If anyone wants to contact him about buying an antique stove, or having stove work done, call 508-763-8941.
I almost posted it the other day but I thought he'd drop in and give it out (he's posted it in a few threads I've seen).
Did you get the #6 assembled and in place yet?.
I haven't finished the living room where it's going, but I'm working on getting everything I need to hook it up. Got stove pipe and thimble. Just have to chop a hole into the chimney. The range in the kitchen is on slate, but I could inset it into the two linoleum floors they put over the original maple flooring so that the slates are flush. Nothing to trip over, or ledge to have to stand on while cooking.
For the #6, it'll be out into the living room, on a hardwood floor, with doorways on each side. I was looking for something thinner like hearth boards. That is until I saw the prices.
I have some large pieces of one inch slate in the basement, left over from the covers of the cold air chase to the old coal octopus furnace. I think I'll wrestle one upstairs and that will be my stove hearth.
In the meantime, I've got some of the bright bits unwrapped and sitting on a table in the TV room where I can look at them and dream of the day I'll be looking at them with the glow of a coal fire coming through those mice windows.
Here's a pic of some of the shiny stuff. The bonnet on the left is from the #6 - the one on the right is from my Glenwood Modern Oak 118. I still have to brush the excess polish out of the details the 118 bonnet.
