Austrian Kachelofen Workshop with Richard Jussel
The Austrian Tile Stove Association shipped over a pallet of Kachelofen
material specially for this workshop.
Unfortunately, U.S. Customs did not like the fact that the wooden pallet
was not shrink wrapped, and refused
entry for the shipment.
MHA being the resourceful organization that it is, Tom Trout was able to
supply some Kachelofen components
and hardware from his own stock. The outer shell was built from
firebrick instead of Kacheln.
Richard presented MHA with the complete drawings for this stove, done to
the same standard of documentation
that is required for a professional heater mason in Austria.
