Just talked to the guy with the face tile parlor stove up by Harrisburg. He's decided it's not for sale at this time but offered to take my number if and when he decided to sell it. The phone connection wasn't the best but I believe he said it was a Penn Garnet with a suspended firepot. It's been restored. the only thing it needed was new mica. He said he turned down an offer of $3500. He will have his daughter remove it from craigslist.

I talked to him a number of times two months ago. He purchased it from his grandfathers estate and is firm on his price.

Champion Oak 118 - $320


I called this guy a couple of times tonight and tried to set up a time to see the stove. I was trying to help a guy out to find a new stove. To make a long story short, he must have received a bunch of calls and decided he was going to raise the price. He already deleted his post. BTW, two of the grates are missing from the stove, he did tell me that.

The Hub Oak appears to be a nice, pretty complete stove. Since I have a weakness for Smith & Anthony stoves, I spoke with the owner Dave a couple of weeks ago and asked for better pictures. It's fairly close to me and I was set to go pick it up, but I changed my mind because it doesn't have any mica on the loading door and is a draw grate, of which I'm not particularly fond. Plus, the wife nixed it, which is normal - LOL. I reconsidered a couple of days ago, and emailed him - no response. He told me earlier he might keep it, or sell it to a friend.

The attached pics are of a mint one. Nice looking - I love the attached ornamental back pipe cover- fantastic castings!

I noticed the Hub Oak was an older ad, and I don't usually post those. Unless the ad includes a phone number. This is one such case.

It's a relist. Seller had it up a few weeks ago for the same price. I spoke with him and tried negotiating but he's firm. Too bad, it's a stones throw from me.

V and E Coal Stoker Boiler for sale. Call 717 -776-3234 . Will not respond to emails, Newville PA.

http://harrisburg.craigslist.org/for/4851151352.html

I spoke to this guy a few weeks ago. It was his father's, installed in the 1960's, good shape. It is a travling grate stoker, burns anthracite rice coal. He basicly wants it out of there and doesn't want it to go to scrap. I think $200 or $300 would take it, he said he will assist with removal.

Great deal for some one wanting to get into a stoker boiler for next to nothing. If it was closer, it would be in my garage right now!
