Hello...

I "think" I have gone thru all the posts I could find on this subject but I haven't found what I need.

I just yesterday got a dbl.door fireplace wood burning insert. It says "Timberline" on the front with a mountain scene on it.

From past posts; I understand the company is now out of business. But, I would like to get some info. about the company ~ i.e. my new (old) insert, about how old it is?, how I may get parts, accessories for it? I need knobs and a / the surround for it.

Any and all help / info. will be "much" appreciated. :)

You are correct about the Timberline Company. They were in business for about 20yrs in Winchester Va.

I was in Winchester Va a couple of weeks ago and went into the Vistor's bureau. I asked an older gentleman who was behind the counter if he knew anything about the Timberline Co.

He verified that yes they did have their plant in Winchester and about 10 yrs ago went out of business. He said the insert was very good. I have to agree. I went to Winchester around 1977 and purchased one.

I still have the stove and it works well.

Mine came with wooden handles which I replaces with flexible ring like handle with spaces in between each ring ( for a lack of a better description.) I don't recall where I got them only that I replaced the wooden handles after a year or so. The newer ones are a lot cooler.

PARTS> I don't know where you might get them but I am sure someone out there has parts.

Perhaps you might want to call the Visitors Bureau in Winchester Va. It is right in the middle of town. Town is not that big.

Perhaps the same gentleman that I spoke to would be there and could perhaps give you some help.

I've had my timerline two door fireplace since about 1993. It's not very high tech & there's not much to it parts wise. It has wood handles that've held up well. I painted white snow on the mountain peaks and tree fronds. I fabricated my own damber and fireplace baffles for installation. I fabricated front baffles fitted to the edges of the fireplace using that light gage mesh made for screen doors. You can cut it with sissors but it's heat resistant and allows air flow around the box.

Sorry, I don't know anything about the company or where to get parts. It'd probably be easier to just have them made or adapt something.

Thay are one of the best air tight stoves for wood. We had the large wood stove and heated a very large 5 bed room home to a comfortable 75*. When properly tuned and knowing your stove we can load our stove tight and load it every 12 hours. themasonryman@yahoo.com
