Hi yall. I have a question. I have a Premium Oak #64 that i am restoring. I cannot seem to remove the top grate because of a slide handle. The grate is loose and i can maneuver it a bit but not enough to get it out. Any suggestions

It may have a tab or tabs that index into the body of the stove. Try moving the lever from one extreme to the other in small increments and clean and lift the grate at the opposite side. It may be encrusted with crapola so keep scraping it off and at some point it will start to give. A little penetrating oil may help the process.

From what I see in your pictures, the ring grate should just be sitting on a ledge around the bottom of the firepot. If it's free enough to be moved left/right by the shaker handle, try lifting the edge of the ring that is furthest away from the shaker handle and slide the handle into the firepot along with ring as you tilt and lift the ring up.

The two claw dump grates in the center may have a retaining plate that needs to be unbolted to slide them and their gears (called "cogs") out through an opening in the ash pan area.

Susan,

You have to remove that small square nut that is below the flat grate handle.

That front plate will come off and you can lift the round grate from the back and lift out.

I can move the grate just fine. Just could not remove it. I will remove the screw and plate that should do it.
Also wandering about the little rollers they seem not to roll.

The rollers are probably just rusted up. Once you remove the grate they will lift out of the slots.

ah ha, so are you the vinegar lady from antique stove collectors ?

if so, the results you've been getting are quite good.

BTW that looks like a seriously big stove.

The pot when measured across the middle is 16". The base is 20"x 20". Im looking for a stand for it if anyone comes across one. And a shaker handle and a pot lid 10". And if there is a handle that goes on the grate mover I need that too. And some mica. I think thats it. Lol
