Hi follks, been reading this forum for about a week and think this is a great place with a wealth of info! Just ordered a Hitzer 503 and feels like I have taken a step toward energy independence. Now the foreign oil interests won't be dictating to me not nearly as much. I have previous anthracite experience, in my first house we had a Surdiac gothic type, can't recall the model. In fact, it's in the cellar at home...no room for it in this house. I should probably put that for sale someplace soon, maybe there's still a demand for it. Anybody know? So I'm looking forward to learning from you fine folks and hopefully have information to contribute as well. I'm in central Mass. Have a nice 4th everybody!

If your old Surdiac is still functional and in decent shape, it will sell easily.

Top of the line current production stoves are getting top dollar and are hard to find, they are sold in a few hours.
$200-300 on craigslist and it will be sold and they will gladly remove it from a basement.
If it burns anything other than oil it has value. I saw a Godin Petit for $3000 and a rust-bucket potbelly for $800.
