    I have a chance on purchasing a ten year old osburn 2400 for around 800.00
    It has the blower on it and the not so nice gold door . I've only seen pictures
    But was able to speak with the owner. So besides overheat or cracks in the
    Stove , bad welds what should I look for ? ? ? Were there any updates to the
    2400 in the last ten years ? It's a 5 hour drive but if it checks out it would be
    Worth it .
    Thanks in advance for your warm comments !

    Seems a bit high for a 10 yr old stove considering you can get a new 30NC for about the same price without the 7.5hr drive. 10 yrs ago that stove sold for about $1200. If the stove has seen 10 seasons of full time burning I would inspect everything closely. This would include inspection for cracks, warping, sagging burn tubes, damaged baffle, worn out firebrick, sagging door hinges, old gaskets, anemic blower, etc..
