I bet those jewels put on a great show. Must be why everyone wants an arm and a leg for them. Does anyone know the performance of these? Any members have one of these stoves?


Very similar to my Garnet and after two weeks of using and I am totally in love. I do prefer the NE foundries they just appear to better made.Get the biggest firepot you can afford, make sure it's airtight and get used to a life of comfort. They are just staggeringly good.

By the looks of the stove and storage room, back room, basement etc, something tells me this stove hasn't been fired in quite a while look at the dust on it. I would start at 6 - 7 hundred. It's the only way to find out if the seller knows what they have.

$1200 for a stove with all those missing pieces that you will never find, I can't wait to pass on that one. Be unique, be special, join the "I have a partial stove in my garage/dealers yard" and I just know some century in the future I will complete it.

Yes, burn the minivan and put wheels on the stove. I can contribute a 2004 Buick Rendezvous with a perfect body but needs head gasket and hence a new engine to the bonfire. Any other 10 year old GM cars/vans can be added to the pile. It seems that whenever I see a car on fire beside a road it's a GM product, so I know they burn well. Back on thread :mad: sometimes it's just too hard to find replacement parts and I suspect this is but one example. Most of the time just buy through a dealer unless you have special skills. Most think they have those skills but in fact few do............... I need to phone Wilson, I have more wacky ideas. :D

Wacky ideas ????? With Wilson's help you are going to turn the 04 Rendezvous into a baseburner ? That should heat a sizable building !Keep us posted . toothy That $1200 Andes will take a very dedicated person with lots of $$$ to ever get it heating.

I saw this ad for a Franco Belge on the Reading, Pa. Craigslist. I don't know a lot about them but thought I'd post the link here.
I think this is the Normandy model? Maybe good for one or two rooms?

Ad says Dryville, which is about 6 miles South of Kutztown or maybe 18 miles NE of Reading, in Berks county
