    I purchased a home 7 years ago that had a wood stove disassembled in the garage. I have finally taken the time to look it over and am interested in trying to put it together. It appears to have all the parts less certain bolts and nuts. I think I have dry-fit it together fairly well, but I am not sure. Searches for a manual in the house have yielded no results in spite of the previous owners meticulous records.

    I have no experience restoring wood stoves, but I am "stoked" about the opportunity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I also just purchased a Washington Stoveworks Model 49 in good shape.

    I am wondering if someone has original photos of this stove and more information apart from the history link provided above.

    Did this thing come with a front cover/screen?
    Also what did the original fire grate look like?
    Did this come with an ash-pan as well?

    With photos I can fabricate close approximations.

    It is complete except for the parts above.
    There is a grate inside the firebox--but it seems it's out of a regular fireplace.
    In the photo attached a previous owner fabricated a cover plate.
