Antique stove parts. Littleton, Ma???

PostBy: DePippo79 On: Mon Apr 21, 2014 8:32 pm

Hey guys. Been running on the Fitchburg line during the day last couple of weeks. At the old Littleton (corner of Taylor and King St.) train station I noticed a few old ranges outside and a pile of miscellaneous antique stove parts load doors, etc. between the station and tracks. Been by hundreds of times, but first time noticing the stove stuff. Any of the new england/Ma members know anything? Currently don't have time to go investigate. Matt

Hey Matt, the owners name is David Erickson, aka Erickson Antique Stoves 2 Taylor st. Littleton, Ma. 978-857-8014 :) good guy, he has done some nice work for "this old house" and some wealthy folks in the Back Bay of Boston. We have talked and from talking with him I get the impression he doesn't do a lot...could be some good deals!

Mike.

Thanks guys. I might have to make time to go visit/call. Starting Monday I'll be back on nights so I'll have my days back to mess around. Doug(whistlenut) glad the Liesure Line is finally on line. Still getting to cold at night to chance shutting down the central heating system to install my new radiator (I know if I drain it we'll get a cold snap. Murphys Law). I still have to get the old fittings out and clean it up. The Glenwood is doing a fine job keeping the house toasty during these wild temp swings. Another member might be able to help me out with the Stanley firepot still need to call him. Friend and I still would like to go get bit. coal and fireworks in PA. I also still need to go talk with my railroad friend up north. Oh and my sister called me the other night. Her car is pissing trans. fluid everywhere and my friends truck does not stop. Yeah busy off season coming up. Also have a "to do" list from the wife. Everyone take care. Matt
