Does anyone have a number for Larry? I've been calling the number on his website so I can order parts from him today but the phone just rings and rings and rings. I don't even hear an answering machine pick-up to leave a message. Although, it does go; "Beep, Beep" after about 9 rings. Is that his answering machine?

I know I sound like a moron.

Yeah, been doing that too. Haven't heard from him since before July 4th. Guess, there is nothing for me to do and now wait for him to get back to me.

He will get back to you. Lots of people on vacation this week.

What have you decided on for a finish on the stove?

IOF, if you get a chance, take a pic of the 3M sanding disk, I'd like to see what it looks like.

I'm eying the Stove Bright Redwood with the doors, legs and top polished black. I still have to strip the legs I'll be doing that this weekend after I take them off.

I may leave the base coat of black I originally painted it maybe it'll make the redwood a bit darker of a color.

On a side note, does anyone know if this is Larry? http://stores.ebay.com/mygoods4u2

That is what I thought too. I mean, they appear to be in Larry's area and the prices reflect those on Larry's site so I'm wondering if it is Larry.

Confirmed. It is Larry. If you check the shipping info the sellers phone number is there and it is Larry's number. I'm going to purchase the grate and ash pan from Ebay and will call him with the other stuff I need.

Just spoke to Larry, he is going to ship out my grate and ash pan (when he gets it, apparently the ash pan is back ordered). He also said that if the fire pot is not out of round that I could have a bar and tab welded on it to hold the grate centered. So, that's what I'm going to try.

Good luck getting parts from Larry. I waited a long time for parts on a Chubby I picked up 2 years ago. I ended up selling it to him and got a Harman. Maybe he wanted it that way. Get a stove to fix up or fix it up himself. I like him but waiting months for parts isn't good.

Hope you were just an exception. I asked him how much lead time he needed on things like the fire pot and shaker grate and he said they were typically in stock.

He said he was shipping the grate out today. Hopefully he does. I figure I'll give him two weeks from last Friday for the pan. If he still doesn't have it I'll see if he will refund my money and I'll see about having one made up for me at the local steel yard by my house.

I still need the full view door and the shaker rod assembly from him. Other than that the stove is pretty much done other than painting it.

I agree with you JPete, I think captcaper's story has to be an exception. I just ordered up a new fire pot from Larry and It was delivered to me before my check got to him.

So, don't worry I'm-on-fire, if Larry can't get you what you want he will tell you right up front.
