So far this is under $50 for paint, brass polish, and maybe a new door gasket if needed. Stove Brite Satin Black looks great on these old Lopis. Does it have burn tubes in it and if so, how do they look? Any sagging or cracking?reconditioning isn't something i had considered, I would hate to just 'dump it' in a landfill so even if i got a new one i may keep it in the basement mancave for atmosphere.
Condition wise, Its got some light rusting on the 'roof', but the firebricks are all good, the door glass is not scratched but the brass around the door is tarnished so i would want a new door probably, and a new trim piece, also needs sanding and a paint job (I had painted the top about 10 years ago for similar rusting or paint bubbling reasons) i have attached a couple pics.
Hmm, ok this sounds more like the predecessor to the Answer. I forget the model number It's not the most efficient stove. Fixed up it would still bring $3-400. I'd put that money toward a modern stove.no there are no burn tubes - just grey fire bricks- there is a small crack on one of the bricks on the bottom right but nothing loose so i will let that go......I guess i should contact lopi for an exact gasket fit or just buy generic and glue it on (i recall doing something like that 10 years back)
