Buckley Rumford Fireplaces
Record Time "Rumfordization"


Hi Jim

It's less than 48 hours since I picked your brain about rumfords. I started my project at 7:30 in the morning and completed firebox,throat and smoke chamber by 5:30pm.I built a small spec fire and its got a great draw along with radiating heat.

Finally a fireplace that can compete with those damn zero clearance whatchamacallits. This rumford will out live me and my future generations.

I pulled an insert out of my exisiting fireplace that was only 20 years old and it looked like swiss cheese. I urge everyone to stay away from non masonry fieplaces. The building dept should come up with testing and become more involved in the home inspection process.

Look what it did for the oil tank business - Oh, you have an oil tank in the ground, in the home you're buying, that could be a problem!

Well if we educate the building dept and the home inspectors of the world about fireplaces, I believe that anyone involved purchasing a new home would stay clear away from these imposter fireplaces.

Thanks again for all your help.
