thousand sq ft). For the
first time in history, we actually are finding ourselves opening
windows when it gets too hot inside - Thank you for your patience
while talking me through the blower and thermostat wiring
- You're a gentleman of your word and you build a first rate
product - that's saying alot nowadays. The stove has incredible
draft and wood ignites easily. The firebox is huge and I can
load it up with lots of firewood for many hours of steady
heat - I burn alot of garbage in it too. I'm 100% off fossil
fuels to heat my house. With home heating oil over $3 now,
your stove came at the right time, although I wish I had it
years ago. What can you do about my car?! Seriously, please
post this as a testimonial to your product, and feel free
to give my phone number to anyone considering buying your

A stove loaded with
firebrick is a warning sign! Manufacturers use firebrick
to protect thin firebox walls. As a result the heat
is slowed from getting to the outside, causing heat
loss up the chimney. Firebrick will have to be replaced
yearly and if a brick falls out of place, a hole will
be burned through the firebox, rendering the stove unusable
. Brick also reduces the size of the firebox.
