What a wonderful old stove. Is it a serious home heater for you, or a hobby :?: My grandmother had a parlor stove in her living room and heated the half house she lived in with it. :up:

This stove is a very serious heater for its size. I mentioned on another thread, that even during the zero degree weather we have been having this stove has been keeping the living room at 75-80 and the rest of the house plenty warm enough that the furnace hasn't been turned on once. I'm burning a little over 50 pounds of coal a day during the really cold weather. It's doing a good job.
