I had a great visit with Emery and Brandon at the Stove Hospital yesterday.
I decided to bring the Crawford No. 3 down for them to look over.
It turns out it's in pretty good shape. It was converted to kerosene at some point, which helped preserve the firepot. It needs a new barrel and fortunately Emery has the missing trim I need, including a nice nickeled dome - hope he has the finial, as well.
He plans to finish the Hub Heater soon, we dropped off in early June. My wife and I can't wait to see it.
I learned a lot yesterday, especially what serious artists both Emery and Brandon are.
