Wow. The pics from the pros are so beautiful. So beautiful all.
I'll add as a beginner this year, that the antiques are incredibly giving and forgiving. I have heated with an old Tiger, and in time for -30 weather I added - I guess it's an antique - Glenwood 116. The house is full of heat in a generous way and all the learning and work involved is heartwarming. In fact this morning my son who sleeps with his window open because the double wall stainless overheats his room, called down, " Hey! Will you stop putting coal in that thing?" I'm so happy with it I am looking for a kitchen range. God Bless America.

It is Windy, The barrel is 154°, I just did a reload and it was only running around 250° anyways. I haven't had to run it oner 450° all winter to keep the house at 78° but its been a warm winter.

1st timer, too, and a HUGE antiques aficionado so I've really enjoyed seeing these beauties.

The big gorgeous kitchen stove, what was the component at the top over the range?

Anyway, here's my stove, again. It's a LEEDS, manufactured in Germany and I think it's from the 50's. "We" (he) broke the lower knob. Hurts my feelings and I don't know how we will ever replace it. We saw an identical stove on craigslist and considered buying it for the knobs. :)

I am so grateful to this forum (and all members) for the hand-holding as we learned that the stove is not a charcoal grill, so stop treating it like one; FILL IT UP, and to be brave and adjust the temperature down to eliminate the sauna atmosphere in our New England home.

I love it. It's saved us a fortune through the winter months! Here's an action shot.

Well you guys are PRETTY funny. Very often.
Hello Hunter seat, I like the warmth(look) of the ceramic. Maybe this company can help you as they imported some stoves similar to yours and may be able to direct you at least
WESO WOOD/COAL CERAMIC TILE STOVES
Distributed by "Ceramic Radiant Heat" company, a family run business in operation for over 28 years in the lake country of central New Hampshire.
CERAMIC RADIANT HEAT Co.
PO Box 96
Gilmanton-IW,
New Hampshire 03837
(603) 364-6776
[email protected]
(http://www.worldpath.net/~tkm)

Since 1978 they have been the sole importers of WESO Ceramic Tile Stoves in the United States and Canada, and have introduced thousands of people to the joys of Kachelofen -style warmth.
(The stoves are no longer imported but parts are available).
