Fred, I didn't put it together 'till I looked at the other links in your e-mail, I have one of your wood stoves, I purchased it from a fellow that was moving from the area. I've heated my home with wood only, for 43 years and this is BY FAR the best wood stove I've ever had. It cut my wood consumption by a third or more. The stove does everything your ad says it does. I've had people ask were they could get one, now I can tell them were. John Schoch

  Fred, I feel compelled to say that I am speechless over the performance of this stove.

There's nothing to compare it to, you are standing out there all by yourself.
  We ran out of wood while awaiting the installation of your stove. I have had to go out to gather my wood this winter, but I cut it much bigger, and I sure as heck don't split wood any longer.
  My wife dries the just washed laundry with this marvel, we still dress for our climate, but my vocabulary has omitted the word cold. Our teenage daughter runs around like this is the Bahamas, but I attribute that to other forces. This stove is absolutely amazing.  Jess              Sutton, Alaska

It's been a long snowy winter in Maine. We haven't seen the grass since before Thanksgiving and the two feet still on the ground will take awhile to melt. The stove has performed quite well keeping the house warm and the oil bill down. We have saved 1100 gallons of oil since mid November, so in one year we've more then paid off the stove. It looks like your not selling direct anymore. What kind of dealers are you looking for? Someone with a storefront and retail space - or more of a local representative that can handle questions, delivery, inventory?     Regards, Lee

I purchased a Seton Montana Fan top wood burning Radiant-stove last August. I have run it all winter here in Interior Alaska and the last few weeks it has been -40 to -50 (f) . I am heating a 45x41 x14 high aircraft hangar and an attached 24x24 apartment with a 24x14 bedroom up stairs. The stove works pretty well and does everything Fred Seton said it would do. I burn mostly birch firewood, however I have used spruce also. The stove is simple in design and the fire burns so hot that it makes little or no creosote. I have checked the chimney a few times this winter and it has virtually no creosote, only a light brown coating.
I load the stove in the morning at 6 am and it still have about 6-8" of coals and is still blowing hot air when I come home at 5 pm at night. It keeps the hangar in the 70-80's most of the day even at -40 and I have a fan that blows into the apartment.
My regular heat system is radiant floor heat and a Burnham V-15 oil fired boiler. It averages 10-12 gallons per day without any wood heat. I calculated that I would need 10-15 cords of wood to heat this season and at $225 a cord = $3375. So far this winter I have consumed about 7 or 8 cords of wood. I normally go thru 3000 gallons of oil from August to May at $3.20 a gallon=$9600.
This is not entirely accurate because I still use my boiler to heat my domestic hot water. I wish I had purchased a Seton wood fired gasification boiler and may do so in the future.
I have had lots of different wood stoves in the past and I while I can't quantify it , this Seton wood stove burns less wood for the tremendous amount of heat that it puts out.
Fred is kind of a crusty old guy to deal with , but others in the heating industry say he is honest and I tend to agree. I also believe he KNOWS his stuff. I would buy another stove or boiler from him in a heartbeat.  Mark, North Pole, Alaska
