    Ruined...Looks brand new to me...I'm not considering it... I'm not in the market for a coal stove, and Lopi doesn't sell coal stoves as far as I know, so this one is raising a serious red flag!!!

    I posted before I looked at the link. I am unaware that Travis industries?LOPI market a wood/coal stove. But if someone were to burn coal in a wood stove without the grates. You know what I am saying.

    Looks like they did at one time. That thing definately looks set up to burn coal and the style of the stove is definately Lopi.

    I sent a heads up to ebay on that one. Definitely not on the up and up with that one.

    Warren, I am glad you did. I was thinking the same thing. Looks like a nice stove though.

    since when is it legal to have fireplaces in a garage?

    When in 1987?
    ITS an insert when is an insert in a masonry fireplace listed for 9" clearance?

    How can anyone make this claim unless it is listed for ZC fire places

    Also available as a freestanding stove with pedestal mount or leg mount as well.

    I thought this was a coal stove?

    What's with the lopi harman connection

    I don't care about any of that stuff. I want the thing. It would look like I parked a Hummer H1 in my fireplace.

    Love it!

    Lopi jumped on the coal bandwagon like everyone else in the early 80's.

    That stove looks like it is in pretty good shape. Not sure how long parts would be available since they did not make coal stoves for very long.

    Brand new and built to take coal, my guess is that with care, it might outlast me.

    - Edit: as long as it's a Lopi and not a China knockoff
