Looks to be fairly clean. Best to get the working guts recast now rather than after they warp. Tomahawk Foundry in Rice Lake, Wis. is the place to go. The firepot, ring , and grate bars can be hard to find so do them while it's convenient.

Yes indeed, that has been formost on top of my list!! now if i could just find that bag of "potters" sand mix and the release powder..... where the heck is that pouring caldron?????

Since it seems many of the stove companies used the same duplex grate systems, didnt they also use "standard" fire pots?

inquiring minds want to know.. a ford starter, fit a fairlane or a mustang or a f100...... :shock:

It looks like you have a good stove there. This is one of the later, post 1910 models. These have fairly hefty castings, latches etc. This will be a reliable and efficient stove when finished.

Another great stove saved from the graveyard, looks to be a real winner to me. I suppose William would agree it's Gods work to reclaim all those that are savable from a fiery death (recycling). I have dream of being one of the worlds great coal stove savers but meanwhile it's damned cold and 10 horse stalls need the $hit shoveled out of them, the barn toilet won't flush and a horse kicked down two sections of fence..... Some are born to greatness, some have greatness shoved upon them and some are destined for oblivion.

thanks It was advertised as 1909. Is there a positive id method that could differentiate the year? what are the benchmarks ?

"I have a 1909 Imperial Ringgold Parlor Stove for sale. This Stove is a piece of Pennsylvania History. It was recently salvaged from the Franklin County Sugar Mill. This Stove, with a little TLC, could be like-new. I have ALL of the parts that go with it. The only damage to the Stove is in the glass, which can be replaced (Damage shown in pics). " the advert.....

the plating? the round head screws? it is a fun detective project on the road to Stover Whisperer..... 8-)

Simon.....think forward..... sand casting, kiln, iron ore...... plating....save your nickles :shock: :D

noStalling for a Crappy job :roll:

68 panes.... when done it will become the main heat source and the Kodiak will hibernate till Ringo proves his ability...

it will be period correct for the house..being one yr older ....

also it will solve the pesky problem of top floor heat. It has a choice between direction of convection heat direction, out rear of its Heat Trap Hat, or flip a lever and it allows concentrated hot air to go up a transition ducting to the upstairs...

the currently installed floor grates should allow even heat thru out the house...

interesting read of the history of early franklin co pa.....

bet old freetown F was a regular at Pawlings Tavern in his youth..... :drunk:

checking the arrest records now.......
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/ ... nnsylvania

contrary to popular belief that freetown's last name is fred, it appears his uncle Benjamin is a founding name of which Mr.Fred can send me several currency notes, appropriately named, for my silence regarding his early record.. sort of like a sponge-ing his record thing..... 8-)

p.s. having a day off is such a new experience for me :lol:

learning about the land and where to farm was a plus in the "barrens"

http://genealogytrails.com/penn/frankli ... story.html

"It is a tradition well supported, that a great part of the best lands in the Conococheague valley were, at the first settlement of the country, what is now called in the western states prairie. The land was without timber, covered with a rich, luxuriant grass, with some scattered trees, hazel-bushes, wild plums, and crab-apples. It was then called generally ' the barrens." The timber was to be found on or near the water-courses, and on the slate soil. This accounts for the preference given by the early Scotch-Irish settlers to the slate lands, before the limestone lands were surveyed or located. The slate had the attractions of wood, watercourses, and water-meadows, and was free from rock at the surface. Before the introduction of clover, artificial grasses, and the improved system of agriculture, the hilly limestone land had its soil washed off, was disfigured with great gullies, and was sold as unprofitable, for a trifle, by the proprietors, who sought other lands in Western Pennsylvania. It is now, under German cultivation, the most beautiful and fertile section of the county."
