Need help finding a part

PostBy: Kalindi On: Sat Sep 22, 2012 4:23 pm

Hello everyone!

We have Rathbone and Sarde Acorn base burner. We are almost ready to start burning coal for the first time. We have a few things left to complete, including a set of windows that needs to go back in (had to drill the screws out), connecting the flue, and some polishing of the nickel (we are waiting until next year to have the nickel re-plated).

However, there is one piece in the back, a very simple 5 3/4 in. diameter plate that covers what we think is supposed to be a second flue option (possibly?). Anyway, this simple 5 3/4in plate is missing. Does anyone know where we can get a plate to cover this hole?

Thanks in advance,
Kalindi

If you talked about the exit connector to send heat to the upper level, it's not an obligation to have a cover on it. In fact it's supposed to be an open port if you don't put a stove pipe on it. The cover used on these exits are made to let the radiant warm air flows out in the room.
On my Bride, the cover was also missing so I made one.

Thanks for replying Nortcan. That is not the part I am looking for. I took a pic so I could explain better. This is definitely a piece that needs to be covered. It is right above the exhaust leaving. If it is not sealed, all the smoke would simply escape into the room. We think it was for a second flue to be run upstairs. Maybe you have a better take on the need for it.

You simply require a standard stove lid to cover that spot. That is the place to put the tea kettle, coffee pot and to inspect inside for dirt build up. It should be very easy to find a lid to fit the opening.

Yes, we thought it would be easy to find also. It was not as easy as we thought. I was hoping someone here would know of a place off the beaten path that I have not been able to come across myself.

Anyplace that does lathe work could easily turn down a 6 inch plate to fit.

I agree with Richard that the easiest thing would be to fine a common 6" lid and turn it down at a machine shop. For a lid specific to your acorn, you might try The Antique stove hospital (call and ask for Emory) or Bryant's stove here in Maine. Another source for midwestern cast stoves would The Rusty Iron Ranch. They might possibly have one or know a source. Ebay you can keep an eye out too. You could make a wood exact copy of the burner lid that you want and have it cast at Tomahawk Foundry or Auburn Stove foundry, or make one out of plate steel is probably even easier. Best of luck.

Thanks a lot. I will try calling a few places in the morning and see if anyone has what I am looking for. If not, I think we will go with some sort of steel made replacement until we find what we need. Right now we are concerned with heat for the winter and don't want to dilly dally a whole lot. We will worry about getting it looking fabulous piece by piece after we have her burning great.
