you sure you're going to have a few hours to help me deliver a stove yet this spring ?
keep at it brother there are more out there waiting and few will get better attention than you are lavishing on these.
Wow Steve, I had to sit back and think about that for a bit. If I recall when you guys were over I think the Home Stove Works #25 was blasted, partially painted, and starting to go back together.
The Hero Dockash is back together with the exception of the mica and firepot that needs repair and recast.
The International Star just needs mica, and now that the finial, swing top, footrests and door patterns I needed for the $50 Brilliant Sunshine are back , (They are identical stoves except for the nameplate) they can be plated and that one is done.
While I was waiting for the recast parts to come back from Tomahawk I blasted the Acme Carbon.
The two G6's, the Herald, and the Brilliant Sunshine are apart at the shop but I didn't get around to blasting them yet.
The only other one I'm working on is a Pittston Porcelain range for one of my neighbors. That one needs quite a bit of repairs to the firebox.
So I guess my answer is nine in various stages.
All I need is a few days notice my friend, I'm looking forward to that little project! It's spring here in Pennsylvania, so when you are ready I'm game.
As far as more waiting out there to be rescued, I still have a few years work with the ones buried in the trailers.
Five of the nine are already adopted, and the Home Stove Works #25 is mine.
Looks like I'll have to set some time aside this fall to convert a few more oil and wood burners over to the black rocks.
