    After many years and even more miles driving looking for a cook stove in good condition I could afford my daughter found this one just 5 -6 miles from home for a very reasonable price. Looks pretty good for something made between 1920 and 1964 now doesn’t it?

    It looks like the fire box and grates are in good shape!

      The best I’ve ever seen on an antique stove. I don’t think it’s seen much use. Even the ash pan is in perfect condition.

    I think you found a “keeper” there! And once you get to know how to get the temperatures just right, you should have many years of fine meals!

      She found it for me, but I will be happy to let everyone know how it does once I find a place to hook it up. She’s only 17 so not much interest in cooking especially on a relic. lol

    Thanks guys!
    I took all the burners and stuff off the top and ran a wire brush all over any surface that isn’t white. Then I wiped everything down with vegetable oil even underneath and inside the oven. Now I need to drag a vacuum up and vacuum inside the firebox and the smoke chamber and get all that oiled down. I wondering if I should actually oil the grate and inside the firebox itself or leave those parts alone? Also pulled the ash drawer and brought it down to the house for a good cleaning and some high temp paint. It’s just thin sheet metal and starting to show it’s age.
