The stove is a Vermont Castings Vigilant 2310 coal stove, a mini modern base burner of sorts with an indirect exhaust path. I have one and heated my house this extreme winter for $5.78 per day!
The accessories on this stove (warming shelves and mitten warmers) are worth $200.00.



I went there and looked at the stove today. It was in a cluttered basement and appeared to have never been fired up? I asked about it's history and the lady told me that she bought the house 4 years ago. The previous owner had the stove installed and never used it. The current owner tried to use it but couldn't figure out how to get a fire going and gave up. There was about 4 inches of pea coal in the firebox with all kinds of charred wood and burned paper on top of the coal.

She said they tried using half a box of starter logs and all they did was burn and the coal never lit. Hmmmm wonder why? This made sense as there was no sign of fire every having been lit in this stove. There was no ash in the ash pan, no ash anywhere, just some signs of rust that was starting from sitting in a moist basement.

Sitting next to the stove on a pallet was about 30 bags of Blaschak pea coal. She said it had been there since they bought the house 4 years ago and never did anything with it. We started at $800. I offered $500 and we settled on $600 for the stove and 30 fifty pound bags of pea coal.

I will be pulling that dirty old never been used coal stove out of their basement this next week.

My wife is not as thrilled as I am right now. She pointed out that our 1895 vintage home is only 985 Sq Ft and we have three coal stoves now. I smiled and said that is true but only one will work when the power goes out. I don't think my logic had the desired impact.

One is an older D&N paddle stoker stove from the Schuylkill Haven Pa. company probably from the mid 60's. The manufacturer is long gone and appears to have been the forerunner or clone of the original Keystoker equipment who is still in Schuylkill Haven. It's currently sitting unused in the garage and needs a home and now the LL Econo 1 will need a home. Guess I better CL the 2 stokers quickly.

She did comment that IF we change out the stove she want's a proper hearth built so it doesn't look like a weekender afterthought add on. I told her WHEN, not IF, we change out the stove, I will put it on a proper hearth befitting it's long delayed cotillion debut with a proper fire in it's belly. I got arched eyebrows with that comment.

Yes it's time for some new tools because, as I explained, she couldn't possibly expect me to use OLD TOOLS while building a new and proper hearth now would she? She simply smirked and walked away. Again my logic failed me......

That's a nice stove Rev. Larry, I saw that one on my CL search tonight. I had a big problem with the attitude of the seller though, they don't seem to like coal but live in the middle of coal country???

You get some starter coal in the deal too, that's great. I would hold off on selling your other stoves until fall, you will have more interest and get a better price.

I guess your going to be needing a new avatar!

have fun with your new stove,

Congratulations on your new stove. That stove is just about the handsomest of modern stoves and will look great on the hearth you will build.

If you strip out the inner parts, which is not too hard it will get a lot lighter. The two inner sides are very easy to get out, the upper back and damper less so.

Congratulations Rev. Larry, you have one of the best stoves for heating you home. My home is only 1100 sq. ft. measured on the exterior. We had a bruiser of a winter and I laughed at IT and the power co. as the power blinked a few times. Mike

Two Interesting Cylinder Stoves On Maine CL

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Tue May 27, 2014 7:38 am

There's a Treasure Crawford (probably 12) for $250.00 listed on Maine's Craigs List.

It's #4489014911 and is in Oxford ME. It's a beauty, with back pipe, but is not a base heater

Also, there's a New Welcome No. 2 (again probably a 12) for $200.00

It's #4454507159 and is in Freeport ME. Can't see a back pipe, but it's also not a base heater.

If anyone's interested.

The Coral Andes was manufactured in 1912 by the Phillips & Clark Stove Co., Geneva NY

I happen to have a 1912 Andes Catalog!

The listing states:

"This low price Base Burner, very attractive in design and up-to-date in quality is all that any person can ask for in a base burner. The sizes are large. Every stove is a powerful Double Heater: and the prices, we believe, make it the most inviting proposition on the market.

No. 213 Fire Pot 12 1/2 inches $46.00
No. 215 Fire Pot 14 inches $53.50
No. 217 Fire Pot 16 inches $60.80

Every Stove A Double Heater"

This is a beautiful and powerful heating stove. Restoration costs would be expensive, with all the nickle to restore. That could be done later.

In my opinion, it's a very good deal, for a kind of rare stove.

Someone should grab it - I wish I could!

Andes stoves are the top of the line. The Art Andes of course is one of the most desirable mica type base burners out there. Even though this one is a few notches down in the Catalog, it's still an Andes which makes it high quality.
