Is Rtstove.Com Down?

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

In my search for a good stove for my dad I have found that the D.S. machine stove company's webpage is down. Has anyone else had problems finding there site?

That domain is no longer registered to anyone which means it's actually available to anyone that wants it. it won't be coming back unless they re-registered it.

While on the topic you can use this site to see if a site is down or it's just you.

DS machine is a Amish company so it will be hard to find info using the computer ,they don't advertise in that way being Amish , I don't know what happened with RT stoves maybe they are not a DS machine dealer any more or DS machine has restricted them from selling over the internet , you can contact DS machine directly and they can provide you with dealer locations and the specs you are looking for . here is their contact Info 717-768-3853.

Doug, your name is available. It's usually only about $10 a year and they usually have email forwarding with that. [email protected]

Coalway in Apple Creek, Ohio sells DS Machine stoves and boilers. The last time I dropped in their DS inventory was way down. It could be that they are doing much better business on the wood stove and gas stove end of things. They even mentioned to me that they may divest their coal sales business, or spin it off into another company. Since this is where I buy my anthracite it has me a bit concerned. My hope is that they don't simply drop coal sales. Coalway without coal sounds preposterous.
