Well I did it now. Took the trip to MD to look at the Harman Magnum that Coalkirk had for sale,and wouldn't you know that it just jumped into the truck and wanted to go for a ride. Not really a jump but more of a push/pull type thing.
I will say that it was a great day and thanks go out to Terry for his hospitality and tour of the all important boiler room.
I will keep you all posted ,with pics as I think of them, with my progress on this project. I have the stove in my basement now just napping till I get the chimmney built. That will happen in the spring/summer. Again a great day meeting with a fellow forum member chewing the fat and having a fine late lunch. I look forward to meeting more of you at all the upcoming M&G's as my schedule allows. Now, If anyone knows of someone looking for one of those "other stoves" it will be available come spring,DHW coil and all. Thanks again Terry.

Glad to hear you got it home and unloaded without any problems. Heavy little buggers but they do come out of the truck easier than they go in. :lol: I enjoyed meeting you and your friend Leon who provided the extra muscle to help get that rascal up the ramp. I hope the stove does the job you need it to do and you and your family have many years of comfort from it. Time to start planning that chimney now.

I look forward to seeing you at a future Meet and Greet. I don't think I'm going to make the Feb. M&G but maybe the next one.

Thanks for the help carrying in the groceries too! :)
