This is replacement steel baffle / throat plate for use in the Maid, Butler and Coachman MK2 multi-fuel / wood burning cast iron stoves we have sold for many years. These parts are also known to fit some Bestfire and Warmking stoves - check measurements
This steel part is put in the stove and sits at the top of the firebox. It keeps the fire and heat in the stove, but redirects the waste gasses up the flue.
Please remember that all new parts require seasoning - as you would with a new stove.
Please use measurements given to check if it will fit other stove models not originally purchased from us.
Maximum measurements are given below.
180mm to bend on short side
200mm to bend on long side
all measurements are approximate
PLEASE make sure you ALWAYS season / cure new cast iron parts as you would with new stove.
For best lifespan, NEVER burn wood and coal TOGETHER at the same time. This is what they do in foundries to melt metals and drastically shortens the lifespan of parts. Burn wood on a bed of ash (use a metal plate on top of the coal grate if it isn't a removable one) and coal / smokeless fuel on a coal grate with clear air space above ashes. Be sure to empty ash pans under coal grates daily and don't allow ashes to bank up under bars.
Coal grates, baffles and lining panels are classed as consumable spare parts.
