Hey memco man 8-)
Haven't seen much of you. Hope you had a nice Holiday :D

Often see Moore No. 403B's and they are circulator type stove able to do bit or anthracite for fuel if the provisions are there for both under fire air and over fire air.

memcoman, That's a nice porcelain enamel circulator stove you have.
Are you going to swap it out with one of your other stoves?

Yes I am I was thing about swaping out my franco-belge but I think that it would cook me out of the house I have no ideal how many BTU it will put out I have the base repaired all I need is the Micah replaced the reason I want to swap it out is because I have been having a hard time getting pea coal for the Franco but more the likely it will go over to my daughters house I have them hooked on coal and they need a bigger stove for their basement if you have any more info on this stove I would appreciate any thing I could get I will take pictures of the fire box tomorrow and post them Thanks.

there is a formula in the Hand Fired Forum for the dimensions of your fire box. That information along with how many square feet your home is, will tell you if the Moore's will be enough for you whole home. A very well insulated home in upper Midwest will require 24,000 BTU's per 1,000 sqft. (but they don't tell what inside temperature that achieves).
I can find plenty newspaper ads about your stove if you want to see them posted. They were pretty popular.
