Wehrle Co Moose No 58S Model 226.


16OCT2014

Hello Philip,
How are you? We found your email address on the Nerkahia website next to your dad's photo. My husband and I are hoping you can tell us some thing about our Wehrle Co Moose No 58S Model 226. We have searched the web and can only find information about the 225. We'd like to know what year it was made and there's a part missing inside that we would like to replace. You can see in the attached photo that there is a piece of broken metal attached with a screw or bolt.

In the other photo you can see how bad the ash pan is. We'd like to restore it to functional condition so we can enjoy using it.

Our stove was used by my husband's mother on an Apple Farm in Inyo Kern, CA. He has fond memories of his mom using the stove and we would like to bring it back to life. We are not interested in it's market value as we intend to enjoy it in memory of his mom. Knowing the year it was manufactured would simply be an interesting factoid. If you don't mind, we'd appreciate any information you can give us. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Please, if you know anything could you share it with me? If you need a pic I can provide that for you.. But on the door of the stove the words are, Logwood No. 130 The Wehrle Co. NEWARK Ohio.

jewett and root

perfect national excelsior
I thought you might like to see 2 of my other stoves. The rectangle stove is a Jewett & Root manufactured in Buffalo, New York. I think it was made around 1860 or so. The round one was refurbished when i bought it. They chromed the pieces that should of been nickeled but it still looks good. That one is #161 by Perfect National Excelsior Stove Manufacture Co. Quincy, ILL. Not sure when that one was made I think early 1920's, 1930's

Philip,
I inherited my grandparents old cook stove when they passed away in Linden, Pennsylvania. Would like to replace the firebox liner so the stove can be safely used. Was wondering if you could direct me to a craftsman that would be able to make me a new one.

I also have the original cardboard instruction sheet that came with the stove.

little winner
Little Winner 552" Wehrle Wood Stove.
27JAN13

My wife and I recently bought an old farmstead in Wisconsin and in one of the buildings was an "8-16 Little Winner 552" wood stove. In fairly good shape (one crack that would need welding, and a little rust). Was wondering when it was manufactured.

Took it apart today and steel bristle brushed off the surface rust. Was thinking of giving the parts a coat of stove black before reassembling it. Other than that, any suggerstions how to preserve the metal-- for display purposes -- I probably would not use it for cooking/heating -- even though I do still heat with wood.

I have since done some other research on cast iron. I think i'll just go with stove black, reassemble the pieces, and fire it up one time to give it the natural burned look.

We plan to display it inside in a sun room, an addition to the original farm house that was built in 1860 of 16" square pine logs notched in the special manner used by the Norwegians.

This is the farm house I grew up in, and now 50 years later is again back in the family. My wife and I are loving it!!

Thanks for any help,

I recently purchased a #1230 ARDMORE stove and it and I, need help. In order to move it to my home, the insides were taken out and put into boxes. Now, I can't figure out how to put it back together.

Hi Philip

I cannot find another stove like mine on the Internet sites so I would like to know more about it.
cortez plate

The housing appears to be tin. The heating unit within is cast iron and on the cast iron door is the company name.

I THINK the stove is from the 1950's by its design and likely made for Sears which owned the Wehrle factory at that point. We have been using it since 1980 (came with a cabin we purchased) and it still works perfectly.

Thanks again,

Wehrle #214
Wehrle #214 "Dictator" Double – Cased Parlor Stove
19NOV10

Hello Philip,

Found your contact information through the Newark Stove website you have put together. Thanks for your excellent efforts as they give me a much better idea of who was responsible for making this great stove and the history connected to it.

Hope you or one of the site’s visitors can help me. I’ve been trying to research my WEHRLE #214 “DICTATOR” Double – Cased Parlor Stove to locate an original finial and Swing Top cover. It is marked The WEHRLE Co. Newark Ohio on the main door and believe it was made sometime around 1910.

I was wondering if there are any original Wehrle catalogs or photographs that might exist in your collection to see exactly what the stove/parts would have looked like. If not, can you suggest where I may look to locate catalogs, microfiche or any persons with parts or reference materials for early 1900s Wehrle stoves?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Attached is a photo of my stove.

Thanks in advance,
