I haven't sprayed those screws in case it has to stay in. But I'd like to take it out. It doesn't look right, does it?

Can't tell from the pic, but the fire pot has to be cast iron or lined with fire brick, or both.

Yes. I think I'll use the rest of the HWI to seal the 116 and line the firepot but not this exact one. I must find someone somewhat local and have it remade. There must be people here.
I didn't notice the metal at the top part of the body when I bought it and wouldn't have cared, I just thought it was pretty. But things I disapprove of are sometimes normal so I'll leave it for now.
Plenty of time. I never had a minute when the children were young but now I seem to have all the time in the world. This is the first year I have disconnected and removed the pipes for the stoves. Getting Roman Holidays with the pandemic on. I suppose that helps. Looks bigger in the picture perhaps. Only twelve inches across the top and ten deep, the firepot. It was cracked when I bought it but was collecting retirement projects.

How to disassemble a stove.
Useful advice when moving or trying to work on a stove.

"When you go to pick up the 116. If you bring some tools, the stove can be disassembled into manageable weight sections. I've moved two 118, which are larger and a bit heavier, by myself and a small hand truck with straps to manage it down steps. Rope will work just as well to hold the parts to the hand truck. Bring lots of blankets to wrap parts in and some heavy duty cartons.

1. The ash drawer section of the stove just sits into the four legged base. Just gravity - no fasteners used there.
2. The door hinges are just a pin that sits into the stove body castings. You lift up on the doors and they come off easily.
3. The bonnet, and round cover under it, have a hook into a hole to pivot on. Just tilt as you lift those off.
4. The nickel plated skirts just lift off.
5. On the Modern Oaks, the four grate bars in their frame are held in place by a large cotter pin just up inside the front corners of the ash drawer door opening. The two back corners of the frame are pins that slide into grooves in the upper back corners of the ash drawer. Pull those two cotter pins with pliers and the front of the frame drops downward. Be careful not to let it drop all the way down. Maybe wad up some old towels and place them under the grates to catch it all. Then just slide the frame forward and out.

The first picture is a worm's-eye view of a 118 with it's ash drawer floor pan removed, looking up into the stove. The front of the stove is on the left - the rear of the stove on the right. You can see the two cotter pins that hold up the front of the grate frame in the two left most corners. The two right corners are the rear of the stove showing the pins. Second picture is a close-up of one of the front corner cotter pins. Third picture is a close-up of one of the rear corner pins.

Now the stove is only about half the weight.

Make sure to keep the firepot section upright. If you lay it on it's side, the firepot liner make come loose from the pot and break on the long trip home.

If you wish to make the weight of the parts even more manageable, the barrel and top casting can be unbolted from the firepot and ash drawer."

Well. There are worse ways of wasting time, so I'm going to keep tapping and spraying and it will teach me something to take it apart completely and see what I can do.
I'm not retired yet, but I'm enjoying just having the dogs and cats here and I can do whatever I want! I was looking inside the Viking too. Brick a mess etc. These layoffs have been been useful for a few of us in town that work full time because it's given us a chance to clean house in a way we don't often.

I did not know that wood pellets were dirtier than coal. Didn't say which coal, but still....

MMM. Still! We're cleaner than ...oh right not just wood pellets. Anthracite is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. Forgetting my basics.

Sigh. When I told my Grandma I was thinking she said
I know. I can hear the machinery working. Long ago.
