We have 2 King O Heat stoves. http://nepacrossroads.com/post366255.html#p366255 Here are a couple of pictures of ours. They are great stoves, and we have had them for many many years. I dont think that there are any more around, could check CraigsList or,,,,,Oh, I did see an ancient one on boston.craigslist. So if anyone here wants one, ours are not for sale, but there are a couple out there.
King O Heat was a copy of the Warm Morning. They are solid, basic stoves for burning bituminous coal. I have seen many of them. If you want one look in Appalachia. From North East Georgia to West Virginia. They should be plentiful there.
Thats interesting. We did notice the grates look a little different in the more modern stoves meant for Anthracite, but I didnt know why. Thank you for pointing out the origin of the King O Heats. Warm Morning stoves, yes, I found info right here on this forum.
Also found that grates for the King O Heat stoves are available too, so the next time we have a problem with the grate wearing out or anything, looks like I can purchase a new one. My husband was able to fix/weld or do something to the old one to fix it a couple of years ago.
Mme Janet, if I was you, I would buy a new grate ASAP, so if the present one breaks on the Winter's coldest day, you will have a nice smile . Available today doesn't mean available tomorrow so...........

For many antique stoves owners it's almost a reflex to have spare re-casted parts in case of . But having some principal spare parts for the stove is as good as having a spare tire in the car's trunk, new or antique car
