The stove looked interesting - just thought I'd pass it along. I didn't see any sign of a check damper lever, so I don't think it was a base heater.
Anyway - it's sold.
As to that stove being a waste of time - I picked up two Crawford BH's, each with many problems last October, for very short money. One's nearing completion at Emery's and one's going to be started in May. They're both very salvageable and not going to cost a fortune to be restored. Thankfully, there are very talented people around New England like Emery, Wilson(Skip) and Doug, who have the skill set and resources to bring these babies back, many times after 75-100 years of neglect. Unfortunately, as more people discover how effective base heaters are, the already limited supply of unrestored stoves will pretty much dry up.
It's been fun finding these gems, but I now have three base heaters, two circulators and a few assorted oaks, wood stoves and a kitchen range - that's enough.
