Just wanted to chime in and intro myself. I've been watching for one of these stoves for a while now. This one turned up on local CL this past week , was listed as a Mama but when I got there I discovered otherwise! Gotta say I was an easy sell. But anyway I stumbled on this site and have gained a wealth of info. I cleaned it out and replaced the fire brick that were cracked or broken and made a baffel and now its fixing to move into the old Ashley's spot for the remainder of the winter. This spring/summer I intend to give it a fresh paint job. The plate on back is dated 08/79, I know it looks a little rough but it has potential.
