    I want to restore a Timberline stove that we purchased new in 1984. It probably needs a new baffle board. I have already removed it and it looks quite warped. The board measures 21” x 10” x 1/4”. Where could I purchase a new baffle? Thank you for any advice.

    Yes, it's time to replace the baffle. One will have to be made. A metal fabricating shop can do this for you.

    Update: I read in a post about having a metal fabricator make a baffle plate. So I was able to locate one nearby and should have my new baffle in a few days. Now does anyone have some advise about prepping and painting the exterior? I bought a can of Rustoleum high heat paint. Will that work?

    It will work. Go over the stove with steel wool, vacuum all the dust, then wipe down with alcohol. Paint in a well ventilated area. It will take 2 cans at least.

    Thanks for the helpful advice! Fortunately, there are only a few small spots of surface rust. I treated them with vinegar (that’s the only acid on hand) and the rust came right off. I’m looking forward to seeing my stove looking new again. I’ll post a photo when it’s done.
