I figured the thread should changed to reflect the actual stove.It seems there was a Home Foundry and a Chicago Stove Works so further complicate matters however this is the stove I bought whatever it is .

smithy,
time seems very long for all of us but I think it should be very very longer for you....
Hope to see more photos from it. Looks like a 14" firepot, according to the No. at the back. The missing theet were cut and not broken. They were to have access to the coal bet , to poke the lower part.
Bravo and welcome to the B.B. Club

If possible, send some photos showing where you will place the stove, the chimney's connector...
Probably needs a Manual Pipe Damper for the flue pipe like recommanded and at least one thermometer. Some anthracite, probably nut size.

The Base Burner has enough capacity to easily heat that entire area with a minimum of coal consumption.
As far as the list of things to get, We'll see when you get the stove and inventory what you need to do. Including the surprises like the broken teeth in the fire pot.
The first thing you need to to do when you get the stove is to recreate those broken teeth with some bondo and send that fire pot out to be recast. The original designers made the fire pots to be a wear item to be replaced when it wore out. Tomahawk Foundry is the stove Foundry of choice it seems. They do high quality work, specialize in old stoves like ours, and you get the work done quickly. The broken teeth in the fire pot is not acceptable in a stove you wish to perform at its best.
You want that stove at its best, because its best will blow your mind with its efficiency and low cost fuel use. We will be here to assist with the entire project to insure that you will be a happy camper. My favorite thing is when someone gets a Base Heater or Base Burner and they find out how good these stoves are. If you are in the, "Modern Is Better Club" that stove will cause you to give up your membership in it. But remember, you will have to have the patience to undo a Century of neglect to bring the stove up to its original standard.

You sure those teeth are broken off? Maybe they aren't there for some kind of alignment or something. If it was my stove, I fabricate something, run it for a winter, see how I liked it, then think about casting a new part... That is, if indeed I felt I needed those teeth...

That's what I was thinking too dj. They look more like they've been sawed off versus broken as Pierre mentioned. I'm not sure but It's only two and I can't see that they would effect things to awful much. I'd do as Will said and reseal everything and see how it operates as is. The teeth look to be for circulation around and under the pot.

You all might be right about the teeth being cut off. It's a very clean break. I was concerned about waste of coal falling through the gap. The gap there wouldn't effect the performance of the stove as far as I can see, but; that isn't original. As far as casting a new fire pot goes, that is a common repair and it isn't expensive. If you put in a refractory liner in fire pot, it will last for the rest of your life time.
