Yo, dude. Don't talk about grinding anything off of the stove. Everything on these is there for a reason. You don't want one large piece of mica. A single large piece will cost 3 times as much as the smaller pieces to fit in the squares. Mica is cheap anyway. You trim it to fit with a pair of good scissors. You can stick in place with a few dabs of high heat gasket goop. Some of these stoves have little tiny gaps in the window frame to allow in some secondary air for the fire AND to prevent the thin holding frames from getting warped by overheating.

Your grate having a concave shape can help to reduce the grate jamming. You also have the center part of the grate that will depress the center of the coal bed when shaked and then you shake the rotating outside grate. Never had a jam on the Golden, not exactly the same grate but the same principle.
The Sunny has a convex grate shape so more pressure to the outer of the grate and the center has no moving part...
Anyway, the time will tell you exactly the best things to do with your stove.
Mica are not so hard to work with and don't need to be perfectly air tight. Once you have replaced them, you only have to keep them clean, and if you burn the stove correctly they can stay clean for a long time. Just don't burn wood in it if you want to keep the mica clean. Many bikers spend a lot more time cleaning the bike, specially for a H.D. :) :D :lol:

I will order the 36 small mica pieces :cry2: I will have a new grate & firepot cast (from these MINT state pieces) :mad: and I am going to have every piece of Nickel re-plated :mad3:

I believe this is the only one of these stoves in existence and its just TO incredible a stove NOT to make perfect again.

Very good decision Doug :idea: You will keep that "big" house very warm. My small G.B. has a 9" fire pot and can send a lot of heat if sollicitated.
Then you will be happy to have kept these 36 mica cause they reflect the heat in the house so well... 8-) and are integral parts of your antique base burner.
Waiting for the next photos...

Hey dougI I worked for Chelsea Clock co. in Everett, Ma. in the 80"s ( oooo...the memory's ) anyway back to reality, they make the world famous "ship's bell" clock and recondition clocks from centuries long past. They do plating like no else....yes you will pay but if you were to bring your one of a kind stove parts there they will treat it accordingly....or point you in the right direction. Contact them and pose the question. They also own teddy bear peanut butter umm umm good!

Doug, are the photos from the stove you bought? Yes 3K is a lot but when we love, money seems to have a different value :roll:
The cast iron détails are very nice on that stove. Once restored, it will be a real treasure.
Did you find out how to remove the magasine? Usually on these stoves the mag just lift out from the top loading door and stand just from gravity. On some bigger ones the mag is bolted to the stove's top.
Don't forget the dis-assembly and re-assembly photos :)

Yep...Mag is bolted to top :( I will make sure I take some pics when I get to it... right now I've sold 3 stoves that need to be shipped (Faure to Oregon, Glenwood to PA, Crane 44 to NY) My lil' Faure is heading for the high sea's Anthracite Coal Burning Boat / Marine Heater... Faure Stove (smallest most heavy duty coal stove I ever saw is going to installed on boat!). after I ship these 3 beauties I'll then have the space to focas on my lil' Diamond ;)

P.S... You guys know I did not pay $3k :lol: (I don't have that kinda money even if I wanted to).... loose a 0 ;)

yea... its pretty scattered and mixed in with some other lil' baseheaters now :fear: my shop is only 20x 16 and it holds my wood gear, my bobcat Z turn and my lumber :(
I really need spring time to be able to open things up to access stuff, my shop is way out back in the woods (no heat currently... I know, I know!) ... but I promise I will do exactly that as soon as im able Greg!!!
