Well franco, your comments got me thinking. Thanks!
I've made arrangements for Bryant's to do a 116 for me. I was able to see the stove before they began working on it. It didn't look too bad but needed a complete rework including new grates and refractory cement lining. When they removed the old lining the side of the fire pot broke out. It was badly corroded and ready to go anyway. They had a replacement in hand so no big deal. It will also have a new barrel and back-pipe complete with the original diverter, divider plate and cap. I've seen the finished product (less the trim pieces which are out for plating) and it looks nice.
In all honesty, I really wanted a No.6 but am unable to pay the big bucks they seem to require. I haven't given up on the thought though. In fact, I just bought one this past Friday! It is going to take some hunting for parts but eventually I'll get it together. I've started some discussion here: http://nepacrossroads.com/about30326.html
I managed to drop a full cup of coffee on my digital camera as it sat in the console of my truck. It is quite dead now so no pics until I get a replacement.
