    No I don't think so. Unless a factory with an R&D team that has to prove it's product meets UL and now EPA standards is homemade then yes they are all homemade.

    That isn't a stove it's an early wood burning Trojan horse stove! Whatever you do do NOT open the door lest the hot coals be set loose and run about setting your hut on fire!! !!!

    welds don't look bad from what I can see in the blury enlarged pic and it was clearly thought out in design - just not sure what the designer was thinking??

    It looks like the right side is the only side with the 90 degree legs so I am guessing there is/was/or intended to be something that sits on top of those legs and between that angle tacked to the top edge. Maybe some home brew heat exchanger or something? Depending on if this is an attached garage or out building and what you can get the seller to take for it there is potential. Certainly would want to take an in person self inspection and would never heat my home or garage attached to my home with it. I just paid slightly more than the asking price for an early model NC 12 with 16" of Duravent class A still in th box and never fired out in Nashville, MI - better deals out that in the asking price range.
