    Parts Needed for Enterprise Savoy Cookstove

    The (I believe cast iron) baffles that hang inside of the firebox of the stove have warped, cracked and broken away. They take the brunt of the flame so the sheet metal exterior and oven wall don't have to. The Enterprise Fawcett factory burned down (sadly, ironically) in 2012 and I have had a...

    Anybody out there made or repaired their own firebrick in a cookstove? A couple months ago I found replacement firebricks for an old Findlay Oval, about $250. Since then Heartland (who has been making the Oval) has been bought by Aga and those same firebricks are now $850+ I've seen some...

    Antique gas cookstove (Glenwood Duplex) with an oven problem
