Stove Price Advice?

PostBy: jgl1962 On: Mon Sep 09, 2013 6:14 am

I need some help in putting a selling price on my Alaska Stoker.


My parents are selling us their 2 yo Keystoker so I need to come up with a fair asking price for our stove.


Its an old Kodiak Stoker with a wide sheet steel body, shaped like the cast console. Has bottom rear vent.


I have converted it from tri-burner with a Dayton combustion blower, has 4yo grate and 2 yo stoker motor we also have 2 ash pans for it. I put all new gaskets in when we got it in Fall of 08 (I think).

I control the fire only by adjusting the stroke didn't have a rheostat and I had planned on a Coal-Trol at some point.


Glass is cloudy never be able to see more than the glow. I am going to paint the stove gloss black vs the flat that it is now.


I want to ask a fair price for it without being greedy or giving it away. If this Keystoker didn'tcome along I would keep it indefinitely.


Anyway I'd appreciate thus groups thoughts on a value.

Thanks

Jim

Can't help with the price, but I'd surely keep the stove flat black---not a big GLOSS fan on any stove--

Last year I paid $1100 for my 1994 Kodiak, which came with a power vent.
It was down in hand dug basement, inside was rusty as all hell inside but it cleaned up nicely with a wire brush. I agree with Fred, Flat Black is the way to go.
