Close the damper about two-thirds of the way as the fire begins to catch and coals start to form. As the chimney warms and the airflow increases, it pulls more heat upward and out of the chimney. This flow heats the coals and pushes air through the wood, increasing the heat. A stove damper is closed about two-thirds of the way as the fire begins to catch and coals start to form.

In the 1870s, Griswold began to manufacture skillets, pots, grinding mills and waffle irons. In 1873, the company was renamed Selden & Griswold Manufacturing Company. In 1884, Matthew Griswold bought out the interests of the Selden family. The next year there was a fire, and the factory had to be rebuilt. In 1887, the company was reorganized and chartered as the Griswold Manufacturing Company. By the 1940s the company was in financial difficulty, facing competition from manufacturers of more modern products while struggling with internal labor disputes and declining quality. Family members continued to own and run the company until 1946, when Ely Griswold sold it to a New York investment group and retired.
