Finials are pretty much for show. A fancy cast iron elbow is unusual. Either can be pricey to replace.

I'm curious as to the oval opening in the top back of the stove. Looks like there is a cap there or something to close it off. Is that an alternate exhaust point or something else? (As in "top exit" or "back exit")?

What ever....... Looks like you've got a real beauty there!

Thanks dhansen,
Yeah I'm petty sure that oval opening at top rear is for a secondary heat transfer source. That piece setting there in the opening opens and closes.

This is a midwestern stove no doubt. Don't know which company made-yet. It looks like a high end one.
I love the bulls eye windows in the loading door.
This looks like it is a Hot Blast stove. The slits in the fire pot look like the openings for heated secondary air, hence; this stove was designed for Bituminous if that's what those are.
It will burn Anthracite very well also.
The collar in the top rear of the stove is a register for the exit of hot air. This is a, "Double Heater." That is, it takes in cold air from the floor and heats it as it rises around the fire pot and it is then sent out of the top. You could duct this hot air to an upstairs room if you wanted to.
This feature combined with the large radiant capacity of the stove will produce vast quantities of heat. These are heat making monsters.

"Double Heater"......... wow. Neat feature. William, a couple of posts back uggabugga posted a link to the Round Oak Stove Company.

Wow,
Thanks a lot for your comments wsherrick, I really value your input. By the way congratulations on the Crawford! It looks awesome. Wow I'm really getting excited about the #32 after reading all of your comments. I can't wait to get it home and cleaned up and hopefully installed. I know it needs new mica, is it relatively easy to replace the mica windows in one of these stoves? Also I will want to clean it up and was wondering the best way to tackle this chore without doing any damage to the stove. I will post more pictures of it as soon as I get it home.
Thanks

One other question,
How in the heck do you guys load these stoves on to a pick up truck to transport and do you have any ideas that would work best?

Almost always I have gone alone but the seller is usually able to help a bit as long as you don't expect too much.

I have a Dodge Caravan and I have cut down a sawhorse to the height of the side door which is much lower than a pickup. With two 2x6 planks about 6 ft. long as a ramp I am able to roll the stove up on a hand truck. Usually can get a little help rolling it up. The stove stays on the hand truck laid down in the van and when I get home I roll it down the ramp alone.

The last stove was a Vigilant and I did have help along. Stove weighs 400 pounds even with stripping off doors and whatever else comes out. A hand truck and ramp make all the difference.

The antique stoves of your pattern are relatively light. Obviously you will strip off doors and trim and you will need help in lifting it off the base. I think you will be under 200 pounds at that time. Hand truck, padding, rope to tie to hand truck, and ramp or helper to lift onto truck preferably both. If you are strong you can manage alone 200 pounds on stairs with good hand truck. the last stove I moved upstairs was over 200 pounds and the oil man gave me a hand but I could tell he did not need my help to do it.

So plan and try to get help. Backing up to a small bank if available can help too. I have loaded and unloaded my 42 inch lawn tractor alone that way with the help of some planks.

Thanks for the info Franco b. I have a hand truck and moving quilts and straps so I guess I'll make up some ramps, strip it down as much as possible and go from there.

Clever is as clever does. You can see a lot of planning there and look at all those wheels on the dolly. Even side rails on the ramp. And boy was he lucky to have that bench just the right size when turned on its side.

So planning is the answer. I used to watch the riggers move multi thousand pound machines onto flat bed trucks. Long ramp with several sets of sawhorse supports, pipe rollers and block and tackle with rope to pull onto truck.

The base plate must be protected from shock at all costs. The base plate is a critical part and if it gets cracked or broken, the stove is useless. They are best transported upright and securely fastened down to prevent any movement.
Make sure you remove everything that is removable including the doors and the grate.

Hey dcrane why is the elbow and finial worth $$ and does that finial thing on top have a purpose?


because people collect finials (wealthy attorney and doctor wives love em')... they don't want the stove (they simply throw them in the garbage and burn oil).
the elbow is decorative cast iron and its the first part someone brakes (its interchangeable to other stoves).

@Nortcan... WTF is that :eek2: Isn't that the first Atomic Bomb created by the "mad scientist"? :fear:

Hummm, DC, your last secret mission had some bad effects on your mind :D
For your personnal info as a future Antique stove museum owner, here is a short 101 demo:
1: the van is a Chevy., seen on the right
2: the thing with dozen of wheels is a trolley
3: the BLACK thing is a 1874 Baltimore Heater, base burner, Sunnyside , 16" F.P., burns nut anthracite, more than super efficient and............can challenge easily any competitors. Not just a déco piece ...you can see more détails about it on a short thread I made :lol:
