    Hi all, can you please tell me anything and all about this stove? Neighbor is selling it. Has an offer for $60, will sell it to. Me for $45, I'm thinking it would be nice to cook some soup on it next to my outdoor firepit that has the meat and potatoes on it. I appreciate all the wisdom you can provide, I don't need it but it looks to be in great shape and seems like a nice deal, so please help me out.....thank you..... image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    That is not a Franklin stove. They are more like a fireplace with doors. This stove is a Taiwanese knock-off of a Jotul 602. It's a common find and topic in the Classics forum. This one looks to be in reasonable condition. It would be nice for a shop, greenhouse, or smaller room.

    Sort of. It will still need a short chimney for draft.

    That would be a fun stove to use for a smoker. As begreen said scan's are a Jotul Knockoff, for $45 that is a good price with the cast accessories.
