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:
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!
