Please use this topic for posting links to heating units for sale found on craigslist that other sites other members might be interested in. Please don't use the forums to post "hey look what I found for sale" topics.

On the other hand if you find something on other sites, have an interest in buying it yourself and also have questions about it feel free to start you own topic.

WOW ad356, you do have a LOT to learn about coal burning and coal burners!!!

Do a little reading in the Hand fired stove section of this site. You will find quite a few members heat there homes with antiques. Even some of the stoker boiler guys have base burners, just in case.

one of the most interesting things i saw was a furnace on youtube, it was called the iron fireman its vintage but not really an antique. i just didnt know if someone was using something dating back to the late 19th early 20th century to heat their home. how can you be such a unit is even safe anymore. i know they make modern hand fired units but then again they arent over 100 years old. i am also not saying that i dont like older stuff either, i just finished mowing my lawn...... with a 1948 farmall cub, and i have gone on two B17 flights, the B17 is a world war II bomber there are only around 10 that are airworthy. my wife and i are going to go on a trip to go on an excursion on nickle plant #765. that's steam locomotive, one of the larger ones built. its a bershire class. so yeah i love old stuff i just wasnt sure that a 100 year old stove was still safe to use. i wonder are the keystoker's stoker units going to last that long...... if take care of such a unit does it have the potential to last that long? if you could have a coal fired stoker that holds up literally forever, that one more up for coal and down for natural gas. while everyone is replacing their high efficiency natural gas furnace every 10-15 years you can still be using the same stove year after year. those new furnaces can cost $$$ and they are packed full of electronics thus have a limited service life. a stoker on the other hand, looks extremely simple

I'm gunna like your new thread Ad. But it will probably mirror the thread, "Pictures of your stove". Only yours may be geared more towards "Antiques", which should be interesting and enjoyable.
If you're asking if people use their "freestanding" antique stoves to heat their house, lots of members here do. But I'm imagining some are more "beneficially" located than others. A cellar mounted unit with ducting and registers would provide the most even heat distribution, but I'll bet some people have had success strategically mounting theirs around their home in the living area and are still comfortable. I know my living area stove didn't do well warming the floor. As for safeties sake, any stove runs the risk of carbon monoxide, antique or not, if not operated and installed properly. And the quality? Depending on the stove, has the potential to "far" exceed anything made in the past 30 years or so.

i know some stuff from years past just cant be beat. i still cannot get over how dependable my little cub is, i have owned it for 3 years and i am astounded how little i have had to fix on it..... durable, durable, durable and oh yeah and its durable. it mows 2 acres a week and pushes snow all winter long. i have been mowing all summer and i still have not had to add any oil since the last oil change. it sips gas, i can mow my 2 acres for a month on a 1/2 tank of gas. it has a 7 gallon fuel tank so i get really long run times. it has a C60 4 cylinder engine that's only rated at 12hp but its deceiving modern stuff does not have the torque, this thing can lug. i would drag a modern 25-30 hp lawn tractor all over town at idle, they are joke. the only thing comparable to it would be a sub compact and i know it will never last like a 68 year old international harvester

so does a modern well built unit like a keystoker have a chance of lasting 60-70 years or more? at least they arent very complex
