I naively thought I was making out like a bandit when I bought a stove for $50 that the guy told me was a wood-stove that was converted to gas. Oh how wrong I was. I'll be the first to admit that I know little/nothing about wood-stoves, especially antique ones. Turns out this one is an early 1900's (not sure of the exact date) Columbian Kerosene stove. It's a beautiful appliance but in addition to my serious doubts of it's operation in it's current state, my partner and I had really been hoping for a wood-stove. Is it at all possible to convert this ol' bird to wood or am I dreaming? At very least what are the chances of salvaging it to be used with Kero? It seems to be in pretty good condition, no rust really and all moving parts still move. Help please.
