I was thinking the same (looks like a mine). Supposidly, that's how Webber grills got their start after WWII. It would be curious to know the year of manufacture. The money shot is the profile of Lincoln and the axe handle.
The turkeys called fowl on them.Had to pass on it. WAAAY too much stove for me. That thing would eat a whole tree in a matter of hours. Turns out they came from Nebraska where they were used to heat poultry houses. So the "cool factor" was negated by the "OMG this thing is enormous" factor.
Note that only one appliance is to be connected to the chimney. Also the clearance to combustibles for this stove are 36" all directions.
Are you still looking for a Lincoln Stove?My Uncle was the manufacturer of Lincoln stoves. That model was called the "Papa Potbelly" it was designed to be used in large shops/garages. There was one in a local mechanics shop in the town I grew up in that would keep that entire building uncomfortably warm in even the coldest weather.
There was also a "Momma Mushroom" model that was a pedestal base mushroom shaped unit. Visualize half of the round unit pictured above. They were great for homes, My parents and grandparents still have them in their homes today.
There was a thirds "fireplace insert" model as well. We had one in our place as far back as I can remember.
All three models worked extremely well!
if the OP is still around, what part of the country was that Craigslist ad posted?
