Great job and unique stove, can't wait to see it finished I would love to acid dip my stove parts. How do you dispose of the acid bath after you are done?
I used the acid solution to get my cast iron pipe for making the magazine cleaned and it worked very well. When finished, you can keep the acid in a safe covered container for an other cleaning job or dilute it with water and neutralize it by adding baking soda so it will ge a neutral PH. Then you can dispose of it safely.
Just remind to be safe with acid products
