Hi everyone!

A friend of mine has had a Majestic cook stove complete with copper water jacket and bread warmer build in 1907 for about 5 years in his garage... he wants it OUT, and offered it to me for a 100 bucks. I think its a pretty good deal, it needs brushed and blackened... it does have some corrosion on it. He said it was never outside to his knowledge. His in-laws have one just like it and still use it today for heating and cooking. I'm after a small coal hand-fired stove anyhow for when the power goes out, to be installed in my basement. Are these things safe to be using at this age - I'm a little skittish of CO problems. I don't know if it could heat the basement either... do these cook stoves put out enough heat?

I has a lot of nickeling to be done... of which I wouldn't be doing, but our house will be decorated primitive and maybe this stove will give the wife her primitive look and me the sound mind of knowing we have heat, and can cook if the power goes out.

Love to read what you think... thanks everyone!

Hey Pret,
I'm not sure what condition your stove is in, but these kitchen cookstoves can certainly put out some heat. I have my grandparents kitchen stove going in my kitchen now and it is really nice. There is a picture of it on the pictures of your stove thread and I am going to post some more when I get a chance. There are a few places out there that will refurbish your stove for you as well - resealing, gas parts, nickleing etc... I took grandmas to the antique stove hospital in RI. I'd pick it up - you could always use it to heat your garage :D

I'll have to take some pics and post them. I think I"m going to buy it... I"m going to need some help getting it up and running though. I know nothing about coal - I will in a year or so... I'll need some direction in sealing it, getting some oval stove pipe, etc.

Thanks Jay
