I, too, have a Red Cross Oak stove, but mine is an RO-316, manufactured by the Co-operative Foundry in Rochester, NY in the late 19th century. The stove is a knockoff of the Round Oak stove of Dowagiac, MI. where they were manufactured by P.D. Beckwith. Round Oak was named for the fact that you had a door to the wood burning furnace of the stove large enough to insert a round oak firewood piece, meaning you didn't have to split the oak firewood to fit it into the stove furnace. I have attempted to find info on the Co-operative Foundry in Rochester but have had little success. If you know anyone that might have parts for this stove, I would appreciate it. I need the finial wings, handle for the primary draft, some other draft control pieces and one base ring and one footrest ring. Any help in finding any of these would be a big help. Hope I provided some answers to help you.
have a nice day, Marty
