The fire boxes are built using 10 gauge plate steel.
All stoves are painted with Stovebright high temp paint.
All stoves accept either 3" or 4” stovepipe.
3" stovepipe can be ordered from Dickinson Marine out of Vancouver, or if you prefer double walled stovepipe, Cubic Mini makes 3" double walled pipe as well. If you plan on using cubic mini for stovepipe, make sure you order the 3" double walled stovepipe adaptor we sell as cubic mini's stovepipe is not a standard size.
4” stove pipe can be found at Dickinson Marine as well. Another option is to purchase one of the 4” x 6” stovepipe reducers we sell to use a more affordable and easier to find 6” stovepipe.
All glass is heat resistant, neo ceramic glass and sealed with woodstove gasket rope.
All handles are hand made in the shop using Cherry hardwood and finished with a shellac.
Since these stoves are designed to be used with a budget friendly 6” stovepipe, theres more potential for heat to easily escape out the stovepipe. The baffle, as well as damper installed helps prevent this. I’ve tested stoves with and without the damper installed and find it makes a very noticeable difference.
Dampers are available for stovepipes at most hardware stores but require a drill and a little bit of know-how to install. For this reason, and with how effective they are I decided to include them with the stoves.
No they are not. It’s important to know whether or not it is legal to install a non-certified stove where you plan to install it. It’s also important to note that if you have insurance at the location you are installing the stove that it will most likely not cover having a non certified stove installed.
Stoves ship from Vancouver Island via Canada Post and generally don't take longer then 5 business days to arrive anywhere in Canada.
Laying firewood flat and stacking pieces on top of each other seem to be the best way to get long burns. In that case, 7" for the small Auk, 8" for the medium, and 9" for the large Auk and Elk stove are the best sizes.
