Hi, I have a old late 1800 (I think) cookstove made by buckwalter co in Royersford PA, Says Apollo on the door . The feet are shaped like horse hoofs, wich I think is really neat! the side of the firebox has mica sheets behind the ironwork. It was in fairly decent shape when I bought it mid 1990's where an older lady was still using it to cook her oatmeal. It was a coal burner, but she had been using wood. I did get it overhauled by a professional, and he re-did the grates (which were warped badly - someone didnt clean out their ashes tisk tisk...) and sealed shut the center flue (on the stove pipe) so I could use it for wood. He had said that draft would just spew smoke too much in a woodburning situation..? but he does it for a living so I suppose he knew. that was a few years ago- now I finally am getting around to having the time to try and hook it up in a back room to an exisiting insulated (double wall) stove pipe that had been used for metal 70's style beehive fireplace. I have checked the forum for clearances, and it sounds like 36 inches without a heat sheild. There is a heat shield of brick already there, with a air space behind, but I am not sure then what my safe clearance from that would be- the wall behind the brick is wood paneling. I do not intend to build raging fires (the firebox is not real big anyway) and do not need it as the heat source in the room- we are putting in a direct vent NG fireplace for that on another wall. I just have always wanted to be able to fiddle around with cooking on in and enjoying something that is a real fire- I grew up with a real fireplace and well, the NG ones have come along way, they just arent the same..(we have free natural gas here, so heating with that is a no brainer- but I do get nostalgic) I am gonna see if I can attach some photos of the stove, and after my camera charges tonight I will try and post a few of the intended hook up spot. And if anyone has seen this stove before, lemme know- I would love some more history, I really dont have much on it Thanks!
