Well I bought a Crawford Tropic 112 today. It is not a full base burner but it has and indirect back pipe to increase efficiency. I am going restore it myself and have some fun with it.

It is in an antique store in Torrington, CT. I am looking forward to doing the restoration this fall. It still has the original factory fire bricks.

If I had lived closer I would have boughten it off ebay weeks ago. I really like the looks of it, and the price was good too. Enjoy

This is a simple, good quality stove. It isn't too hard to restore if all the parts are there. You should enjoy it. What are you going to do with it after you finish it? Be careful and don't end up like some of us with a house full of stoves. It almost can't be helped though. There are so many beautiful examples out there.

William,
I have several options on where to put it. My workshop/barn, in-law house (800 SF), or the lower level of my raised ranch. It does become an obsession with these ultra efficient works of art. I ended up getting the stove for $352 and I am happy with the deal.
