    Hi guys new here, I've been searching high and low for a nice baker woodstove insert for my fireplace. I already have my ss liner in just need the stove and has to be a top exaust. Have any of you had one of their inserts or know of someone who had any experience with them. I have made up my mind that's the stove that I want. (Fireside) If anyone knows of a good one for sale please let me know I live in York co. Pa. Thanks!

    Unless I've missed a resurgence, these are pre-epa stoves. If I remember correctly, I think these were meant for coal and wood? What is your primary goal for burning?

    I'll move this thread over in the pre-epa forum so that it is visible there also.

    Welcome to the site.

    Are you looking to primarily burn wood or coal?

    Would be primarily wood but wouldn't ever rule out wood or possibility of throwing some coal in if a longer burn is needed.

    Sure sounds like a stout stove. Why not buy new and get what you want?

    Ok don't really have the funds to go new or would. Did find an older one today is a double door wood only no shaker grate for $1000 from a local guy that sells used stoves. Didn't see it yet he says it was gone over though. Think thats a lot but ya just can't find these things anywhere!
