The Crawford #2 is all in the house now ready to be put back together and installed this weekend. (With a little luck!) First I have to move/remove the Woodstock Soapstone stove that the No 2 will replace. It is a 450lb BEAST of a stove that has served us well. But coal is the future in the house.
While looking at the Crawford today I am amazed at how deep the firepot it and the construction of the stove in general is amazing. 24 hour burns should not be problem. These old stoves are truely things of beauty and function. I haven't been able to locate a date of manufacture on the stove. If anyone out there has an idea about how old of stove this is I would love to know. I have googled for Crawford info but haven't found much. I think the stove is around 100 years old.
I am sure will be very happy with "her". I will post some pics this weekend.
