Mystery Stove

PostBy: McKoker On: Sat Dec 13, 2008 8:03 pm

Someone gave this stove to my neighbor a couple of years ago and he's been using it to heat a 40 x 70 garage. He asked me to post some pics to see if anyone could identify the manufacturer. There is a spot where a name plate used to be. If other pics from different angles would help or some physical description, let me know.

Thanks

Don't know the make but curious to know if you have any pictures of the inside of the stove? I'm always more interested in the inside design of a stove or furnace than the outside.

That's a basic home mader. If it makes heat, it's a winner.

I was originally thinking a homemade unit too, but I see a fair amount of sophistication, in the curved sidewalls, interesting door handles and the diverter/damper handle in the top corner..

So, I'm thinking a local steel shop or an early pre-production unit from a stove company,, have you every seen one of the really early Harman stove?? pretty basic..

It will be interesting to find out what it is..
