    I just picked up this stove and was wondering if anybody could give me some information on it. It has a 8-84 echo cast in the bottom. Thanks in advance!

    Typical 8 inch Laundry Stove.
    That is the size of the coal burn pot.
    These stoves were built low so when a laundry "boiler" was on top it wasn't too tall to be able to plunge the clothes with an agitator type plunger.
    Removing the two lids as well as center cover allows direct contact with heat (from coal) to bottom of boiler.
    Normally used on an open back porch during summer when the extra heat was not needed in the house.

    3 things to clean; 1). chemical or soap Dwell Time; 2). Heat, and 3). Agitation. The less you have of any of the 3, the more another must make up for the one missing or deficient. So bringing it up to a boil reduced the need for soap and agitation.

    For those that think of the good old days, laundry days were not.

    That was Monday here as the railroad had to run a "clean stack" in and out of town with everyone hanging their wash out that day.
