Over 25 years ago, my SIL got a divorce and had to sell an old farmhouse near Carlisle. The new owners were going to tear the house down so my FIL removed everything he could from the house before closing. It all ended up in my basement... Most of it (baby bed, kid's swing set, old appliances, etc.) was used and/or sold off long ago but the biggest item is still downstairs & with the way things are going with the country & economy, it may be time to put it back into use. It's a Morso 1bo woodstove imported from Denmark. Original cost was over $3000 from what we were told. It's a beautiful piece of work: We've gone over it with a fine tooth comb & it's in perfect condition inside & out EXCEPT for a hairline crack in what are called the lower deck plates in the top portion: The crack starts at the back of the cleaning cap on the right hand side & extends into the ornamental railing across the top of the stove. We don't **think** it would affect the usability/safety of the stove but then we haven't used one in over 30 years. Opinions????? On a related note, does anyone know what all would be involved in installing it in our walkout basement & running a chimney pipe up the side of the house?
