Meatball,

Fantastic! Emery has been in this business for quite a while and he certainly knows his stoves. Congratulations on the stove and there's no doubt that a baseheater/burner is The way to go with a coal stove. What sized stove is firepot wise? Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Best of luck with it.

You can rest assured that what Emery told you was totally true. I hope you post lots of pictures and let us know how it performs. Once you get the Base Heater you will have moved to coal stove Easy Street. You made the correct choice and you will not look back.

Yep, I'd say that stove is going tp perform pretty well for you Meatball. It's right about in the middle size of the cylinder heaters. But the fact that it's a baseheater makes it that much more efficient. Can't wait to see some Pix.

My ears itched and I could tell someone was talking about me.
Monday my son and I traveled to upstate NY and picked up this stove. It is a model 76, 1888 P. P. Stewart base heater that came from an old general store.The store closed back around 1950 and no one has been in the building since then They must have run it pretty slowly because the insides are just about perfect. I don't have anyplace where I can light this beast but I will put it in my work area so I can look at it while I work. The quality and inovative designs of the old timers continues to amaze.

Wow Emery! That is an absolute beast! It's huge. What size fire pot is in that beauty? It also looks like the jacket is extended too? What was the rationale for the extended jackets? Just more area to radiate or was it more? It's really a stunning piece though. It's towering over you and It's not even on the base!

That is one of the biggest stoves I have ever seen. There was one like that back home in Tennessee in the Store. It was an old fashioned store that was competely original from the day it opened in the 1880's until the day it closed in the late 60's. It even had the original regulator clock with a liver cure advertisment on it. I am old enough to remember dirt roads and mules pulling lumber wagons to into town. This was in the 60's modernity didn't corrupt the rural areas of Tennessee until the 1970's and even later.
The stove was a giant cannon heater with an extension barrel on top. I believe it was a Glascock Blue Ribbon Cannon Heater. It was much taller than a person, well over 6 feet tall. It kept that drafty old store very warm on a diet of Bituminous coal. There were chairs placed all around it where the men would sit and solve all the World's problems. I wouldn't trade those memories for anything.

That huge stove was on Craigslist for three weeks. I asked to buy it in the beginning and the lady said it was too far to drive and would not sell it to me. After three weeks she called on a Sat. night and I promised to be there for breakfast on Monday. I was and we bought it. No one else would buy it even though the price in the ad was $355. I wonder if that had to do with the economy or is it just too big to use for most folks.
The extra can on top is for radiative area. It was an option on many stoves. The Our Glenwoods came through with a double can if you wanted it. I have never seen one. Most of the oaks had extention cans as an option as well. The early Glenwood oaks had extention cans as an option as well. This model is the second or third series P. P. Stewart base heater. the first series has a round bottom and a cast cup on top. The later series has 4 windows in the door instead of three.
No secondary draft on these. Early stoves don't have secodary air control BUT they do have lots of small holes in the mica on the front door. That lets in air to burn off the methane when the stove is lit. It also keeps the mica nice and clean. My son uses a similar but much smaller stove and when it is lit it will form a ball of blue flame 3-4 inches inside the mica windows. They had it all figured out long before we had computers or bureacrats to tell use what to do.
