My dad is in need of a good bit stove so iv been on the lookout for him and I found this

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


Does it seem like a reasonable price? I think some of the hollow bricks are damaged but, Im sure I can make new ones from castable refractory. I am a metal worker so the ash pan and missing grate shaker handle are not a huge deal. To me the grates look good but I dont know what they should look like. Any input is welcome.

The bricks look to be in good shape and the grates are ok. You can buy new grates for it if necessary. I have a Warm Morning 523 which is very similar and love it. It will run 48 hours or more on a load and will really pump out the heat. They are cheap to buy, very available, and will burn hard or soft coal equally well. I wouldn't trade mine for a farm in the south.

Pretty hard to go wrong for $100, it looks like one finger is broken on the outer ring grate, just above the shaker handle, the firebricks look OK, definitely usable.

I'd go for it,

No, I looked at it last night and the bottom two hollow fire bricks on both sides were just gone that by itself was not a deal breaker but, the body of the stove is sheet metal and i had concerns about the seam in th botom of the stove and there was a crack in a cast peice at the top. I really didnt want to have to rebuild the whole thing so i let it go.
