    A friend of mine has a 'Black Bart" insert. The insert has a surround with blower attached.

    She wanted to sell it to put in gas logs (keep trying to talk her out of it).

    How much would you ask for on CL and how much would you be happy to get?

    Tried to get pic but my phones pics sucked.

    Pics showing condition would help. To most of us? Aint worth much. To folks here in "Western" NC? 200-500 depending. Most here dont even know what EPA stands for, seriously.

    Lots of the old Black Barts sold on craigslist around here. They all start out at $800 and over time come down to $200 and are never seen again.

    Junk....pretty much.

    It was designed and built as one of the first low cost mass produced inserts.....very old. Not a classic. Basically worth what you can get for it.....or for scrap.

    Rather than asking, "how much would you ask for this insert?", you might ask yourself, "How much would I pay for this insert?". Rick
