This is carried over from a discussion on the craigslist thread here>>>http://nepacrossroads.com/about32763-450.html

I've got the seats lined up, there's woodchuck cider and Yuengling on tap. The screen is pulled down and I'm dimming the lights. It's time for all the pictures of your antique coal heat sources. It's a home slide show!! :dancing: :clap:

Come on in the show's about to start... plenty of seats right up front.
This is a home movie atmosphere :drunk: and I know these stoves are sexy as all get out, but let's keep the catcalls and whistles down to a low roar :dancing: :clap: :up:
But hey, throw us a bone and tell us the age of your stove or heating appliance and link to a restore thread if you have it. And this is for things like old 5 section boilers also!

Scott.. Not to pick on you my friend but I remember a time when you where very skeptical about using antique stoves. Now you have a full blown incurable case of "Baseburneritis". :D I thought perhaps the disease was somewhat in a re-missive state. Wishful thinking on my part! :D

I completely agree warminmn. I'm still in the "practical coal burning stage" but the desire that stove creates is what will push me into the cast iron abyss.
