    Here are some photos. It looks like it has surface rust. I wanted to get your opinion if you think it could be restored. Brian

    No cracks showing in the pictures. That's a good start. How does it look inside?

    I've done a few of those, and they're interesting trying to get everything to stay in one place long enough to tighten up those little tie rods. If you could quickly grow a third hand (not too big) it'd help immensly. Really really cool stove, though. I'm a huge Lange fan.

    By the way, if you decide to sell it as is, please let me know. Thank you, and happy heating!

    Dunno....is that a seam or crack on the right hand side of the 'floor' in the arch photo?

    Looks like a removable plate of some sort.
