Thanks for all the great comments fellas, and for all the help the forum provided. I enjoy reading all the stories, comments and information about all the different antique stoves. I will cut my teeth on heating with the Stewart Oak here and maybe some day move up to a base burner but for now I am tickled to have this wonderful old Beauty heating my home. I just wish I would've gotten the wake up call about 15 years ago. We'll better late then never I guess. Winter just got a little more enjoyable.
