WTF!!!
Thats' the one that was on here about a month ago for $500!

I called about it and was third in line. Never hear back from the seller.

Nice look'in boiler. The only thing wrong with it is gravity, it's in the basement.

She sounds a bit per-snickity too. No outside basement access, if you damage something on the way out of the house, you might have a law suit!

Sure sounds like a challenge.....makes the extraction much more difficult. Sometimes it is best to pass on by............

My old back is only good for one boiler a week. Her deadline to have it removed is tomorrow, so I'll probably pass on that one. :D

Paulie

I spoke to her on 1/24. She had some kind of crazy deadline for unknown reasons then too.

Can ya still get parts for a GJ?

that stove has been around a while. "all parts available " but there is no sign of the sizable and critical Magazine that helps form and enclose the top of the combustion chamber.

about 3 hrs. actual road drive from me but not worth the effort for what is shown at the price.

might ? be one for Rev. Larry i fit's close enough for them to inspect.

otherwise i have had NO luck communicating to people that the item they are trying to sell is UNDER that cabinet and without pics of the stove casing, dampers, doors, fire pot, bricks, grates etc. they are displaying nothing of interest.

Yes, I sent Reverend Larry a PM about this stove, right after I posted it.

There was a Warm Morning 423 posted up by me for a $100. When I got the email reply it suddenly had become a Fisher wood stove. I had thought it would be something to bring along on my next trip.

Royal Stewarts Coal Stove

PostBy: Underdog On: Tue Mar 24, 2015 6:48 pm

This looks like a really nice stove. Seller lists it as a functioning/operational Royal Stewarts Coal Stove. The mica doors are beautiful and it has triangular grates. This sounds like a win/win for the right person. The missing front skirt could probably be cast from either of the matching side peices. The finial does not appear to be 100% but still there's something there. These stoves clean up very nicely and the cast base venting is a bonus. $150
