Royal Stewart 171 Oak For Sale

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Thu May 15, 2014 8:42 am

Guys - Since I've just acquired a Glenwood Oak 50, that means I really don't need my Royal Stewart 171 Oak.

It's fairly plain and it's complete (including replacement finial). It probably dates from the late teens or early 20's.

It does have a small hole in the base pan. Emery told me he might have a replacement pan.

It's a really nice oak with pyramid grates, in good condition and a CAST revertible flu back pipe.

One great feature of these is the huge isinglass loading door, which is in two sections - the ladies love the glow!

I plan to price it reasonably - I want it to find a good home.

Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Chris

Hi Gene - Welcome to the forum! Lots of great history and info here, especially about the old classics, like the Royal Stewart.

I'm just looking to get my costs back on the Stewart. So, I'm asking $425.00, which is fair for as sophisticated a stove as this.

PM me if you have any further questions or comments. I'll be happy to send you more pictures - three is the limit per post on this forum.

Thanks for asking - Chris

I've received a question about the dimensions of this stove:

It's pretty large, with a tall barrel above the firebox.

Height of stove: 5 ft. to the top of the finial

Diameter of fire pot: 17 in.

Circumference: 53.4 in.

Depth of fire pot: 13 in.

height of the cylinder extension above the fire pot: 16 in.

It will be a very beautiful and powerful coal heater and will hold a lot of coal - not sure how to estimate?

That's big and should hold quite a lot.

I recently weighed the amount of nut coal that filled the firepot of my #6. It's 13-1/2 inch diameter to the brick lining at the top, 12 inch diameter at the bottom and 10 inches deep.

It holds exactly 50 pounds of nut coal when mounded up several inches in the middle like a full loading.


Roughly figuring the two volumes, your about double mine, so your Stewart will hold roughly about 100 lbs ?

:D

That big, it should be able to pump out a lot of heat while still able to burn a good length of time. If the #6 can go 24 hours on a load and two days when slowed down , with yours damped down, I'm guessing it would run for several days on a load of coal in the shoulder months.

You might have to tie a string on your finger to remember to put coal in it. :D

i may be off a touch but i think about 85#'s.

if you figure a barrel temp. of about 200* at a burn rate of 1# an hr. the math is pretty simple, 3.54 days :shock:
