    Not quite a wood stove or a whole house furnace. This came out of the cabinet shop next door to me and it looks like it got HOT or the forklift hit it?

    If the blower is in decent shape, (bearings, motor etc.), my Dutch bloodline would compel me to keep that for some unknown future use. The rest is scrap metal. Send it to the junkyard so the Chinese can get it and turn it into something that we throw away again in a few years.

    All it needs is a few 1/4" plates and some welding.

    Some welding and for a workshop might be OK. All depends on your skills or who you drink beer with. I've seen way worse repaired for shops, camps, and even Homes if the fellow didn't have anything else. But the it was repaired and rebricked!
