Greetings to all:
I am going to look at a large mica stove
, possible base burner or double heater type and will likely be transporting it back home with me.
It is in great condition, as far as I can tell from pictures I've seen...so it will need to be hauled as to not cause any damage. Looks like it is ready to burn.
It is fairly large and most if not all metal is cast iron. 6 foot tall, I think that includes the Finale.
Is it best to do some major disassemble or not prior to transport?
Can it be left whole with easily removed parts removed and laid down horizontally with plenty of padding for the ride? Or is it best to haul it only in upright position?
Was thinking I would take some lumber and a screw gun so I could whip up a cradle to contain it, plus put wood cross bracing internal for support.
Looking for advice from those who have had some experience hauling such a stove.
