    I found this old Kalamazoo Superpower furnace buried in the corner of an old barn. Anyone know anything about it?

      I have one of these in my basement. The one you have used to have a sheet metal shell around it. My forced air natural gas furnace is still connected to it. I think it was a coal burner at one point. The bottom section is blocked off in mine. According to the previous owner of my house it still works as a wood burner, however I have not tried that yet. My house was built in 1941 and I have found ads for this furnace in newspapers from 1941 on Google. I would love to find a manual for it...

      Has anyone found additional information on this Kalamazoo Superpower Furnace? I think it looks a bit like the robot on "Lost in Space". I like that robot. It is a great design for me. I live in Kalamazoo and will see if I can find more info, too. I would like to know what the fair market value is.
