I know of no easy way to figure out the manufacturing date of a Van Wert; at least, in my case, it isn't on the nameplate, and, they've been out of business for years.

If the one in the ad is in good condition then it sounds like a bargain.

I looked at this unit on Sunday, but ultimately decided to pass on it. In retrospect, I wished I had taken a camera, to post a couple of pictures here. It just looked like it would be too much work to bring it back. There was a missing gear on the feed mechanism, not sure how easy those are to source.

How does one work on the "guts" of these things? The only way I saw to access the firepot area was down the pipe that is at the front.

I think I need to "cut my teeth" on something a little simpler, at least for my first stove. If anyone is looking for more details, let me know.
