Hi I am new, I just got a Happy Thought parlor stove to use in my small greenhouse. The grate needs to be welded but is missing pieces, does anyone have photos of the inner workings? Thank you so much.

Hello, and welcome to the forum.
You really need your own thread for this stove, so if you could go to here: Hand Fired Coal Stoves & Furnaces Using Anthracite Coal
and click on "New Topic" at the top left, you can start your own thread. Please include good pictures of your stove, the parts needed, along with numbers that may be on it.

Welcome to the forum. If you put your town and state in your profile, there may be a member nearby that can help you out.

I have a Happy Thoughts parlor stove, so post some pictures, and I'm sure we can help you out.
