The old JC Penney's wood stove I have in the shop is getting to the point it needs to be replaced.  This is the 3rd used wood stove for the shop in 35 years!  The cast iron lining plates are warping & cracking, outlet pipe is getting loose, not really safe anymore!   I found a replacement on CL 125 miles from home 3 weeks ago, but life & weather kept getting in the way.  It was advertised as having bent up sheet metal but a very good fire box, it is for the shop after all!  Finally, an open weekend, I emailed the seller yesterday morning for more pictures & if he'd meet me halfway, he sent the pics & agreed.  We met at a Home Depot this morning & I picked this one up:  HPIM1502.JPG

 

After we got home,  spent about an hour straightening & replacing missing bolts.  Tomorrow, I'll put the boom on the loader, reach into the shop, pull the old one out & set this one in.  Firebox looks barely used, should last many more years!

I never buy new woodstoves, even for the house. There are plenty of good used ones for cheap each spring. If you don't spend it, you don't have to earn it.  Good Luck, Rick

There are a few exceptions to that "dont buy new" thing. I got a few of those style stoves for the shop that were so rusted out, they were not worth the scrap price to haul them off.

I have a very good one in the house, but don't use it anymore, just want to keep it where it is!  My shop started out with a "Warm Morning" my folks had, then a "King" I bought new for another house, then the "Penny's".  Used all of them up!

Smart move. Repower before you have an issue.

 

That unit, wouldn't be made by Newmac, would it?

It looks familiar.

Those hanging Modine or similar styles and LP gas seem the way to go to me. I have a 75,000 BTU one in my shop and warms up in very little time. Set thermostat and it cycles as needed. It is OFF the floor out of way and much cleaner than wood and NO work to get the wood either.

But I have 140 acres with lots of timber & I like working in it!  So a wood supply is not an issue.

   I have been heating my house with one of those for the last 5 years, very good stove.  I just took it out of service this year in leu of a wood hot air furnace in the basement.

Quick google search.

 

US stove company, that sells the Wonderwood stove, bought out Newmac.

 

I have a Newmac in my 400 sq ft hunt camp. It can be -25c, some windows open, and

you could be sweating while wearing shorts if you don't turn that thermostat down.

Those are nice stoves I think you'll be well pleased with it. Did you get lucky and get one with the blower kit already installed?

No blower, I don't need it in my small shop.
