PostBy: crocker On: Mon Nov 30, 2009 10:42 am

Hello since being recently introduced to burning coal and finding this forum, I have decided to put a coal stove in my garage. So I have been looking around for a cheep stove that is in good condition to use, I found in my area a stove that I am seeking advice on it is a Nashua model NC2 its about 30x30x 30 , it has a blower mounted on the back , top flue outlet 6'' , firebrick lined and seems to have a reburn chamber design, sealed latch locking door type with glass ,2 draft knobs in front , Does anyone know anything about Nashua stoves it seems to be built very well and I guess from the 1970s. thanks for reading

The link above that povided by WNY (Thanks), Shows the stove and Specs on the 4 models they produced, but still wanted to know if someone out there has had one or knows about these stoves . the one I looked at was a coal model NC-2 , I know now from the specs WNY posted in that link the stove is capable of doing the job of heating my garage ,but before I commit I would like to here opinions are experience with this brand.

I've owned and burned a Nashua Coal stove NC-1 for over 30 years..best little coal stove going. I've had to rebuild the firebox, replace the glass in the door(any stove shop can make a replacement for you), and replaced the pipe a half dozen times make sure your install a damper on the vertical smoke pipe 1-2 ft from the stove outlet..coal stoves should have dampers in the smoke pipe. It holds a fire for over 12 hours..with GOOD QUALITY coal. If you can get the stove cheap and it's in good shape...go for it. It was, in it's day, very well made solid stove.
