    I saw this under a shed at my father-in-laws house. He wants $45 for it. Do you think it's worth the money? It has all the pipes that go on top as well as the round inserts. I don't know who made it, how old it is or if it's worth anything. Please help me out if you know anything about this piece.

    Thank you!

      Great! Thanks for the input. Guess I'll be getting it this weekend!

      Yeah, its worth it, a new china made one is like $239 or so, not as well made as the old ones. You'll be amazed at the heat this stove will produce! And you can cook on it as well. They used to make like a tin box that hooked on the side of these that held and made hot water. Only ever seen one.

      Should I get the rust off of it and paint it or anything?

      I got it last night! Took a wire brush to it an started knocking the rust off. Looking better already! I love it!

      Ok, will do! I will be keeping it on my back porch to use outside for now.

      You can probably answer this..... I am missing the tool thing that you use to take the round inserts out with.... what is that tool called? lol

      Great! Thanks so much!! :)

      LOL we'd all be in trouble if you were blond! Thanks for the offer, but I'll track one down. I have some on my watch list at eBay already. They are pretty inexpensive.

      Burned my first fire in the stove this evening. That thing gets so HOT! It's awesome!
