I did get a response...the company I contacted said they were't the same company (but they were from the same town with the same name....odd that). She was probably just a newbie maybe. I'll keep poking.

I was able to find some recipe's for old school stove polish....I think all the ingredients are still available so that's on the ta-doo list as well.

Some of those old stove polishes weren't complicated. This is one that has only three ingredients. I know the person who's job it was to mix it and then fill the tins.

Paul, is that 'old stock' or is that currently available?. If it's not available...think the fella will give us the recipe?.

No long, hot Summer this year. It' going to be wet, cool and very short. Especially in the Great Lakes Region. Everyone needs to get their winter acts together well BEFORE October. Any extra money you can put towards the coal pile should be spent on it.
Here is the rain forecast for the next 50 days. There is going to be lots of rain for most people this summer.

Same here.....I may run a small load of charcoal through it if we get a cool evening. I'm sure it'll see a fire of some sort before fall but probably not a coal fire.

I've got wood and will have coal come July......so I hope your forecast is wrong. :D (it's starting out to be somewhat correct though...hmmph).

I got the paint treatment so the Wings will spend a few days in the drive connected to some temporary pipe heated with charcoal. No light it up, open the window and perhaps the stink will eventually go away will be tolerated by the ruling class here. Even the smell of the refractory lining setting is causing issues.

I hear ya there......"if momma aint happy, aint nobody happy".

I know your stove is painted (I was fussin' with it the day before you got there :P ) but if you ever get to a fork in the road where you either need to re-paint or strip it and polish it.......consider polishing it. I've always had painted stoves and I have always liked the look but polish looks killer. I don't think it'd look good on a modern stove but on an old gal it looks great (smells good too).

I just picked up some 'Imperial Stove Polish' at a local hardware and it seems to be good stuff.

Sorry - didn't mean to send you on a search. I can tell you the answer.

While Baldwins still makes many extracts (really good extracts, by the way), the StaZ-ON hasn't been made in many years. The last batches were mixed by my Fiancée and one of her brothers back when they were kids. The few remaining cans we found in her father's garage were handed out to family.
