Hey Doug, Congrats on the super deal!!
Could you do all of us a favor? Take a measuring tape and measure the stove,: height, pot diameter, pot depth, etc??
I can't find my measuring stick calibrated in croquet mallet-lengths.
Then, for us technical minded folks a few more interesitng measurements and observations please:
measure the outside width of the base, from side to side across the ashpan door, give us a width of the ashpan door,
then an inside measurement of the inside of the ashpan chamber..
What I'm looking for is to subract the inside dimension from the outside and the difference will be the width of the
exhaust heating passageways on each side of the ashpan chamber.. I'm guessing about 2" on each side?.
And would you tell me if the bottom of the ashpan chamber is a single thickness of metal, or is it a double layer,
therefore, is it too is heated by the exhaust ? From the photos I dont' think the bottom is a double walled passageway,
And, it would be greatly appreciated if there was a step by step detailed photo-essay of the dissassembly of the stove and
reassembly.. it will be a nice summer 'Forum-Project'
OH, please use your camera only in the upright mode, I'm getting motion-sickness from laying on my side to view the
sideways photos.. You can save the photos on your computer and most have a way of rotating the image before posting.
A true baseburner for less than $200, man you should go to church this Sunday and put a a few bills in the plate!!
