Does that apply to the size of your antique stove collection?

nortcan ..... your almost there and just in time before the cold weather rolls in. She really, really came out nice. You never cease to amaze me the job that you do on your stoves. Keep up the good work. One other thing, no wonder I can't find any wheels down here, thats because you have them all on the bottom of your moving cart up there. :shifty:

Thanks Franco. Yes that stove is really a curious one with almost 100 parts in it. Seems very well ingeneered but I hope it will work as a "good" stove.
About the veg. maybe I made a mistake (an other one :) when I mentionned it. But I'm not in any sect group. :lol:

I agree Richard, that the veg diet is probably the healthiest for people although I for one cannot bring myself to actually do it totally. I do grow a decent sized veg garden every year and love to eat out of it like I am now. My problem is that I love to cook and eat. It's the only "vice" I have left ;) I haven't smoked for quite a while and never really did allot and I hardly ever drink any more. A cold beer once in a while and a nice wine with dinner, is hard to forgo. My "philosophy" is everything in moderation and not too much of any one thing. :)


Thanks Steve for the words. What's left: mica's, those on the stove were dirty and not all the same...(new are coming), some small adjustments and finish the tile work.
But for the veg. lifestyle, don't be afraid: I still love beer,wine,cakes...in fact actually not many peoples eat 3 meals of meat :D

Nortcan, you did nothing wrong. You made a joke about me comparing stoves to Bologna Sandwiches and Steak. I understood it and laughed. You understood my comparison and agreed that it was a good comparison. And YES, the Baltimore Heater is going to be a good stove. Remember, you had the same questions about the Bride before you used it and now you know. It will be the same with this stove.

Thank Buck 24. In fact the job finised(almost) much earlier than I supposed to. Not the easiest stove to play with :mad:
If you need some wheels, just let me know and I will send you as many as you want :lol:

Anyways William, if it was not coming from you, I probably would still be feeding the Vigll for a long time...but so happy that you kick my mind and helped me to discover these craftman stoves. Every time I look at antique stoves, I get in a sort of dream, from the past and from the present time. Well not shure my translated words tell what I mean, but I know that you are able to ""translate"" my English to good English.

Not afraid at all Pierre :) Actually most of the summer I live out of the garden, lots of salads, stir frys, and pasta's with different (whatever I have)veg. Like to grill somethings though (ribs or burgers) and in the winter on/in the cookstove, a nice stew or chili slow cooked in the dutch oven is hard to beat! :D

Steve, with all these good menus, it looks like you'r preparing a trip up to Québec. But as you said yourself, moderation is the best to do, so that will make more beers for me :lol:

Thanks carlherrnstein! In fact yes the insinglass make the difference. These are the "old" ones, I shouds have put them on when I sent the final photos but...
I will use these mica for making tests: I will cut the base of the upper door's mica just a little to try to send some air over the fire :?:
