I don't see how the grates are shaken down. The size of the ash pan would be my first concern with such a narrow profile. Coal creates a lot of ash.

The price keeps going up on this one.... (at least now there's a better image)

Thank you for the 'better pic'

It ain't a baseburner........it just has the backpipe! So anyone wanting a baseburner, look elsewhere.

I'm not understanding Don. If it has the pipe which not only exits up high, but also down low, wouldn't it have the lower chambers for baseheating? What's the purpose of the lower section of pipe? Where is the exhaust coming from?

The nickel plate at the bottom, just holds the pipe from falling to the floor. If it were a baseburner, the exhaust gasses would go where yours does.........around the firepot, and down aoround the ashpan and the exit the stove.

The stove pictured, just has the 'backpipe'. The entire length of the pipe will transfer some heat, but it isn't anywhere near the output of a baseburner.


Hope I made sense, but I doubt that I did.

I'm still not clear on the path of the gasses with a baseburner (thick skull). In a true baseburner, do the gasses go around the firepot (like within the firebox?), then down through the ashpan, then exit the stove (in a true baseburner do the gasses exit a the base of a back pipe or move back to the top before going out the pipe connecting to the flue?)

On a related note; could the pipe on the stove in the listing (Barstow) be considered an "indirect back pipe?"

If the spare set of 116 grates are good, and the "set" is all four triangular coal grates, those alone are worth at least $250.00 - $300.00 if you had to go out and buy them from a stove restorer shop, or have them recast. ;)

Underdog,
Yes.
The back pipes are divided in half, inside, by a vertical baffle plate that extends down almost to the base of the pipe, with a damper near the top of the baffle.

When in direct mode - the baffle plate damper is open - the gases can go directly from the stove barrel, through the damper opening in the pipe baffle plate, to the exit collar.

When in indirect mode - the baffle plate damper is closed - the gases then must travel down the front half of the back pipe, turn under the baffle plate, and travel up the rear half to reach the exit collar on the rear of a back pipe.

With a base heater that uses a back pipe, the bottom of that back pipe would open into a sealed chamber which is below the ash pan area. The pipe baffle would extend down to mate up with a baffle in that base chamber. In base heater mode, the gases would have to flow down the back pipe and around the baffle in the base chamber to get to the other half of the back pipe and then travel up the pipe to the exit collar.

If anyone knows of a video of one of these Jewel stoves fired up, I would love to see it.
I searched Youtube and came up empty.

There isn't much on "You-tube" for antique stove action. Speaking of that, I couldn't resist another run of Williams videos of his G6 in action. Very entertaining and inspiring, while chomping on a quick and easy supper of frozen pizza, B4 returning to the basement woodshop. Guess I should get back to it, and get these molds done.
Those Jewels are definitely lookers.
