If so, Bricks are 9"x4.5" same as common wood stove/ coal stove bricks. If the grate isn't warped and the shaker still works, the only thing to worry about is the pressure vessel. If you can put water in it and pessure test it, great. If not look for any signs of cracks or leaks and it is most likely OK.
For $50, if it passes the above tests, I would RUN out to buy it. It's worth close to $50 at the scrap yard!
I paid $130 for mine, don't remember what I sold it for.
