No No No. Don't use the nasty old thing.
Just let me know where it is, and I'll drop by there and pick it right up to protect everyone from it.
But seriously -
I have the same stove.
It is an excellent unit. We used it for a number of years during the last "energy crisis" (got it around 1978), when we had access to free coal (long story).
I recently dragged it out of my father's basement and set it up in our house, and in spite of its having been frequently overfired and massively abused over the years, it still works great.
If you were ever interested in parting with it, I would be happy to strike a deal with you.
I have the original owner's manual (in French and English) and parts list, and would be happy to upload them or otherwise convey copies to you.
Important details about this stove:
It is very small, but puts out a lot more heat than you expect.
It will burn any kind of coal large enough to stay above the grate.
If you don't keep the shiny enameled surface scrupulously clean with baking soda while cold, you will never get it clean again.
It can be a bear to shake.
It should come with a neat little multi-use key that looks like a giant "jack" (like the ones you dropped and picked up as a kid) or can opener.
The back can be removed to clean the fly ash from the reburn chamber.
The asbestos or fiberglas rope that seals the doors MUST be in good shape, or it will burn poorly and leak heat, destroying the finish. Similarly, the door latches must be adjusted for a good seal.
The little reburn lever on the right side is forward to open the door or start a fire, backward once warmed up.
According to the manual the highest setting of the air vent for continuous running (after warm-up) is 3 out of 10. DO NOT set it to 10 and leave for a few hours. This would be bad.
Also,if you or anybody else knows of a source of spare parts, please let me know - I need a few things.
Enjoy the warmth.
ps: yes, I'm new to the group. Hello.
