That is gonna be some rig Keith! I like the nickel grate shake door. First one I've seen with that. I can imagine that in the past this was how people differentiated their stove with others by the nickel combinations.

I've seen them with nickel draft covers, nickel bases, etc. My 6 has the handles nickel.
Just for fun look on the underside of the skirt pieces to see if there is a hand written casting date there. Someone scratched the casting date in the mold that made the skirts to my stove. I only discovered it recently.

Very clean job Keith.
Do you have your own welding machine and if so what do you have? If not just forget my question.

I just got one a couple weeks ago, a ""big :D " 110V one. It's an arc welding machine and I was not shure it could do the small jobs I was planning to do, specially around the stove's cast iron surround. But I'm very satisfied with a $99.00 one, that reminded me that I didn't weld since a long time but for small job it's OK. I wouldn't make a trailer with it but I don't need a trailer for now :lol:

Thanks Steve,
Here it is with the some nickel that still needs replated and it is very dusty. I am planning to call Jack at Nu Chrome this week or next and see if he is up and running again and then I can send it off.

Your door handles are what got me wanting to have mine done originally, they like Steve's give enough but dont send the stove over the top in the too much nickel factor in my opinion.

I just checked the skirts and I dont see anything hand written in the piece, just the model and part number like the rest of the pieces have.That is very interesting yours has it, what year does it say ?

You will enjoy that "big 110v" machine and find out how very handy they are around the house, if you build a trailer just lay down a few extra beads :) .

I have a Lincoln Mig and an old Century Arc (stick). The Century is pretty cool in the fact it has an extra plug for the leads that it will actually use a welding rod to cut steel with up to 1/2". I bought it years ago from a guy that had a bulldozer bussiness. When you turn it on the street lights get dim :D (just kidding).
I would like to dig deeper into the Miller 220's before I buy another one because they weld very nice.

This lincoln does pretty well for around the house on most jobs.

Does anyone know anything about this chair, it came from my fathers side of the family. I have always called it Jack Frost beause he looks like he is getting ready to blow in the Winter. It does not have the clawed feet, just regular but the arms are scribbed. I can get it away from the radiator cover background for a better picture if needed.

William may know something about the chair or maybe multiscope? Looks pretty cool.

I see you have the pot lined and it looks like a real nice smooth job. Was that done prior (when you got it) or is that newly done?

I have my Bro in Law's Lincoln Ranger in my barn. It's a nice welder and a gennie too. Has an Onan twin on it of maybe 18-20hp. I never use it though. He always does what I need. ;)

I did the fire pot a few weeks ago, when I started removing what was in there I found out it had the original bricks in it. They came out in several small pieces each, it would have been nice to get one out complete or in just a few pieces but such is the luck.

There were several garden tractors and generators that used those Onan engines and they run very well,I have a couple here actually but parts have gotten expensive and harder to find to rebuild them. Cummins bought them out a few years ago and they still have some parts available $$$$ !

Yeah, I seem to remember that about the Onan's from my sailboating days. We owned a 45ft ketch and it used an Onan powered generator. Of course everything is more expensive when it's for a boat or even more so an airplane. :shock:

Looks like you are doing an awesome job on the restoration! The seal on the back of the stove where the back smoke shelf and the sheet metal join is particularly problematic. I imagine you are going to put some rope gasket there also when you put that together. I'll be very interested in hearing how it works for you. Last year I pulled mine apart there and put furnace cement all around that join and then bolted it back together. Looks good for this year at this point. I don't know how long it will last though. I thought about putting rope gasket in there but there is not much to hold it so opted just for the cement. Let us know how you do that joint.

Another question, did you take the dampers off the doors? If so how do they come off? I've been thinking about taking mine off but don't know how to remove them.

The chair is a, an Art Deco chair in the Lyre Style, ie it resembles a harp. It could date from the 20's up to the 30's. I would have to look at it in person to tell more about it.
The stove is coming along nicely. Doing it yourself will make it yours in a way that makes it very personal. You are doing a great job and I know that the performance of the stove will show it.
