Beautiful house! Beautiful Stove!! and a 'not bad' Model A
So now that you have been burning in the Ruby some, what is your 'take' on the 'dump grates' and the ring grate?
I have an Art Garland that has the same arrangement,, and the dump grates look like they might be a bit 'dangerous' for the fire.
I think you probably put the handle on and just 'Jiggle' the grates? and vigorously use the ring grate?
I also have a small baseburner, a Keystone 11 that has a small, 9" fire pot, and only has the 'dump grate' so if I ever get it in operation, I'll have to be
carefull when shaking down the fire..
You do nice work!!
