Pictures, some of us do not know a lot about legacy coal burning appliances. Those that do do not use computers if you catch my drift.

Too many of those Colunbian Monsters got me in trouble as a youth. toothy --but, looking fwd to pix of your Sweetheart. My old Home Comfort had alot of rust on the porcelain top sections/bread warmers & I used naval jelly & real, real fine steel-wool. But mostly it was just alot of elbow grease--the rust was not deep, mostly surface--again, looking fwd to pix. Is it with or without the reservoir?? Welcome to the Forum :) Where are you from--there's a place in your avatar for that--Promise, nobody'll steal ya :lol:

I use a wire brushs on an angle grinder to remove rust. Keep the rust away? Use the stove...
