      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

wood stove in garage

Recommended Posts

i have an old wood stove and wanted to put it in my garage there used to be one in there so the old chimney is still there but we blown in insulation since and i wondered if it would be alright to scrape the insulation away from the pipe a waise and still use the old pipe or if we would need to run a whole new pipe?

First step I would consider is your insurance. My agent told me wood stoves properly installed in a house are ok. Not so in garages, because you don't tend them often enough. He said they would drop coverage for stoves in garage and outbuilding.

If the chimney present is in good condition, properly installed and maintained, and of the type that the insulation can contact, it would be fine. Best to have an expert consult your particular situation before firing it up.

Good luck, Brent

Dosn't sound like you have a chimmy, rather stove pipe.

The attic space and above the roof line should be insulated. You can go to the big building centers, pick up a pamphlet about installation of insulated chimney(pipe). It'll give you all the info you need.

As stated, check with your insurance company. I bought a house that already had a wood stove in the garage. Insurance company found out about it and threatened to drop coverage unless it was removed immediately. I called around to all insurance companies I could find and none would cover any type of wood fired heating device in a garage, period...

Good for me, bad for jerkin'm. grin.gif I bought his woodstove and love it...

My insurance agent visited my home and as long as I am up to code on the chimney, I am covered.

I have asbestos insulated stove pipe from the ceiling thru the roof, and it is not cheap, but it's worth it in safety. You will also need the necessary heat sheilds in the ceiling, insulation in the attic and roof. Find out what the codes are before proceeding.

I'm in that biz and can offer some advise.

First of all make sure that the pipe that runs through the ceiling, attic and roofline is a class a chimney system. It can be the solid packed insulated type or air cooled. The blown in insulation should be at least two inches from the pipe. This is done with an attic insulation shield, or you can bend a piece of metal flashing in a loop around it to hold the insulation away.

You have to be somewhat careful about a stove in a garage. If the stove is using room air for combustion watch out for flammable items stored in the garage ( gas cans, solvents etc.) If the stove has a knock out on it to hook up an outside air duct i would use it.

I have found insurance companies to be as different as people are. Dont accept one companies rules. There are many to choose from. Garages are little tougher to get insured with a stove. But do not ever accept an insurance company to not let you use a stove in your house if everything is put in per code. If they tell you that you can't, get another insurance company. There are many who will allow it.

One more thing. If the stove is UL listed there should be a metal tag pop riveted to the back with diagrams showing acceptable clearances to walls etc. If its not UL listed ... I would get one that is.

The code also calls for 18" elevation on any ignition source in a garage.

Does that 18' pertain to wood stoves? My impression of it was H2o heaters, furnacess etc. gas ignition for proper air supply. CO2 and some others settle down,Heavier than air.term ignition source?? wood stove manual ignition.Call the local inspector before instalation.

Yes, the 18" is in both the IMC (international mechanical code), covering both solid fuel and liquid fuel & IFGC (International fuel gas code) covering gaseous fuel. It has nothing to do with combustion air for the furnace or wood stove, it's because flammable vapors from gasoline are heaver than air. How they came up with 18", I do not know.

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
