Re: anyone heard of a Bunn's Warmer?

You don't want a small stove, chopping wood smaller than 16" sucks.

As long as the price is right go for it.

IMO a stove that is air tight really helps control the fire. A run away fire in a small space from a leaky stove could be scarey if the wrong person builds a fire.

Re: anyone heard of a Bunn's Warmer?

According to the old ad in the link you posted, the stoves were manufactured by "DeWald Northwest Albany."

A search found this information listed on another website:
DEWALD NORTHWEST CO
541-926-5578
33710 Oakville Rd Sw
Albany, OR, USA 97321-9479

One of the current internet links describe the company today as a dumpster manufacturer. And link to the company website I found listed with the above address was broken.

If you zoom into the old ad, you will see that the stove model "IS NOT approved for use in a mobile home!" for whatever that's worth.

To my understanding that means there is no cold air intake, and no heat shields meaning you need more clearance to combustibles.

Re: anyone heard of a Bunn's Warmer?

price is right condition is good and wood size is not an issue. and for approved uses i rarely let the government decide whats good for me bigger heat shield and a little more care when fire stoking i should have no problems. i was more curious in the advertised built in "oven" and the model for sale is not the one pictured in the ad. thanks for the help so far!
