i am a chimney sweep and have seen quite a few of these still in operation some burning coal like intended some wood. they can be safe if there are no cracks but definatly not eficient. but they are still legal to use i am sure you could put in a wood stove but a modern woodstove will almost definatly need a liner installed to work properly

That's looking on the bright side like a dyed-in-the-wool old-house owner! :D :lol:
