"Favorite Stove Works"
« on: December 18, 2015, 07:13:49 AM »
I recently purchased a small wood stove for my shop.It has "Favorite Stove Works" and the word "ART" on the sides and the # 16 on the door. Does anyone  have any information on this, how old, what kind of btu's I can get out of it. What's the best type of wood (oak, elm, or a soft wood)  to burn to get the most efficient  heat out of it.
Thank you

Welcome to the forum twig! I have never heard of it personally. Have you tried searching the name on google or somewhere?
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!

Sorry, I live in MN, that would make a little bit of sense to have some idea where I live MN versus FL. I did find out it was founded in1887 by Stanhope Boal who died in1933 and the Co. shut down in 1935. But it didn't say if the stove was a collectible or not? It is a neat little stove and does put out some pretty good btu's.

How about a pic or two of the stove. May ring a bell or two. 
Most stoves, if you burn good dry wood, will give out good BTU's.

Where was the company Stanhope Baol founded/located?

And I don't know of anyone collecting stoves... but maybe others will know.
