    We are talking about getting a bigger stove before the snow flies and my dad has expressed an interest in taking our Lopi Answer off of our hands and using it for a garage stove. What would be a fair price we could charge for this to ease the cost of getting the new stove. I will, of course, be cutting an extra cord a year for him.

    If dad wants to help out with the new stove purchase and the Answer is in good condition, $500 would be a fair price. Will you be installing it for him?

    Glad to hear that $500 is fair because i was just hoping to get 350 out of it. my brother will install it probably since he is a roofer, but the chimney from his old setup might still be intact. sounds like he will get a good deal.

    How old is it? Condition? I would think $350 is more reasonable, especially since its your dad. Unless its in great condition,
    Then $500 is fair.

    It is from the mid 80s but in fantastic condition save for the rope seal needing replaced this fall.

    $350 or so would be a good price for your dad. It's pretty old.

    The devil is in the details (that were missing). A stove from the mid 80s I would be giving it to my dad. This is an old stove. My comments were based on a stove made in this century.

    Are you kidding? You should be giving it to him! Can you imagine the hell he went through to raise an incorrigible such as yourself?? ;)

    I would too, but without a little extra money we probably won't be getting it done this fall.

    I would wait until I earn enough money for the stove and give your father a early present from a loving son.

    Well you can tell him you really want the new stove, the old one is his when that happens, your short on cash and have to wait a while, see what he says.... 350, just wait the time that it takes or have you looked into financing, some have 0%, especially if your paying 3/4, up front, that's not much to finance on the total price, if one guy says no, call another....just an idea
