Tim, what was the approximate external measurements of your Surdiac?

I am beginning to consider a big, brown, Warm Morning from the 1950's.
The Warm Morning is a decent stove, but the condition of the internal bricks and grate is very important. The one you pictured is coated with a porcelain enamel so not easy to repaint. The flue is reversible if need be and that one looks to me to be the smallest which holds 40 pounds of coal. Model number would tell us more.

Take your time and hook up your laundry stove for now. Pay attention to the fit of the ash door. Close a dollar bill in the door all around to see if it grips the bill.

Good advice! Thanks. Will carry this conversation to my thread. Tim, sorry for the hijack. ;) :) 8-)
