"Fisher wood stove models are no longer manufactured in North America, and so they are not available in the states. Also, Fisher parts are not readily available, so people with older models still in their homes might have a hard time with maintenance if something broke.
Bob Fisher designed this wood stove in Oregon in the mid-seventies. The push for designing a new type of heater was from his own first hand observations. Then current designs were leaking too much air and needed a tight fit to the chimney. Adding new sealing and welding scheme, he then licensed the designs to twenty-five steel fabricating shops throughout North America. The Fisher Stove International Organization pioneered certain safety regulations that went in affect around 1980. in fact, they were one of the first companies to meet the standards engineered at both the Canadian Standard Association and the Underwriters Laboratories. Fisher stoves manufactured before this date do not meet safety regulations, and most insurance companies insist that the older model be replaced for safety’s sake.
You can recognize the early models from their heavy steel doors, almost furnacelike in construction. They were available with several metal finishes. Cast iron, nickel, or brass doors were available options.
Most of the models after 1980 do meet the safety standards, so they do not necessarily need to be replaced. However, you may want to replace your Fisher model anyway, because it could be very difficult to find parts. Also, approximately twenty years ago, new emission standards were developed. Older models do not meet these emission standards, and they can release a great deal of pollution into the air. Wood stoves that do not meet emission standards might be illegal in some jurisdictions. Today, some people consider Alaska stoves somewhat comparable, or even a knockoff."
