Re: Wood, Diesel or propane bulkhead heating stove?

I switched to stainless wood stoves back in 1979, after dealing withe constant shedding of rust from my steel one . No complaints. I use 1/8th inch stainless. I've built many for others ,who are very happy with them. No problem with heat transfer, 1/8th inch stainless doesn't keep heat inside. Where can it go? Stainless doesn't stay shiny long, turns matt black , but doesn't rust.
