1921 Arcoal Parlor Boiler

PostBy: Dan McCartney On: Wed Aug 22, 2007 2:15 pm

I will attempt to post a few photos of my soon to be installed, original Arcola (American Radiator Co.) boiler. Was claimed to have never been fired but survived as new-old stock, and I found no signs of soot or ash. Paint appears to be original as well. Just got it into the basement and installation will be ongoing this summer and fall. I will be happy to report the progress. Hope my photo is properly attached to post. Dan in Ohio.

Patent date cast into the unit says 1921, and the old ads for it that I have found on eBay also show the year of advertisement as 1921. It really is a neat piece of history and should be very much at home in my 1927 home doing just what it was made for, and has long been waiting to do. It pressure tested great and I have some fine talent lined up to help with what will be somewhat of a creative installation. See photo of grates.

She'll toast you for sure Big Chunk. Easy to build a firebox reducer in this model. You will need a steel or stainless plate cut to 13" x 12" and some firebrick to cut the box in half. She'll hold 80 lbs of nut coal in a full box.

There is a small edge the plate can rest on either side of the box.

Looks good, good luck.

It's always hard to tell from a photo, but just be sure that your clearances to combustable is all legit, that stove puts out a lot of heat.

PostBy: bigchunk On: Wed Sep 05, 2007 9:42 am

the stove was put in by the Harmon dealers installation crew. The service men did all the measureing to the specs that the stove required prior to the actual purchase of the stove (free concelation) in terms of how much stove pipe was going to be needed and what kind of stove pipe and the clearences that the stove required, the chimney as well. That is also how the quote sheet had been developed itamizing the cost of materials and with many years exsperience being harmon dealers i know the stoves instalation is legit. it is hard to see the depth with the straight on pic that was taken, the baro metric damper cant be seen. Another pic will be taken at a different angle . i recomend anyone that is going to buy a stove that will burn wood or coal to absolutly have a pro install it for safty measures. safety comes first!!

My Keystoker Koker

PostBy: watkinsdr On: Tue Sep 18, 2007 8:51 pm

Installed the Keystoker Koker on Thursday 7/26---finished the custom duct work installation on Friday 9/14---next project is plumbing in the domestic hot water coil.

No more "anxiety attacks" when the outside termperature is -10 degrees fahrenheit; and, the propane FHA furnace runs continuously for days.

Current propane cost per gallon: $2.00---heating with coal---PRICELESS!!!
