Answer: 
It comes with a coil which I simply straightened slightly inserted in the door latch and then bent back to original shape and now the coil is mounted to the door latch and works perfectly.

Answer: 
It comes with a coil to pull door open safely but the latch itself does not have a coil. I haven't been burned operating my stove but you should always wear leather protective gloves while loading fuel or tending to your barrel stove.

Answer: 
There is always danger to a home from a wood stove due to the fact that it doesn't burn with a constant temperature like electric or gas. This stove is fairly large so I wouldn't recommend it for a mobile home. Unless you put it in the middle of a double wide you probably wouldn't have room to walk around it. You could measure your home. Barrels are usually about 2' wide by 3' long. And don't forget to Read More

Answer: 
I installed a grate in mine. It improves burning as the logs don't lay on the bottom and therefore get a good air circulation to aid combustion. You can buy them online but, I just wired together some #3 rebar into an elongated # turned it at an angle to get it in the door them laid it down. It keeps the logs about 2-3" off bottom allowing cool air from vent in under the logs.

Answer: 
You can place a grate in the stove, we do recommend lining the bottom with sand or firebrick. The grate is just an accessory if you choose to purchase it.

Barrel Stove Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good construction The parts are heavy duty and should work well for years. I can imagine the barrel will wear out before these parts will.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good It works, and works well. But it isn't a woodstove. Those who are use to the traditional woodstove will be a bit disappointed. 1: it doesn't stay hot like a real wood stove 2:it eats wood like a 6 year old eats candy on a holiday 3:you need to take the bottom pulg out of the barrel and put it back in yo control the air flowing in. The damper on the door doesn't do much. 4: you can't open the door with out flooding the place with smoke 5: everything will smell like smoke 6: it will be dead and cold in the morning 7: hard to keep the chimney pipe in the flu Don't get me wrong, I love it and it heats my little place well, but I want others to know what they're getting onto.

It would be easier if everthing was made right, the legs need a lot of grinding to make them to fit the contour to fit a barrel. One leg was broke in half. To much trouble get a replacment. Fixed it my self. I have ordered two more Kits , the door is worth the price. I would say if your good metal man and can weld to won't have trouble

The grate accessory that comes with kit fits a small box stove and is ridiculously small for a drum. The screws are low grade and easily round out. a lot of hardware was missing, like door pins. Feet did not fit barrel tightly, 1/4 space.

Wish the base flange that mounts to the barrel was radius'd to fit the curvature of the barrel better, but other than that it's as advertised. Went together easily. Haven't fired it up yet but I'm sure I'll be happy with it.
