The ones I did find, do not have any parts available for them anymore and were missing parts. I would think that the grates may be very difficult to find. But maybe some of the after market grates might be able to work?
That is really the biggest problem. If anything is missing or broken it is almost guaranteed that you will have to make it. Back in their day they were the cat's meow but those days are gone. Its grand all right, kind of like having a pipe organ instead of a electronic keyboard in your .
I would not want to move and install one, the first thing that comes to mind is the height. The ceiling to floor height has risen considerably, so it may require significant modifications to install. Perhaps a massive concrete base. Or a massive steel or iron collar. To be honest with you, it isn't worth anything compared to today's stuff unless it's sitting in the house when you buy it. But it will blow you out of the house with heat!
