This old thing was lurking under a pile of stuff. At last I think I have found a stove that CN can restore. I have a caterpillar off it's tracks, 12 horse stalls to fix, roof tiles hanging off and a thousand things that need fixing. I don't have the skills or time to fix myself a base burner.. OK, OK, it's only an indirect pipe so I guess I am not going to be a young skywalker (or will william make an exception for me?). I wanted pretty windows so I could mindlessly gaze into the fire. Let me just open the door and see whats inside?

Wait a moment, I bet it's a Emery rebuild - yes? A Stewart 270 Oak of course but then you guys knew that. Fuller and Warren 1907 or so. OK, I will be kind and take that pile of junk off his hands. So 4 years in coal college, did I pass the final exam?

See what happens when you shovel out all that manure? Once you take it apart and rebuild it, it should look pretty good.

It might be some sort of fungus. You should have a good supply of dried out manure balls by now so i would recommend filling that stove and burning them to sterilize everything.Wear gloves.

A little look at this mornings conversations in the CN household...

Wife(W) ...... Why did we need that thing, spring is nearly here
CN ...... Errrrmummmm, but you see we needed it
W ...... That little Jotul 507 did just fine this winter, this thing is huge
CN ...... Errrrmummmm, but you see we needed it
W ...... what the hell are you now going to do with the Hitzer in the barn
CN ...... Errrrmummmm, but you see we needed it
W ...... so another complete waste of money yes....
CN ...... Errrrmummmm, but you see we needed it

You get the idea. The farm is huge (by East coast standards) and three weeks ago the HO tank started sucking some sort of black c rap that wrecked the filter so coal is - it NO MORE HO PERIOD - READ MY LIPS and I need to find a use. I could stick a red light in it..... oh, heating? but I have the AnthraKINGS. Holy c rap does this mean that I could possibly be addicted?????? Say it isn't so.

You did very well for your first stove purchase. A Stewart Oak is one of the best and the indirect back pipe (if you have been keeping up) will greatly enhance the stove's performance.
I have a friend who is looking for a stove and I almost broke down and bought this one for him. I'm very glad you've got it though it takes away the temptation to give these as Christmas presents to friends.
Now you have to be very careful in moving this thing. This is the best way to do it. Get some boxes, lots of packing material and take them with you when you go get the stove.
Take off everything that can be removed such as the swing top, skirts, all detachable trim, all doors, ash pan and grate. Pack them in the boxes you brought.
Now the stove is much lighter. It should be carried upright, but; if you have to lay it down, you must have a comfy, soft bed of old blankets or whatever to protect it from shock. You MUST protect the bottom of the stove from shock. Break the bottom plate of the stove and it is ruined. If you lay it down horizontally you must not allow any weight or pressure on the barrel to bend or crease it.
It's not as hard as it sounds, you have to use your common sense and plan a little ahead.

Now as far the wife is concerned. Once she feels that soft, bone warming radiant heat off of this stove and how beautiful it is, she will come around. There will be no comparison to how the Stewart operates and performs to the other stoves. It will be quite a pleasant revelation to all concerned.
Or you could put it to her like this; "It's either old stoves or other women, take your pick." See how well that goes over. :D

Thank you William and I am going to take your advice. Other women? Well I thought about it and then I looked in the mirror. Any woman that would want that sight I would not want anyway. I decided a more practical approach to happiness was a new stove.

WOW William, can I please be your friend ? I'll sit around and drink your booze in the front of the fire. I'll even listen to Louis on the 78s and wait until next XMas. I have a few records of my own - Django, Basie, old trad jazz bands etc., I had no idea it was so easy.

Coalnewbie, don't worry, first time I showed photos of the Sunny to my wife, she got scared from the stove. Really, but like Will said, after a few fires warming the place... the Sunny was accepted. Wife needs some heat before smiling :lol:
Now she loves the Sunny.
You got a vry nice stove.
