Door handle latch handle knobs
Stove works great, however the I'm not happy with the non metallic door latch handle latch knobs.
I have only used this stove for a couple of days and both door handle latch knobs keep loosening up. The upper door latch knob just became stripped and fell off on the floor.
I'm going to fabricate a metal door handle latch knob to replace that knob and no doubt will be forced to do the same with the bottom ash door handle latch knob in the near future.
Those door handle latch knobs are cheaply and poorly designed which is another reason companies should be using American labor instead of outsourcing products such as this one to China.
Love my barrel stove! I assembeld a barrel stove for my patio and i couldn't be happier. Built another to take camping, all the heat needed but with two sections of pipe all the smoke is out of our eyes and dont go to bed smelling like a camp fire.
Nice Kit, Poor Instructions
Hi, just assembled this kit, very nice ki,t works great. But had to call Vogelzang because instructions were vague and illustrations showed the standard kit, not the Deluxe kit. Otherwise nice product.
One terrible flaw
I've been heating my house with this kit going on three years now. The problem is with dripping creosote. The stovepipe flange is designed so that female end (non-crimped) goes on the flange first. Stovepipes are suppose to be installed with the male end (crimped) facing down so that the creosote drips back into the stove and doesn't run down the outside of the pipe and subsequently burn off creating a nasty smell. You cannot insert the male end into the flange because its opening is too small. Bottom line is that the flange is made only for the female end which is just dumb because that's not how stovepipes work. Other than the flange I do enjoy this stove and try my best not to suffocate it too much and create creosote. Oh, and the gasket started falling out within a week of using it but that was not a terribly difficult fix.
Moderator Comment: Trevor, I agree that the pipe flange is a bit small. However, I have been able to get the male end into the pipe adapter. Brands of pipe vary a bit in their dimensions so one thing you could do is to crimp the pipe (male end) more than it already is. We have a tool for that at http://www.northlineexpress.com/stove-pipe-crimper.html Needle nose pliers also work ok in a pinch. Clamp the pipe with the pliers and give it a twist. You really should remove the pipe and turn it around so the crimped ends are all facing down otherwise you will have a mess and a fire hazard....Robert.

This unit works pretty well. The draft, however, was not designed to allow enough air into the combustion chamber. It works best with the door partly open, increasing the air supply. It's pretty hard to find a happy medium, but with some experimentation, you can find the draft amount you need. The damper is mostly useless without enough draft to the fire.
I have modified mine so I can keep the lower door closed, eliminating the possibility of coals falling onto the floor in front.
Ordering my Deluxe barrel stove kit was easy and it was delivered without any problems. I would definitly order from you again

excellent way to heat my garage.
Bought this and the double barrel kit as well. Wow! What heat output. Very pleased. Was quick to assemble with a few basic tools.
I got this for my garage and it's awesome. It's very easy to get going and it heats the building quickly. It was also very easy to put together. On top of this, the level of customer service I received from Northline staff was excellent. If you can get hold of free 55 gal drums try a local large scale bakery, this well worth the money, but definately spring for the double barrel adaptor kit too. It makes for a more efficent stove.

The instructions could have had some tips on how to center the flue and keep the barrel straight when marking for cut outs. Otherwise, this kit works ok.
The perfect door for my fuel oil tank maple syrup evaporator.

After some research on the product and comparing prices, I found your prices to be the best and the web site was very user friendly. Service and receiving of the product was great! The Vogelzang Kit was everything that it was suppose to be and is in use now! If ever needed again, I would purchase another. I check your site out for future purchases! Thanks
Great value for the money fits nicely and is real quality. You won't be disappointed.
works great,legs could be taller,all in all good deal, & puts out lots of heat.
Building the wood stove with your kit was great.I have it installed and it works great. I did make some alterations that made it much better.
good product for the money
Works fairly well for its intended purpose. Following the directions you do not get a good seal and closing all of the vents the stove still burns too fast. When I change it out I will add an additional seal.
We had one just like this one for over
15 years. The barrel just got wore out so thought we would get a new stove kit. Everything was great with price, and shipping. Thanks so much so glad we found you...
not perfect, but it works well. the gasketed door is nice. i put it on a pot belly barrel so the legs and chimney did not fit perfectly. it should fit fine a a regular barrel.
Questions on Vogelzang Deluxe Airtight Barrel Wood Stove Kit
- From just wandering at 11/11/12 5:47 PM
- what if you put this barrel on the vertical and on a steel plate with the door on the side and flatted a portion of the barrel to accept the door. Would this be doable???
- That would not be a proper installation. The barrel stove kits are made to be installed on the ends of the barrels.
