Oh well get rid of one hobby for the other. At least stoves give me heat in return the boat is a hole in the water .
OH, HELL NO! Never give up your toys,take another punch or kick, but this is comming from a unmarried man.Besides i'm sure she will be rubbing your back when she's nice and warm from the stoves.
Don't worry I had told my wife i was selling the boat before I bought this stove. I just reminded her that I was selling something I really loved. I do love the sail boat but I don't get to use it enough and I want a newer one in a few more years. I need something that I can rig easier by myself. You need at least 2 people to rig my current one... well to get the mast up.
Anyways I have enough toys, trust me
The stove hobby is something I really love to work on even more than my motorcycles and cars to be honest.
So here is some photos. I cleaned up the zephyr some and put a little bit of oil on the top .
From the ashes it looks like anthracite was the last type of fuel used in this stove but maybe some of you guys can confirm if this is an anthracite stove or not. I am pretty sure its a coal stove because you can't get much wood in that thing.
Also there are some things on there I don't know what they were used for so you cook stove experts can help me out.
I needed the top frame pieces because my current 414a doesnt fit right. The firebrick in this is mostly busted up but I can use it to recast some bricks.
what are all these control for?
The oven in good condition. no rust through
I am assuming this is how you turn the grates. the tools for this are MIA does anyone have any photos of what a period correct tool would look like and I can remake them. Also that top pull out, what would you use that for? Toast or something?
What exactly does this do?
Good quick heat
but expensive kerosine
What was this section of the stove used for?
The tank above has been repaired on the back so I will make a new SS tank. Can you guys tell me how or what these tanks used for if they were not pressurized? maybe to wash cloths or dishes?
in the image above you will see the only damage I could find on the stove. I small piece of the casting broke where there was a bolt. no big deal I'll fix that.
Let me know if any come out sidways. I upload these from my phone to my ftp server and this retarded linux machine I am using will show them sideways but my phone up and down....this computer has issues.
