    No, I have to seal the joints every few years, more sometimes when I screw up. I have to crawl, my head and shoulders, into the stove and seal the joints. I just see that as unnecessary with the welded steel stove. I am no longer young. I like wood heat.

    (Disclaimer: Does not everyone seal the joints of their wood stoves?)

    I resealed mine this year, but it was more because I had to take it apart to replace the insulation/fiberboard that goes over the reburn tubes. Somebody had replaced the original board with plate steel at some point and it had warped, so I took the stove apart and replaced the parts and had to reseal it when I put it back together. But the other joints are original and the stove's about 20. But as near as I can tell there's no air leaks from any of them, so I haven't bothered. Soapstone with a cast iron frame from Hearthstone.

    Edit- I'm surprised you have to reseal yours that often, though. My Parents resealed theirs in the very early 2000's (I was still in high school and I graduated in '03) and theirs is still leak-free after 15+ years at 6-8 cord/year. :notsure:

    I bought mine about 8 years ago, used of course, and it was together. I have pondered the thought that the travel in a trailer had jostled the seal.
    And also thought this winter if I should take it apart and reseal it as I reassemble it.

    Is that a masonry fireplace, or Ye Olde Straight Pipe style?

    It's a Squire insert into a brick fireplace. The other room has an open fireplace. We got really lucky finding a house in our area with real fireplaces. Most are just gas on/off.

    I keep a small reserve of "pitch bomb" logs for extra cold mornings when I need to get the stove hot as quickly as possible. I try not to use them too often to avoid fouling the chimney.

    I've been burning some Poplar that I cut last spring (was leaning towards the garage) for a fast blast in the mornings. Burns like crazy, dumps heat, and doesn't leave a lot of coals in the way for when I load the stove to go to work.

    Lots of poplar here. Burn it quick don't let it sit around. Lots of heat, short shelf life.

    Meh. I don't use it as a primary since we've got a lot of maple, oak, beech, etc. around here that I'd rather burn instead. I split and mixed 1 tree into the back side of the woodshed this fall, and worked the other 3 up into stove length, barked them, and stacked them. Even if it dries out completely it'll still work fine for fast heat in the cookstove or as kindling, or even campfire wood.

    At this time of year, and in the fall, the wood stove is turned down more than during the dead of winter. So the fire can die down and have only embers to get it going again.
    This is the time for this amazing little tool. It takes the air you blow and funnels it down and reaches closer to the embers for getting a good blast for 'Firing Up' the stove.
