Very nice.  Those are nice stoves.  I like the glass fronts.  We put in a nice Vermont Castings stove in our old house.  I got it down in the basement, but I was not going to try and get it back out when we moved!  We have an "Old Timer" that was in the new house.  It heats just fine, but I miss the glass front and an ash pan.

Ive never had a stove. Jsut fireplaces that provide zero heat unless you are 2 ft away

They are work, but the exercise is good for me splitting and hauling the wood.  A good stove can be very efficient, and the heat is very nice.  It is hard to explain, but much nicer than forced air.  When I spent some time in Arizona, I was surprised at how many people had wood stoves to take the chill off during the winter nights.

The sun makes it fell a little better.

I bet...

I spend most of my time outside and in the patio... when its cold I use the little firepit in the middle of my patio table which is perfect as hand warmer. Never gets below 32 here though, maybe touches on 31 once or twice a year to add little ice. Usually stays above 45.

Vermont castings get way up there. Mine is steel. Buddy that thing really gets going around 650-700 degrees. The stainless steel baffle has burn tubes that rebutn the smoke particles. Doesn't hold the heat as long as cast iron or soapstone but it gets hot in a hurry.

Our Vermont Castings was nothing fancy, but I liked the end load feature.  It had a catalytic burner in it that seemed to be more trouble than it was worth.  Your SS baffle sounds much more durable.  The Old Timer we have now is 1/4 steel.  Nothing fancy, but gets the job done!

He sure looks rough.  Is his comb dead tissue?  It looks like frostbite I see around here.
