That's an older model with the 3 separate windows. Not necessarily a bad thing unless it's so old that it has the single grate setup instead of the pair of grates. Single grate is no longer available.

yea...they make you buy a new stove now instead :mad: also worth noting that as soon as Harmon sold out to the devil the prices for these parts went through the roof! (replacement grate was $15, went to like $80 overnight!) :mad3:
thieving bastards I say!

I need some clarity on just what you are saying, Doug. Are you saying that Corporate America are REALLY a bunch of crooked SOB's who care nothing about the consumer??
I read today that Wally World is starting a Made in the USA initiative to bring jobs back to the USA. Holy horse reproductive organ!!!! Talk about the fox in the henhouse........

We need Larry to start a new category for those individuals WHO THINK THEY WERE BORN LAST NIGHT....because I know we might not be as smart as a 5th grader, but who the hell will fall for this line of crap!!!! We are sooooo intertwined at this point that it may pay to be to dumb to leave first grade.

Dean Harman was and is a GREAT guy.......how could they screw him over like this. ...Its like Hollywood running the White House......... :mad:

But yet it was Dean who had to sell the Company...
It was not his choice to sell but it was the only way out in order to survive...
Similar thing happened to Vermont Casting...
Former great "small business' gets taken over by big corp...
Former goodwill carries it for a short time...
then the company reputation turns to *censored*...
because the former company's goodwill got monetized...

I have one of those (at least it looks the same as mine) and it's not a Magnum. It's a ST8-VF8. One piece grate ... well, mine is in two pieces but it's not supposed to be ... and a few other minor (there are no "dots") and major (no takeoff collar to move the distribution air) differences. It's a good stove, but not a Magnum. It's kind of the model that they made all the mistakes on (flyash chokes off the stovepipe and nearly kills you), then corrected for the Magnum.

If anyone is looking at it and wants to know any of my experiences, please contact me.

*EDIT* Just looked at the listing again and realized that it's not too far from me. If anyone wants me to go take a look at it, I can do so.
