    Hello all, new member here. I bought this stove for $25 and want to get some info on it. All I know is its a Hearth Craft. Anyone have any other info? Id like to see if it had fire brick at one time and where I can find some parts for it. Thanks!

    Since you didn't post a picture I can just guess. The only Hearth Craft Stoves I have seen are the old Franklin Fireplace style stoves made in Spain that were sold back in the seventies. Those are cast iron and did not have firebrick.

    Yep an old "Franklin". That was my first wood stove and I would never allow one in a house I am sleeping in again. Almost impossible to control and not safety tested or listed.

    To answer your question, no firebricks.

    Alright, thanks for the insight. Perhaps I'll keep looking. I was going to use it in my garage but my dog stays in there overnight and I work overnight so maybe this won't be so good for that. Thanks!
