Stove looks very nice,
Have any pictures showing the inside of those doors where the handles have been removed for plating ? My handles were pretty persistent about staying on the doors. This spring I may remove mine for plating and tap the handle for a bolt when I put it back together with the latch (pawl).
I'll get you some pictures of the inside of the doors this afternoon when I get back from the Dr. Anything you need a picture of I can get. The stove is under fire so all I can't get to are the grates. I didn't do the restoration of the stove. That was done by BarnStableStove.
Much appreciated Jason, the picture in the link to your other thread before Doug did the restoration looks like it shows the loading door handle was previously plated but its hard to tell about the ash pan door handle ? I will go back and read that thread later this evening.
I may have to light off my stove tonight !
Here are the pics of the inside of the doors. Doug took my handles off and then welded them back together after they had been replaced. Personally, I think welding is stronger, but tapping and putting in a screw would make it easier to work with. Sorry one of the pics is sideways. I tried rotating it several times and it just isn't working for me tonight.
