I wonder if the owner even knows - beats me - what is that ME testing label?????

Great winter game, odd shots of offbeat stoves. Any players?

If we could get enough companies to test stoves here, all that burning would warm our Winter by 10 or 20 degrees. :idea: Maybe that is what has been going on -- I know my coal usage is down about 1/3 so far this season.

:yes: :shh: don't tell anybody, the price might get jacked up. I had something similar in my log cabin in VT. An outstanding unit. I also had a lg. round oak parlor stove for the bulk of heating

That is a minature version of a water tube coil type hot water boiler. Depending on the controls it could be used as a steam boiler also. They put out an incredible amount of heat and chew up fuel like it's free. Only big draw back is that you must have a positive water circulation through the tube at all times. Any scale buildup in the tube and you restrict water flow creating a hot spot in the coil and bingo. Coil ruptures and you either have to pull the coil and replace it or try your best for a temporary repair. The tube appears to be stainless????? If so ka ching ka ching when you go to replace the coil.

At least there are bad pictures. Many have no name and no pictures, no dimensions and sometimes no price and no location.

I'm sorry that is due to a mild fall and you are too late, Al Gore has claimed the credit for that one or was it Obama, I forget now.
