Radiant Home Nice and Rusty

Radiant Home Nice and Rusty

PostBy: Wren On: Sat Feb 25, 2017 4:17 pm

I have bought this after watching it for a while and the man is very nice but said he was thinking of putting it in his garden as a decoration which is a nice idea but I'd like to use it one day and there is something about it I love even apart from having read about these stoves on this site before I happened on it.
I won't be posting so much here because I suspect that this will take time to restore and I may have to find a place willing to do it but wonders never cease and all that
I included the photo of it after my daughter cleaned it up. NOT funny. The clean one is a photo I found on Pintrest of all places. Very similar if not same. I am full of hope and am reading and rereading as much as possible. Some of it sticks.
The very funny story dcrane posted with historical docs made me love this Germer make- a story about a family going out to sit on the fence until someone went by who knew how to make the stove burn cooler.

I think 622 Radiant Home Force Draft. The parts for the grate look like yours to me.

I'll be slowly on the look out for a grate for the anthracite. I'm thinking maybe not to take too long after all in case the prices for work triple over the next few years. :shock:

An old photo would be interesting, although to be used it wouldn't have to be done right away.
I'm guessing the skirt was but I'm so used to the rust I have trouble with other possibilities.

Unless you do like some have and use a bright silver paint where nickel would have been. Does dress it up with the accents, compared to just an all black stove paint job. ;)

And that double heater feature can pipe heat directly to an upper floor area where the stove heat may not reach as well by natural convection just by going up a stair well.

Seriously!!!??? I did not understand that part. Unbelievable. Coal inspired great minds. We are feeling a little inspired at home here ever since the Tiger. There's something about looking into a cauldron full of burning coal.

Yup. Stoves with what some people think is a second flue pipe are actually "double heaters". They can heat one space with the stove, and another space with a duct from the stove.

The upper outlet is the exit from an air "jacket" that surrounds part of the stove barrel. Cold air enters near the bottom of the jacket, is heated inside the jacket, and then comes out that top opening. It can either be left un-ducted and heat the room that the stove is in, or, using stove pipe, it can be ducted to an upper area that natural convection won't reach.
