How to buy a stove kit in the UK.
by David Pearse
I wish to find a company that will ship a barrel stove kit to England, as I wish to build one, and as far as I know, no stores stock them?
so help please ! The stove is for my workshop in winter, so ideas please, Thanks David
Following your enquiry I've just spent a fair bit of time looking for barrel stove kit suppliers here in the UK but haven't had a positive response from anyone yet. I've contacted the manufacturer to see if they know of any dealers willing to ship to the UK, but I suspect they may not have any at present.
There are ways to get around not having a US postal address, such as setting up an account with Borderlinx, or a similar organisation. You give their address when you order, and they arrange shipping on to you in the UK. It does come at a cost though.
You are looking for "Vogelzang" - they also make ordinary wood stoves and their main site has a selection of accessories to complement the basic barrel stove kit. For example they have magnetic thermometers to check the temperature of your flue, and a hot plate that can be mounted to the top of the barrel stove - ideal for keeping a brew on while you are working!
I'm going to keep looking and I'll add a comment here if I have any joy in the next few days. If you succeed yourself it would be great if you could do the same.
