Today, neighbor Dave gave me his old wood stove! It even came complete with ash and a half burnt log! I knew he had a big one, but I did not know he had another! He got it from his friend who had it in his living room 20 years ago. Dave put it into his basement, it was only big enough to heat the basement and the floor upstairs. Five years ago when he bought the big one he has now, he unhooked the little one.

The thing that made me want a woodstove in the garage, was seeing the pot-belly stove my uncle Kevin has in his garage. He knew it made me want one, and he started to keep his eye out for one for my garage. There where a few on craigslist but they where always gone by the time either of us could contact the seller. Today when he came to pick up the bench grinder stand I made him, he saw the little stove; I had not told him I got one.

He hangs drywall and on one jobsite a bunch of limestone got thrown away; he stopped them and took it. I don't remember what he called it but it is in big slabs. He is also going to help me install it! When he does, he is going to bring the limestone so we can put it on the surrounding walls. I don't know when it is going to be put in, but I hope it will be done before I have to sit inside... wishing it was warm in the garage.

The only pictures are the ones that Dave sent me. I will take more tomorrow.

It says Atlantic on the dish part on the front, and the door says 224. I assume that 224 is the model.

It is great to have a heated shop in the winter. It is even better if you actually have room to work in it LOL. My shop has electric heat in it and I only turn it on when I go out there, which is usually warm enough. I only leave it on at night if I had been painting that day. I would have a wood stove but we had concerns about it in a shop that uses gasoline in the tractors (gas fumes). Anyway, great score, be safe.

Yup that is the one. My Dad loved that stove. He only changed it out because his neighbor gave him one that took up less room.

Same here Casey. I mess with gasoline to much, that and painting. So no wood stove for me.

So, Dave and you are talking again?
Nice little stove, should work out great for your area, just be mindful of flammables. Would hate to hear you had issues.

woodstoves are great, if one had the resorces to feed them. I just picked up a nice wood furnace, free for the hauling,,, from my neigbors home next door . It's a little big, I wish I had the choice of yer smaller one one that you got Ryan, easier to stoke. Good for you :-)

My buddy has same thing. He has a small fan plugged in behind it to move the heat around and that lil thing does a great job of heating his big shop. You will not be let down.

I used to have wood heat in a garage. I took an area above the stove and recessed the ceiling. Ran a duct between the rafters across the shop with a small fan there to suck the heat that rose and blow it out across the room. Made good circulation and warmed the garage pretty quick. Didn't need much fire after things warmed up.
