What is this stove?

PostBy: jackhartjr On: Sun May 12, 2013 7:17 pm

Hi folks my wife found and purchased a little stove today that appears to be for coal, it has what must be a water jacket with two pipes coming out of the rear. It says, 'Hot Spot' on the front and has what I assume to be a model number of, 185-180 on the top.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Here are two, I took in a wheelbarrow, the legs are off and the tops are not there, I have them, just not there in the photos.
Thanks!

Well, so much for that idea, it is an aspx extention and is not allowed!

We need to see photo's of this unit ("HotSpot" is such a generic term used for almost everything), I will private massage the admin here who will post in this thread how you can get your photo's loaded here.
we always love a good "what is it" investigation around here (its like a game of who done it and we all want to win!)
we equally love new members here...so let me be the first to welcome you to our forum ;)

Thanks dcrane! I simply took the photos with my cellphone, have nevver had an issue putting them in other forums.
I'm a member of several old bus and truck forums, we love it when someone drags some old relic out of a barn and we get to figure out what it is!
Thanks,
Jack

.aspx is server side file, it's not an image file. I have no idea why the phone would be trying to upload with an extension like that... It's probably using the incorrect mime type and since the phpBB uses extensive check on file uploads for security reasons it's being rejected.

Upload your file to this page and post the results:

It should say something like:

Hi folks, have been to Texas and back, sorry for no reply.
First, it is a 'Hot Pot', not a 'Hot Spot'.
I will take some photos tomorrow with my digital camera and post them here.
Thanks for the reply's so far!

Is this your stove on Utube? The guy in the video calls it a furnace, a fire place, a wood stove, and a coal stove. It looks like it is set up to burn coal with a spinner in the lower door. Can't see the grate in the video but it sure acts like a coal stove.
