Has anyone taken a look at the Crawford No. 2 base heater in Russell, Mass for $350?

It's still active on Craigslist.

I mentioned it to Emery - he thinks it's sold.

Just wondering - Chris

Looks pretty rough. The grate though looks like mine. The firebox is differant thhough. If I lived closer I would offer him $50. Just to have for parts.

Once the Antique Parlor and Base Burner coal bug has bit you it is hard to shake!! (pun intended!) :sick:

Offer the guy $50 for the stove. The ad states the base needs to be welded and it obviously needs some serious work. All he can do is say "NO". :lol:
