Hi,

Not sure if this is the right forum for this sort of request, but if anyone is thinking of getting rid of a small cast iron woodburning stove I'd be interested in buying it off you.

Will pickup, ideally within 50 miles of Manchester.

Current aging gas fire is inefficient and expensive to run. I've had stoves before and find them a pleasure to use, but can't afford a new one!

machine mart have them in at circa £100 without firebricks in, its a lotta work and dust but great if you can get cheap wood/coal.
check your not in a smokeless zone tho!
oh and you need to check your chimmney liner if fitted is the correct type the gas stuff usually rots thru fairly quickly when exposed to wood heat/fumes

Thanks for that, didn't realise Machine Mart did stoves. Had a look and it seems most models are out of stock unfortunatley. I'd be happy with a rusty thing out of someones garage that I can clean up and use. Sick of having a cold house and watching my gas bill go up the chimney!

yeah know the feeling, but have to say they rarely go cheap even s/h, you can try ebay occasional bargains on there.

When I was in B&Q the other day they had a few in the door way for cheap, £50 I think they were all clearance so your local store may have some in

Sorry to jump on this thread OP :)

Just wondering maddogb, as you seem to know what your talking about, if you could advise me ?

just got my latest electric bill and it aint good :oops:
Anyway I have a open fire (small) in the kitchen which i have used and seemed fine
Also have access to the chimney from the lounge, if i knock a hole in the wall. :w00t:

Could I just buy a stove and connect the exit of the fire through the hole without using any chimney lining ???

Not sure if I have made sense but just want a log/multi in the lounge for as easy and cheap as poss :whistling:

Cheers

in theory yes but don't forget these burn a lot hotter than normal open fire and can produce a lot more smoke in a short space of time, so any gaps in the chimney lining will expand with the heat and let smoke through, possibly into the house.
Liner isn't that dear you can get flexi liner a quarter of the price now as it was 10 years ago and you might want to consider filling in the kitchen fireplace as a lot of old chimney rubble will start coming down as it heats/cools down, shakes a lot of stuff loose esp if it hasn't been used for a while.
