It may be a shock to your system to eat off such a sanitary cooking top. Use caution lol


Some never want to be part of the work, but they want to be part of the outcome. The work is where you find out who's worth being part of the outcome.

It is true that I've marveled at the state of your stove over the years but I've seen worse and I have faith in you. Good luck tomorrow.

Are you starting with a 6" side grinder or a small chain saw to rough it out?

It might be quicker if you just hook up a rosebud and burn it off!

Back in the day, my Gram had those old cast iron skillets, and when they got all that debris on them, the old women used to throw them into the trash barrel and burn it off. Wouldn't it be easier to haul the stove outside and pile debris around it, and burn it all off?
I would think the smoke from that might convert the heathens to thinking the gates of h*ll had opened or you might have just found the cure for Coronavirus in that toxic smoke.

Just to be clear, REPLACING the stove does NOT constitute cleaning it!


I have nothing clever to put here.

Les, I donít want to sound like OSHA here, but with the shortage on PPEís during this epidemic; do you really think itís fair to take on a task like that, when the necessary protective gear required for such a task, might be better used elsewhere to treat infected persons?

Trapper Les,

If your stove is not an antique, you should be able to remove the door. This makes cleaning the stove much easier. To remove my stove door I have to open it part way, to the mid point, and on each hinge is a lever you pry up. You then just grasp the door on each side and pull straight up the door angle.

If you check on YouTube there may be a video on it.

Just make sure that the hinges don't snap back to the closed position. The spring is extremely strong, but can be pried back out with a long screwdriver.

Good luck!

Jeff,

Yes, close to it, but it's what in the owners manual for oven cleaning tell you. Besides, who usually cleans the oven...... A woman! They've got appendages on the front of them that will drag across the inside of the door. smile This takes the door out of the equation.

That 4 coil 330 (?) is dangerous, but can be set if you use a setter (long screwdriver) and follow the instructions.

P.S. Keep you fingers out of there! LOL

30 post and you guys don't get it. Les stove is a wood stove, and he better hurry up cause it's going to 0*F with a 30 mph north wind. So those pipes better be cleaned PDQ.

Thanks for all the good thoughts, well wishes and advise. I did start by wiping down the "table lands" when I was doing dishes and had a sink full of hot soapy water. I am pondering the soaking of the burner grates next, and the associated clean up of the oil catch basins, if that is the correct stove nomenclature.

I will pace myself, and ease into this slowly , with caution, and optimism .

Stay tuned.

Rally, no woman has set foot here for a while, but there is always that rare chance. As soon as the stove is clean, I am looking for the fox foot the kitten drug out of my trapping bag, I can smell it somewhere but cannot place it.

Les,
Those grease catchers under the burners can be replaced on some models, for like $8 each, or in todays fur market, about 4 XXXL fleshed and dried winter beaver, but on second thought just chisel out what you can and call it good.
The kitten. Do you have a mouse problem, or are you waiting until it gets bigger to use for a mitten liner?
That fox foot you think you smell is probably just coyote lure you got on your hands and then the end of your nose last month. Takes about 60 days sometimes to get used to the smell.

Love the board holding the door! We just replaced one that had a randomized auto door opener...wife couldnít walk past it without getting nailed!
They sure donít make things the way they used to...the one we replaced was newer than the replacement by at least 10 yrs.
A few years back we sold the old farm on the hill. The house was from the late 30s and had been remodeled and updated in the 50s and again in early 2000. It still had a working gas clothes dryer in it from the 50s remodel.


Just gonna send it...

The top looks pretty good. I would like to see a picture of the oven.


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

Les's stove is something of a legend on trapperman.

That coffee pot is a classic! Good job on the stove, Les. The board looks like something that I would do.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

That coffee pot has brewed many a fine cup of coffee in it's day....I can attest to that ;as well as when Bogmaster almost empty coffee cup is refilled.


but I survived a cup or two.

Much older, it was old when I bought the first house that stove was in back in 84. That stove top weighs a ton too.

That stove is an old Coronado and I still have the book for it too, came with the old house next door. The stove seems to weigh about 400 lbs and took two of us to move it. Works good though. I have used the broiler on the bottom a bit too. Most folks don't appreciate that feature.

I doubt I could shoot through that thing with my deer rifle! Does it still have the original shipping label on the back from when it came over on the Mayflower?


I have nothing clever to put here.

That is an empty yogurt container with a few eggshells in it. I throw that sort of stuff in a humus pile near the edge of the garden.
