Hi cbd.

I think those rectangular box stoves are better suited to wood than coal. Maybe others have a different opinion? http://ashtabula.craigslist.org/atq/4369206771.html

There is another stove on the Ashtabula Craigslist that might do better with coal, a Red Cross Oak 318. http://ashtabula.craigslist.org/atq/4440539051.html

Good luck!

I have a 316 Red Cross oak and it is a big stove. very well made. I had to recast the pot, check it out good ..they did not brick them . very good price if the pot is not cracked. looks like the dome and finial are missing, you could find those parts in time. good luck.

The rectangular box stove pictured here is definitely a WOOD ONLY stove. It is also meant to heat just one room. This stove is also very, very old. It dates from the 1850's. It's missing it's finial.
The Red Cross Oak is a high quality stove and will be a power house heater. It is primarily a coal stove and if all of the innards are there, it will do well.

The Oak stove with unlined fire pot will work fine at high heat settings, much less good at low heat. Stack temp will be higher without indirect back pipe.

My advice is to wait and buy something in better shape and design.
