saw this free stove on Craigslist:

I was thinking- it would be nice to have a low, controlled fire for 6-8 hou=
rs after I load my kiln without staying up. The chimney draw is not as good=
as with a standard liner going 20' straight up, but it could be compensate=
d with air control. As a bonus- I could weld a wheel kit on it and also use=
it to power a smoker. Anyone try this? Drawbacks?
