When the economy tanked all of the sudden people had gold instead of junk anymore .

I think it's even worse down here where people don't use coal stoves . They see one and think that Thomas Jefferson or Someone famous must have used the stove and that they deserve $1,000,000 for it ...

If I found a stove I thought was the one for me, I'd ask opinions here on the forum before I'd buy. Lots of knowledge here and the guys won't steer you wrong.

When I first came here I was very surprised at how informative the opinions of the members were . They actually have knowledge to back them! Unlike just about every other forum on the web. In fact I trusted the information from certain members so much I ordered my glenwood 6 and had it restored all site unseen by phone and had it shipped to me . I wasn't disappointed and everything those members said has turned out to be true .

What a wonderful group of people !

This is a bituminous stove...coal is less money, if you have acess to it and no neighbors. ;)

Old ad with no phone number. The stove would have to be looked at carefully of course.

That's a cute little Keystoker. I wonder what model it is? I have not seen an 85,000 BTU Keystoker boiler before. Looks to be in nice shape.

Could be, maybe the seller is just a bit confused about the BTU's.
