    I think its either a Scandia, or a Taiwanese knock-off of a Scandia. Friends had one very similar that they bought at a local department store about 30 years ago. Theirs was the Taiwanese knock-off version.

    Agreed. A full front shot would confirm this.

    That's one huge frikin stove!!!

    It's a knock off of a Jotul 118. A little different than other Scandia Stoves I've seen, but it's for sure a knock off of an original.

    @All - Thanks for the help. I agree it is a knock off of a Jotul or Scandia, and especially after reading about the poor quality, cracks, etc. This originated from some Craigslist searches I have been casually doing to look for a shop stove. Measurements came from that ad, as did the pics. I am a total newbie to stoves, and while most have names and model numbers that I can lookup and research this one did not. No worries, it is no longer listed and after learning not something I'm interested in.

    Wow, there are a lot of crap wood stoves on Craigslist. I'm set in the house with the Quadrafire 3100 and will just keep looking to see if a good quality stove shows up on Craigslist for the shop.

    This is the Taiwanese version after sitting in the weeds for several years.

    I guess it is not even good enough for a boat anchor;)

    That thing has been sitting outside for several years, but my friends say they used to heat their house with it. They thought it was still in good shape, but its full of soggy ash and the cement is missing from most of the seams. I told them they should leave it there and keep it as a yard ornament. Fortunately for them they upgraded to an older Hearthstone.

    If you measure a Scandia box stove in centimeters, it comes to those measurements.
    29 deep X 14 wide X 30 high in inches.

    That is remarkable. It has not rusted yet? I see no reason why they shouldn't tear it down (pretty easy) , re-cement the joints and continue using it. It's a shame to see it languishing outdoors like that.
