Thanks Paul.
But sometimes Goldie can get ""hot"" :D
WOW ! Looks even better, up close and lit up like that. Beautiful stove !!!!!

I notice the looped T shaped door handles - very similar to Jubileejerry's Wehrle Sunburst. Is there a tool that was used to turn them by hooking into the loop ?

Paul
So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.

Looks like that few seconds of rake out dumped a lot of unburned coal. :roll:

But for the 12 Hrs meal, the Bride is very frugal, almost unbelievable. Actually, ""she"" burns 4 lbs on a non-stop 12 Hrs period. Burns that way since the past 6 days and will for the rest of the cold season. But just heating a small living-room. Impossible to get 400*F in that small room, average 150*/175*F. The stove could easily get to 400*F + but no need for it. The small stove seems happy to keep that low heat output.
The Sunnyside heats the rest of the house.

OMFG :eek2: who has a stove like that sitting their and decides to use the Harman instead toothy Who has a stove like that and burns wood inside it :taz: are you kidding me... that thing is amazing!!! Id have coal shipped from France if I had to for that thing! :punk:

How does someone just fall into a stove like that? was it simply sitting in a house you bought? was it inherited after grampa passed away? how long have you had that thing to only post & join this forum recently?

I just had to comment on your base burner. That's a very attractive stove and I am glad to see people still using these older heaters. I restore antique stoves to original condition and they perform every bit as well as any newer stove in my opinion. This Moores 403B is heating most of my 2500 square ft. home. The back bedrooms may be a little chilly, but the main living space is warm as toast. I have a state of the art geothermal heat system and, believe it or not, I don't use it that often. You are most certainly correct when you say once you fire on anthracite, you never look back. Of course, I do burn wood because it is readily available, but it's coal at night for the long, steady even burn.

Welcome coalpuppy.

Now you've gone and done it - more key boards with drool needing to be cleaned up. :D

And I think you'll find that you'll be asked for more pictures and info about that beauty ! ;)

So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.
