Invented by Bob Fisher when he realized that the open stone fireplace he had painstakingly built was inadequate for heating his home and fuel prices for their oil boiler were increasing. He got the idea in his head to build an efficient stove to keep his family warm and spent months sketching, plotting and planning his first Fisher Wood Stove.
Bob Fisher had some basic criteria that he wanted from his stove, and his wife supplied some of her own:
It had to be an airtight wood stove
Ventilation needed to be restricted and controlable with vents
It had to be able to keep a fire in over night
Carol wanted to be able to cook on the top of the stove
The stove couldn't smoke when the door was opened
The Fisher Stove had to last - this called for heavy duty steel and firebrick
Buyer will need to pick up in Siren, WI and move the stove out of the basement. It is very heavy and will required several strong backs.
