Here is a high quality Base Burner that looks to be complete with all its parts and it still has its magazine. This one is reasonbly priced and is of a larger size.
click on link below to see it. If I was looking for another stove I would seriously consider this one. I would act on this as I don't think it will be there very long.

The tolerances on these stoves are very high. These things are amazing examples of advanced engineering. There is nothing crude about their construction. Even if the stove has all of it's original cement intact. It's over 100 years old. To paraphrase Emery from Antique Stove Hospital: Even if the stove was never used and still in its original packing crate. It still has to be rebuilt. It's not hard to do. It takes time and you just have to do it.

The cement deteriorates over time. It cracks, it crumbles. It's gasket material that needs to be redone every so often.

This stove looks like a good choice. What brand is it and how large is it. We want to hear all about it and help you with its restoration. We will help you with learning how to use it as well. It looks like a newer model from around 1910-1915. Congrats.

Nice one smithy. Seems to have all its' members and in good shape. A NO. 14 but looks like a No. 16? If it's a No. 16, you got a very big one.

Thanks guys i cant wait to get my grubby hands on this, will have to wait until next week,.."Motor City here I come" in the mean time i have ebay pics to show hopefully they will send me some internal pictures .I sent them one of nortcan"s pictures of the pot and they said it looked very similar so i bought it "thanks Pierre" !
and this is what they told me

HI! The firepot is intact as in "present and in one-piece" but it has 2 of the "fingers" missing towards the front. They look like they were broken off years ago when somebody dropped the casting on a hard surface, but perhaps it was cast that way, can't tell. If so, I cannot figure out what the gap would be for. The unit has never been used by us for heating, so I don't know if this would affect burning of coal. The firepot is round, about 13.5 in diameter on top and about 12 inches diameter on the bottom. The cast iron coal chute above it is intact, about 11 inches on top and about 7 inches diameter on the bottom. My digital camera is at work so I cannot get a photo right away.


:D !!

not really sure what size it is or anything this is what they said "Chicago Stove Works Coal Parlor Stove 1915 Chicago Stove Works"

This is a really good stove. It is a double heater and it still has it's magazine. The magazine will allow you to go for up to 48 hours on one fueling at a medium heat out put. If it has a 14 inch firepot then it can hold about 40-45 pounds of Nut sized coal and will be able to produce plenty of heat. Back then stoves were sized by their firepot diameters. The diameter of the fire pot determines how much coal the stove holds, hence how much heat output to expect from it. Some of these base burners had up to 22 inch diameter firepots.
The double heater option means that the stove is two types of stove in one. You have a Radiant stove and also a Convective stove. There are ducts inside the stove that heat air drawn in from the bottom of the stove and then it gets vented out of the top.
