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!

Looks like a simpler version of Randy's 516. And has the triangular coal grates.

Is that a crack, I see, in the top of the front frame - right above the loading doors ????

It looks like this stove is a much older stove than my #517. If the numbering system is the same on this stove as my series, it would be a 16" fire pot. (mine is a 17# pot) Good catch Paul, cannot tell if it is a crack or something on the surface. If the stove is not cracked or the grates warped, this is a very good price.

But this $2500 one only needs to be polished.

Any suggestions on what type of polish would bring that nickel back to life?

I got more photos from the seller, the grates are missing from this stove. I am not sure this model would have grates that would be easy to find. The new photos show the #30 on the stove, not sure how rare this model is???
