Oh yea Old Man Winter does not stand a chance this year
Stove is not set up yet, picked it up used, it is in great shape but due to basement storage had some rust spots peppered all over. I have taken the stove apart and have completly stripped all the pieces using wire brush attachments for my drill, grinding wheel and angle grinder. All the components are stripped and I am about halfway done with the body. With any luck I hope to have it ready for paint by this weekend.
Once the stove is painted it is on to building the hearth pad, installing heat shields and getting the stove pipe installed. Will surely be installing a barometric damper.
Last weekend I built my coal bin, painted the exterior and water sealed the interior, it is all set and ready for 3 tons of coal.
