Hi,

We just bought a house this summer with a very large pile of what looks to be bituminous coal in the basement along with a fully vented/setup Atlanta Stove Works Super Fireball model 1675 stove in seemingly(?) good condition. I am wondering what folks think about actually using this stove for heating this winter? Does anyone else use one? Is it safe for my family? Anything I should know about it? Can’t find much info on the web about this model at all. Any help/wisdom appreciated at I know very little about coal stoves.

There's no such thing unless there are pictures to prove it.

Very similar to a warm morning 414.

Wood needs to be cut real short to fit in stove.

Burns coal also soft/Bituminous and hard/Anthracite.

If shaker grate is in good shape and the fire brick are good. Try a small, short burning fire.

Made somewhere around 1930ish to 1950ish.

> Is it safe for my family?

If its already setup, good chance the previous owners used it without issue.
In any case, make sure you have a carbon monoxide alarm close by the stove and one close to where you sleep.
Not that you have to be afraid, but if you are burning anything its cheap security for conditions you can't anticipate.
Check to see whether the chimney/pipe needs cleaned before firing.
