where to buy stove black?

PostBy: dlj On: Sun May 08, 2011 5:41 pm

I'm been doing a search on where to buy stove black and can't seem to find where it's been talked about. I could have sworn somebody had posted on here where you can still buy stove black.

Can someone please post again where it can be had? I don't want to paint my stove again. I just want to use the old stove black....

Thanks,

dj

Do you know if these products can be applied on a painted stove? I read that some products like William... are not for use on painted stoves.
I also look for a product I could apply on a painted stove as said on the first post by dlj.

Found this product description for Williams on Amazon.com. One tube was $14.95

Product Description
Williams Stove Polish 3.5 oz. tube brings a satin black finish to cast-iron and sheet metal stoves. Excellent for andirons, fireplace screens, stovepipe, and fireplaces, as well as antique iron pot and kettles. Made from graphite and carbon black. For over 100 years, Williams Stove Polish has been used to bring a beautiful low-luster black finish to unpainted cast iron surfaces. Rely on this black satin semi-paste polish to restore the finish on steel and cast iron wood stoves, coal stoves, barbecues, hibachis, andirons, ornamental ironwork, iron posts and kettles. Made from graphite and carbon black pigments. Contains no waxes, smelly solvents, or flammable materials. Do not use on a hot stove. Use only on cold cast iron or steel. Remove loose rust with a wire brush or steel wool. Wipe off dirt and dust with a soft rag. Squeeze polish onto rag and apply to stove. After drying for a few minutes, rub briskly with a clean cloth until cloth comes away clean. Cleans up with soap and water. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact with eyes occurs, flush thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Keep out of reach of children.

I don't think there is any paint left on my stove. If there is, it won't be there long, I'll wire brush the whole stove, then apply the stove black. I very much prefer the look of stove black over paint...

You should be able to get Stove Blacking from any decent fireplace or stove shop. I use William's because it doesn't have a paraffin base. Rutland has paraffin in it and so it smokes pretty bad until it cures.
Yes you can put stove polish over painted areas. It works perfectly over paint. After you use stove polish you can't go back to paint though. Paint will no longer adhere to a surface that has been treated with stove polish. No matter, I quit wasting my time painting stoves decades ago. Paint always fades to a dull gray and comes off. No matter how carefully you prepare the surface and how well you know how to paint. Stove polish is easy and can be renewed or touched up at any time one sees fit to do so.

I hear ya William & D.J. .....the Ol #30 is ready for a Williams polish on the Russian steel as she burnt of most of the paint Doug applied yrs. back in the first few months of good fires.
Currently she is unhooked from the stove pipe and vaccumed clean as a whistle and a generous application of WD-40 to the innards for her summers sleep.....My Boy's got me a fathers day present ...SHHHHHHHH...I am not supposed to know ...but they got me a nice Baldor dual wheel polisher and wheels and some polishing dope ...so the wife tells me ...SHE CANT KEEP A SECRET !!!......LOL....well actually I was gonna purchase one to do all the Nickle on the Glenwood till she had NO CHOICE BUT TO TO SPILL THE BEANS.
So my Glenwood will be standing proud come next heating season!

Nortcan,

Any good polish like Flitz etc.. will work fine on the nickel. An old trick I was told is a little powdery wood ash on a wet towel works great on nickel trim.

Back around 1978 I mixed up graphite and linseed oil. Made a great stove black on the Vermont Castings.

Another advantage of stove black is that it better preserves fine detail in the castings because it is thinner than paint.

For the stove barrel I have found that Rustolium barbecue paint in a can that you brush on, stays black and not that awful gray you so often see.
