Ive never seen so many pieces to a stove before... Im not sure I want to tackle this one but could not let it rot away :(

All the parts are their including the foot rests and base, I think one piece on the base under ash pan needs to be recast or welded, all the nickel is gone (Its so gone, I cant even tell what parts are supposed to be nickel) :cry:
the grate, firepot, magazine, doors are all in good shape.

If I take this thing apart totally it would be 100 pieces im sure... I sure hope I can remember how to put it back together toothy

Im not sure if this is a Stewart or what? Says Stewart on Finial, st. something er other on base, #12 on rear :wtf:

I will say the design of firepot and magazine access is great (Open top and magazine drops in, open front doors and firepot slides right out)

If you are going to take her apart just take plenty of pictures so you know which part goes to what.

IDK :mad3: This one needs more work than the other one (its a shame because I like the look of this one better with all the rounded doors)...
