    Pretty cool. What are you burning in there, coal or wood?

    I think it looks cool.
    I am sure you will get a lot of people wondering what colour are you going to paint it since you just primed it.

    I would love something like that. Looks massive.

    Isn't that Ruddy brown? The filler primer? Definitely unique. I wish coal was available here in the NW.

    thanks guys, heres the link of the russet color. according to wikipedia, RUSSET is a brown with a reddish tinge (click the pics to zoom in ) . .

    heres the link where i got the cans : http://www.northlineexpress.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=5SA-8102

    the pics make it look too red, though its more brown. you can tell in the farther away photo without a flash .

    What's wrong with the traditional black ?
    I'm sorry but I do not like that color at all.

    thats ok, you dont have to like it . the original black was a little intimidating for my room... and my lady. i would have wanted a little darker brown but thats ok. it looks more reddish than it really is. also, this color matched the rustic browns and color scheme more than flat black. (yes ..... the woodbutcher has a sensitive side too) :) .

    A bit off topic... but where do you get coal at? and how much?

    My job takes me to coal mines all over the US, but I never knew where to buy?

    i buy from a guy who sells to the amish out here in middlefield, oh , about 20 miles from me . the best source is coal country in central PA . . . i get mine for about 200-215$ a ton. 3-4 tons tops would last all winter if you burned from november till easter that is...

    Sweet stove! I had a Baker, they're built about 15 miles from my home. I've been to their plant. I burned coal, and you're right, I always bought 3 ton, and that with a little bit of wood, got me through the winter.

    Though I had a freestanding coal stove, your insert is designed exactly like my coal stove, the door handle, the top and bottom air control, the blower tubes, I mean it's exactly the same.

    I could easy get 24 hour burns on coal if it was 40 degrees, when it got colder the routine was shake 'er down and load 'er up every 12 hours.

    "how hot you want it" was my sayin' when I was burnin' that Baker. I had the "toastmaster" which it looks like they discontinued, but it was almost exactly like the "challenger" on their website.

    Nice job on the painting! I'm sure you'll get a lot of opinions on the color, but as my dad always said, opinions are like ________... everyone has one. I saw that you're from Middlefield. Being a former resident of Parkman, I can empathize with you re. the snowbelt. We used to burn coal in a furnace for years. My folks probably even got their coal from the same source!

    I hope the stove serves you well. Good job!

    WB, I'm a hop over Chardon from you in Kirtland right at the border, just on the edge of the snowbelt. Nice job on the stove.

    I checked out your profile...listen, if your employer ever has a "Take Your Son To Work" Day, I'm available for adoption. :cheese:

    WoodButcher80,
    Are you burning Ohio soft coal or Anthracite? There is a coal supplier in New Philadelphia that sells bituminous coal from that area that is $95 a ton. I don't know if you have a way to get it, but that is quite a savings over $200 a ton. It was $58 a ton until this heating season. Let me know if you need more information.

    hey Dog,
    im burning anthracite, no soft bit coal . thats a good price! new phily is about 1hr and 30 min from me . . . still , bit coal is messy, sometimes sulfury smell , and need more sweeps typically. i probably could burn it , but its more maintenance with the clinkers . thx for the offer tho. . . :)

    I love the way you 'dare to be different' with your stove!
    Very unique!
    It blends well with the brick and I bet it looks great in your room.
    I salute you for 'walking on the wild side' [​IMG] hehe

    thanks prada! i had a new years party and all the guests were very intrigued by how it heats the whole house for free 24/7 (burning and old maple now) and that it can travel upstairs without any pipes connected to it. heheh . heres one i took with my antique real copper wood holder and of course - the most indispensable tool- my welding gloves atop the wood pile. . .
