How to use antique baseburner or Oak parlor stoves...

We all rely on our dear friend and resident forum antique expert wsherrick to help us decipher and use some of this lost art and to help with a knowledge base that almost did not last long enough to be recorded on the web.
Here are some new found instruction as prescribed by some of the makers of these wondrous designs... some go to the stoves to be listed here Antique Parlor Coal Stove Museum

Folks are welcome to add to either of these threads with photo's and information YOU may have access to they are never lost in the generations to come... I will post 5 here to give the basics, If someone has specific Stoves they need answers or directions/advertisements/manuals for please make your request and I can shuffle through some stuff.

These are really valuable and rare. This material needs to be saved in a place that people can get to it.

Oak Type Antique Stove Instruction Manual... Im adding one of the "Oak" type manuals for those who need, because I think these are much more common and sold my the millions (If we ever get an Antique Section the mod can separate these types into their own threads at that time and I will add more then).

very good job Doug.
I also vote for an Antique Stove Special Section. So if someone wants infos on antique stoves no need to search hours for it. And if someone is not interested to antique stoves, if that exist, just to pass over it.

The instructions on how to use the Round Oak are illuminating. They echo what many of us have learned through much experience with both types of coal. First you see here the concept of a multi-fuel stove and the different methods necessary to use different fuels. The brief section on burning Bituminous Coal and the cautions therein should tell anyone that a modern box stove is incapable of properly burning Bituminous. It can be done but not very well in a modern stove.
I have never believed that there has ever been a perfect all fuel stove. There are some good oak stoves that can come close, but; even then you had to have the various adaptations to switch fuels. Items such as hot blast ring for Bituminous and a register plate for wood burning. Back then you had specific designs for specific fuels and you could pick the one you needed. What a far cry from today.

Glad people enjoy them :clap: I have all I can do to get them posted to one web site (Plus Richard promised me some BBQ ribs and fine cigars at the next meet :dancing: ), I figure its a good thread for other who have stuff to ad their information also and that way people can learn about a stove (or at least "type" of stove they may have).

Here is some more to keep your interest, if someone actually has one of these units and can prove it... I will give them the originals if they wish to have them.

You learn something new all the time. Here is a Globe Style Base Burner designed for Bituminous. I've never heard of or seen one before, but; here is the literature for one. I wonder how well it worked. The instructions seemed fairly complicated. Here is another artifact from the lost Atlantian Civilization of coal heating. Amazing.
