Old stove info

PostBy: SemperFi On: Mon Sep 22, 2008 12:13 pm

Just wondering if anybody had any info on this old stove. I found it at a flea market a few weeks back for $50 and was wondering how old it was and where it was made. It was purchased to look at not to burn as I would never trust it in my home. Any info would be great.

Nice find! Why wouldn't you trust it? Probalby works as good as the newer ones! They used them in the old days probably all the time.

Great site, love the old stoves. My stove is solid with no cracking or rot, I just would have a hard time burning it in my house. I did fire it in the back yard just for fun when I brought it home. I used a 6 foot stack and about 30 lbs of nut coal, amazingly enough it wasnt that hard to control the burn, I got about 7 hours out of it ( not so good). I got 375 deg on the side of the stove and 650 plus gas temp(not very eff.). The stove is fairly tight but not air tight, I would fear having a runaway stove.

Hmmm, a company restoring stoves in my hometown? Now that is interesting. I wonder if they are restored for use or strictly for looks.
