    Found it on CL for $675, it came with fan, 8" surround panels, plus either a 15° or 30° offset connector for pipe or liner. Barely any rust, baffle and airtube in great condition, no cracks, just 1 cracked firebrick. Damper and air control rods operate smoothly. Any thoughts?

    I am thinking , u betcha ya, nice find and good price but I am not all that read up on Lopi stoves. Considering what I have seen here on CL ,super in my book. Now if someone would just put a BK king up at that price point, well I can dream anyway.

    Only two and a half hours? Rookie! Let me know when you go across six states in a snow storm. ;lol

    Seriously, though, good find and a good deal.

    Considering what they cost new I think its a steal. New coat of paint (that brass would HAVE TO GO if it was me) and it would look like brand new. Don't let that one get away from you.

    I'm not fond of the brass either, so it might get painted ;)
