Wish they'd stopped when they got to that point with mine ! I think a previous owner of my 118 used it as a rock crusher. :mad:

One pair of grates were broken and poorly welded. There's tips of triangles broken off near the breaks. Plus, the triangular shaped ends of both long shaker bars are beat almost round by the shaker handle socket ! :mad: :mad:

So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.
