Very nice William. I would feed that stove the absolute best anthracite I could find.

You guys and your antique stoves :roll: makes me want one for my living room :D .... Trouble is that my living room is somewhat isolated from the rest of the house since it used to be a 2 car garage. So I dunno how I would circulate the heat thru the house. :(

Be careful, once you go base burner, you don't go back. If you have any appreciation of art, science and engineering all rolled into one package then you can't fail to appreciate them.

Here it is with all the doors open. It has a large dutch oven in the top. When Sandy took out my power for 5 days, I discovered how easily things can be cooked in these ovens. I made baked chicken, roast beef, spaghetti sauce, etc. These slow cook to perfection.

The stove arrived this morning. Me along with 2 others wrestled it off of the truck and into the house. It is a heavy sucker. This a heavy duty stove. The castings are much thicker and heftier than I expected. The swing dome is very, very heavy. This stove has an even longer, extended flue path than I expected. After the gasses go down each side of the stove, they then pass completely under the ash pan area, then up the back pipe. The bricks are all intact and quite thick. This is going to be a formidable stove. It has already taken dominion of the living room.
Here it is just after we got it placed on the hearth this morning. I sure don't want to have to move this thing again anytime soon.

Thanks everyone. I've never had the opportunity to examine one of the larger Crawfords so closely. The overall high quality of it is impressive and I feel fortunate to have gotten one in such excellent condition. Apparently it was stored away in a dry sheltered place and wasn't abused when in operation.

Ok guys, I think your hammering me...which is bullsh*t. I did update and said that I got a Herald Oak as I couldn't find a Crawford 40. It was the stove my parents had and I was going to continue to look for one as I'd need two stoves to heat this big old house. I made mention that my dad, who is getting older, was going to be staying at the house and I wanted the stove for him. Yes I did leave the forum for a while. I did, before I left, mention that I got the Herald and did get some great advice from you guys on here, I've thanked everyone, and still continue to thank everyone for their generosity. I did find a Crawford from someone who would be able to restore it this year, and it's almost done, but had some personal family issues that took center stage. My wife shortly after we got our Herald was diagnosed with cancer. It has spread considerably and with 4, 8, 12 year old kids at the time, I didn't know which way was up. I never intended to be a short term member, as I really enjoy interacting with all of you. I travel a lot for a living, had to change that job and care for my wife, be a dad and mom to young kids who don't understand why we don't do more things and wonder why mom doesn't want to do anything anymore. I promise any parent on here that has multiple kids, basketball, football, track, dance, the list seemed to go on forever, there wasn't any time in the day and I completely zoned out. I'm a great fisherman and really enjoy that, I didn't use my boat, quit fishing tourneys, quit going to car shows, all we did was sit at home and I just tried to be everything to everyone. I have checked my PM's from time to time, and never saw a message about it, and still don't have any message regarding a stove. Thanks, greatly, for finding one, but I did have my hands full, still have my hands full, and use this site to gather excellent information from some of the smartest coal burning gentlemen around. Your help has made a tough time easier. We would sit in front of it and watch tv or listen to jazz, blues was her favorite but she wouldn't listen to it as she thought she had enough blues. I will have a Crawford 40 and won't have a problem asking questions about it...if that bothers you, don't reply, but the cheap shots, are not classy, I'd expect that from other sites, not this one. Again, thanks in advance, for help most of you have given, and William, I never meant to blow you off...I was just really busy...I still have my hands full...just better at time management.
