Ok here is the new install of my Chubby. Just have to do a little clean up now and all set to fire up when it gets cold. Added a new liner in the chimney, raised up the flue a few feet to get better draft and added a barometric damper.

Very nice. A coat of Williams stove polish on the cast iron would really set it off.

Radius hearth is a nice idea.

The hearth looks nice - the round goes real nice with a round Chubby stove.

Ok the stove all inspected and polished up. I fired it up a few nights last week with wood to take the chill off the house. And lit a small coal fire in it Sunday night.
Everything seems to be working good. Brought a few bags of coal into the house today. I usually keep about 6 bags of coal in the closet. The rest I keep stored in the garage. It's going to start getting colder in the next few weeks and I'm already.
Thanks to Larry Trainer with all his help and advice I think I will have a very successful heating season.

He's asking $600-$900 for refurbished units on his website and $1000 for blower models.

IIRC, I paid ~$175 for mine and it needed to be totally restored....a project I STILL haven't finished. :D

Looking good CCB! The polish really works well.

JP , I hear ya. I too have several "projects" lingering around here too. One can usually find Chubby's locally in New England on Craigslist and Uncle Henry's for cheap money. I've seen many for $150 up to $600. Just depends on the shape I suppose. I wonder how the blower models work compared to a non?
