This is the hinged plate that I haven't seen ona stove before. At first I thought it was a vent for the magazine, but it seems like they went thru a lot more work with the hinge and stops just to create a vent.

There are captions on the pictures describing the views.

There is a 3/8" gap behind the door extending down to the firepot. In the second picture you can see the offset cast into the rear lip of the magazine maintaining the 3/8" gap.

Summer is almost gone, and before we know it the heating season will be here. I spent most of the summer on outdoor projects but figured I better get my broken footrest repaired and missing nameplate pattern made, so I can get them recast and plated.

I didn't want to dismantle any more of the stove, until these projects were done and fitted so I put my mind to it and got started.

After giving up searching for the correct name plate shelf, I decided to find one close to the size and modify it to fit. I picked up three different ones on ebay, and settled on the Wherle .

The plan was to grind off the lettering, cut it to fit the contour of the stove, add a filler to compensate for shrinkage, add mounting tabs, and personalize it with our family name, without doing any modifications to the stove itself.

I will post a few pictures of the progress I made so far this past week.

The next step was to fill in the ends with bondo, build out two tabs so that it will hook around the existing wings and attach it to the stove.

Added a little bondo to the contour and tabs to compensate for casting shrinkage, and cut in and extended the pattern grooves.

Rather than attempting to recreate the grooved background behind the raised lettering, I found a suitable hard decorative craft paper at Michael's Craft Store and glued it in.

I also found a set of 1-1/2" plastic letters with a period font that I could bend to the contour and glue on the background.
