I bought a Century FW2800 stove last summer for the house I was renovating and it has been great as our primary heat source. I kept two old pots of water on top of the stove last winter to try to keep the humidity up to 40% or more because I build musical instruments and have usually from 10 to 20 on hand at any given time. The top of the stove has an overall layer of surface rust and I'd like to spiff it up a bit before the coming winter. The stove blacking type products I have seen all say they are only for cast iron stoves. I can also paint the top with high temperature paint, but would prefer something that would be less smelly and easier to reapply more often. I'll be grateful for any advice.
