That baseburner sold in 15 minutes. I saw it at 20 minutes. After listing. Similar one, same price in Madison, Wisconsin.

Seller can ask what ever price they want.
It's only worth what the offers are.

Atleast 2k overpriced. In the east coast 3-5k.
Got the wrong finial on it.
More the farther west you go.

Your stove is from the 1920 era by the style of firepot. First was a firepot with horizontal stacked lines. Lasted only months. Then the jack-o-lantern pumpkin style till about the 20's.
Smooth style with stove pipe crimped bottom late 20's till WWII.

It's a nice stove. Save for the grates. The guy was raving about how well it burned wood! :? They were meant to be dual fuel units but really shine burning coal. Especially with the backpipe.
Rather than use a wood plate on top of the grates, some pull the grates and frame and sit a steel plate on the frame supports to gain a bit more depth for wood. One of my 118 was like that. I was able to get a set of grates from Bryants while they were still in business. Far cheaper than Woodmans.

Check with Wilson. He has lots of sets of triangular grates, plus recasts for many for GW stoves.

I didn't realize they made the Modern Oak until the 1940s. Interesting. Most of the castings are marked early 1900s 1908 etc. Not to say thats when it was assembled or sold. If the Chubby heats my place this certainly will. I think it will successfully radiate more heat into the space without having to run it as hot as the Chubby. When the Chubby is cranking so much heat is lost directly up the chimney.

The guy I got it from said his friend may possibly have the old grates someplace. That would be very nice! I have no intention of burning wood in it if its salvageable. Those eco bricks/pellet logs do a decent job in the shoulder seasons. Just enough to warm the place up

Compete grate kit $500 ++.
With wood plate $600 ++

Recast wait time anywhere between 12 weeks to 9 months
Skip finial got parts yesterday he sent in January.

Everybody said " not a good buy".

Buy another 114 or a Herald 14. Herald grates are same length but more robust with more teeth. Just modify inside edge of firepot. Similar can be done for GW116 with a Herald 16.

Woodsman is the tapemeasure that checks the depth of chit creek, before jumping in head first. Tapemeasures have a dumb end and a smart end.

I'm really not sweating it. I think you are suffering with this more than I ever will. It is a damn shame because the stove is otherwise in immaculate shape for what I believe is an unrestored original. I'm happy to have it in my home and stare at the darn thing.

Anyone have a rough idea of how many square feet a 114 could heat?

Based purely on my measurements in comparing it to my Coal Chubby, it should heat my 1700sqft house no problem. Fire pot is comparable width, but much deeper. The stove is taller and will radiate more heat before it's lost up the flue due to the back pipe. I'd say in a modern home insulated to current standards 2000sqft should be no prob.
