Hi,i recently picked up an old Stratford Foundry No.14 woodstove. The fire box and ash doors in the front. It is cast iron in a metal jacket. Now for the question....In the rear of the stove.inside the jacket,is a square "tube" that goes from the top rear to about 1/2 way down. What is this for?.I,ve seen this before and I believe that it had something to do with a thermostatic damper,but this sove does not have one....Larry
