Keeper. I was looking for a small parlor stove for my 300 year old house when I found this. After I bought it I came on here to see if anyone knew anything about it and discovered this thread. That looks like the same stove, just figured I would add to this thread instead of starting a new one. Can you offer any info? Good source for mika?
I thought I would lightly sandblast the exterior then use black metal polish on it. Both boot rack mounts are broken, I can weld that. Fix the hinge pins, replace the mica and most of the hardware and it should be safe to use. The stack seems to be an odd size. 4 9/16 ID, 4 11/16 OD. It looks like the pipe should go over the stove connector. Every other stove I have had connects the other way so any creosote from burning wood would run back into the stove, not down the outside.
