This is my first post and I am trying to determine if I should follow through with this. My Aunt and Uncle have a old Atlantic Model 228 wood stove they are willing to give me. Back in the late 70's and early 80's my parents were actually a dealer for these and several other stoves. My Aunt and Uncle purchased it from my parents and used it for a few years. It has sat unused for probably 25 years now. My wife and I have been discussing converting our fireplace to a wood stove of some sort. I had been looking at inserts until this was offered to me. Besides being very inefficient, our fireplace does not draw well so we never use it. I am really just looking for something more efficient, a way to offset our furnace, and the ambiance. So my question is should I bother moving this thing to my house, fixing it up, and installing it? I know I will have to modify my damper and install a stove pipe up the chimney. I will also have to address the height issue with the stove. All the dimensions will fit our fireplace except the height. It is 2.5" too high. I was thinking I could shorten the feet since they are 6". Any thoughts would be appreciated. I can try to get some pictures of this thing if needed. Here is some info I found on Woodsman's Parts Plus.
